Am using Ubuntu 14.04. Am stuck with the following issue:

My goal is to install and have running HORDER GROUPWARE 5.2 on my Domain/Hosting:

Download on Github:
https:// github .com/horde/horde/releases/tag/groupware-5.2.2
Installation on Github:

Quick Install

These are very terse instructions how to install Horde Groupware and its prerequisites on a LAMP sytem. They are addressed to experienced administrators who know exactly what they are doing. For more detailed instructions, start reading below at Prerequisites_.

  1. Compiling PHP for Apache 2::

    cd php-x.x.x/ ./configure --with-apxs2=/usr/sbin/apxs2 \ --with-gettext --enable-mbstring=all --enable-mbregex \ --with-gd --with-png-dir=/usr --with-jpeg-dir=/usr \ [--with-mysql|--with-pgsql|--with-oci8] [--with-tidy] [--with-ftp] make make install

Can't even start with this method couse there is not such "php-x.x.x" folder on my ubuntu root, and there is not such think on internet called "compiling php for apache2". Any idea?

  1. Restart Apache.

  2. Register Horde PEAR channel::

    pear channel-discover pear.horde.org

  3. Set Horde installation directory::

    pear install horde/horde_role pear run-scripts horde/horde_role

  4. Install Horde Groupware::

    pear install -a -B horde/groupware

  5. Run installation script::


  6. Test Horde Groupware::

    http:// your-server /horde/test.php

So I try to install it with the other way that is explained on the INSTALLATION guide:


The following prerequisites are REQUIRED for Horde Groupware to function properly.

  1. A webserver that supports PHP.

    Horde Groupware is primarily developed under the Apache and Lighttpd webservers, which we recommend. These servers are available from:

    http:// httpd.apache .org/ http:// www.lighttpd .net/

(MY NOTE: i use Apache 2 I have LAMP already installed and functioning well on my OS) OK! Done,

  1. A web server with PATH_INFO support.

    The dynamic interfaces of Horde Groupware requires a web server that correctly sets the PATH_INFO environment variable for all PHP scripts. Every modern web server supports this, but you might have to enable this feature in the web server configuration. e.g. Apache servers require::

    AcceptPathInfo On

    Lighttpd servers require::

    "broken-scriptfilename" => "enable"

Can't continue from this point couse I can't find on internet "How to config the web server apache and change AcceptPathInfo to ON,

  1. PHP 5.3.0 or above.

    PHP is the interpreted language in which Horde Groupware is written.

    .. Note:: If possible, you should install PHP with your operating system's package manager. Alternatively you build PHP yourself.

    To build PHP from sources, you can obtain it at

    http:// www.php .net/

    Follow the instructions in the PHP package to build PHP for your one of the following options:: system. If you use Apache, be sure to build PHP as a library with

    --with-apache --with-apxs --with-apxs2

etc, etc, etc more on the INSTALLATION link.

Any idea on how to keep installing it? there is no resources on internet (videos, or tutorials) on how to install it in a different way or somethink, only for older versions like HORDE GROUPWARE 1.2 but this is really old software, what am trying to install is the 5.2


Horde is not just an application, rather a bundle of various packages, each performing a certain task. Each of these has in turn its own dependencies that must be set up beforehand. Packaging (and maintaining) something like this would be a huge load of work impacting relatively few users; thus manual install is pretty much your only option.

At the Community Wiki you have a detailed installation guide, that may facilitate the task to some extent. But it still requires some commitment.
