This document is intended as a base to quickly install Kopano Server and WebApp You will need a server with a supported distribution, i.e. Debian 7 and 8, Ubuntu 14.04 and 16.04, RHEL 6 and 7, CentOS 6 and 7 and SLES 12, and install Kopano Server packages, Kopano WebApp, Apache webserver and MySQL server.

(warning) To install Kopano on Univention, installation can be done via the marketplace.


Add repositories

Our repositories are available at for customers and partners with a valid subscription. The serial is needed to access these repositories.
Debian and Ubuntu RHEL and CentOS SUSE

Install Kopano packages


We will now install kopano-server-packages and the MySQL server.

kopano-server-packages is a meta package that has a dependency to the basic kopano-core packages

The following is installed with kopano-server-packages

  • kopano-backup
  • kopano-dagent
  • kopano-gateway
  • kopano-ical
  • kopano-monitor
  • kopano-presence
  • kopano-search
  • kopano-server
  • kopano-spooler
  • kopano-utils
  • (and their dependencies)

Install Kopano and MySQL/MariaDB

Debian and Ubuntu RHEL and CentOS SUSE

Now create a user in the MySQL server

$ sudo mysql -u root -p   
mysql> GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON kopano.* TO 'kopano'@'localhost';

Change the MySQL password in the /etc/kopano/server.cfg

# The user under which we connect with MySQL 
mysql_user = kopano 
# The password for the user (leave empty for no password)
mysql_password = <KOPANO-MYSQL-PASSWORD>

Now start  the kopano-server

$ sudo systemctl start kopano-server


Create a user

There are several user plugins in Kopano, in this example we will use the database plugin so we can create users directly in the Kopano database;

$ sudo kopano-admin -c user1 -f "John Doe" -e user1@kopano.demo -p "PASSWORD"

To see if the kopano-server is started and contains users, use kopano-admin -l 

User list for Default(2):
        Username        Fullname        Homeserver
        SYSTEM          SYSTEM          Kopano
        user1           John Doe



We will now install the main client of Kopano; WebApp

We already added the repository before so we only need to install it.

We will use Apache as webserver

Install WebApp

We will only install kopano-webapp, to see all available plugins use the command 'apt-cache search kopano-webapp' 

$ sudo apt install apache  kopano-webapp
