How to install roundcube
Before installing roundcube on a cPanel server you should know your mysql root password. Replace DATABASEPASSWORD with your mysql root password.
If you have already used a RoundCube installation please make sure you remove any traces of it .
Follow the steps given below and remove any traces of it with,
cd /usr/local/cpanel/base
rm -rf roundcube*
mysql -p -e ‘drop database roundcube’;
chattr -i /usr/local/cpanel/base/frontend/x/webmaillogin.html
chattr -i /usr/local/cpanel/base/webmaillogin.cgi
/scripts/upcp
You will have to specify your root password when prompted.
