SOGo in Docker container on QNAP TS-453mini

The QNAP ContainerStation allows to run LXC and Docker containers. According to the Internet, this should be less resources consuming than virtualization via KVM.

Here’s how I run SOGo in a docker container.

Upgrade from SOGo 1.3.14 to 2.0.2 on Debian 6.0.2 (Squeeze)

Since I upgraded my iPhone to iOS 6, I get weird issues with the SOGo Calendar. Looking at the ChangeLog, it seems it’s time to upgrade. Here are the (really simple) directions to upgrade from SOGo 1.3.14 to 2.0.2 on Debian 6.0.2 (aka Squeeze).

Proxify SOGo access with OpenBSD

I used to run all of my services on the same OpenBSD server. Now that I switched to a virtualized environment, I’m on the way to dispatch the services on various virtual machines. As I have issues with the family’s iPhones and the SOGo 1.3.8.1 instance running on my OpenBSD gateway, I think it’s time to switch to an up-to-date version running elsewhere.

Here are the directions to publish a remote SOGo instance, here 1.3.13, with an OpenBSD Apache.

Configure SOGo to use MySQL socket

When connecting SOGo with MySQL, you may either use a remote or a local server.

To use a remote server, you’ll configure SOGo with such directives:

SOGoProfileURL = "mysql://sogouser:sogopass@mysqlhost:3306/sogodbname/sogo_user_profile";

To use a local MySQL server, you will need to access the mysql.socket file. And when it is secured with chroot&friends, the mysql.sock may not be where SOGo expects it. I have mine located at /var/chroot/mysql/mysql.sock. Normally, you would modify my.cnf to refer to the MySQL socket file. But, with SOGo, you must configure the directives as follow:

SOGoProfileURL = "mysql://sogouser:sogopass@%2Fvar%2Fchroot%2Fmysql%2Fmysql.sock/sogodbname/sogo_user_profile";

Just replace the host:port section with the path of the file, replacing every “/” with “%2F“.

That’s All Folks!

I will “simply” going to use it to synchronize calendars and contacts between SOGo and Microsoft Outlook.
