Aurora Corporate documentation

Installing all-in-one package

All-in-one package allows you to deploy Aurora as a part of complete environment that includes mail server software, web server with PHP and database backend.

The installer was tested on Ubuntu Server 20.04. Below, you'll find installation instructions for that system.

  1. Download the installer:
curl https://afterlogic.com/download/afterlogic-aurora-ubuntu.tar.bz2 -o afterlogic-aurora-ubuntu.tar.bz2
  1. Install the prerequisites:
sudo apt install ansible unzip bzip2 -y
  1. Unpack the installer:
tar jxvf afterlogic-aurora-ubuntu.tar.bz2
chmod 0755 -R ./afterlogic-aurora-ubuntu/
cd afterlogic-aurora-ubuntu
  1. Start the installation process:
sudo ansible-playbook install.yml

Installing antivirus package

Aurora Corporate all-in-one package can be integrated with ClamAV antivirus, but due to its high resource usage, antivirus isn't included in the package. You can install it additionally, just make sure your system has 4Gb RAM or more.

curl -O https://afterlogic.com/download/add-clamav-ubuntu.tar.bz2
tar jxvf add-clamav-ubuntu.tar.bz2
cd add-clamav-ubuntu/
sudo ansible-playbook install-clamav.yml

Finalizing the installation

Once the installation is completed, you should be able to access the web interface via URL of the server and proceed with configuring the product.

Make sure you have primary hostname of your mailserver installation specified in /etc/exim4/exim4.cnf file, e.g.:

primary_hostname = yourdomain.com

Restart Exim service to apply changes:

service exim4 restart

Upgrading the installation

To upgrade from previous v9 of Aurora Corporate, there's no need to reinstall the entire environment, you just need to update the web components. Backup html/data/ directory, deploy new package and bring data directory back:

curl http://afterlogic.com/download/aurora-corporate-mta.zip -o aurora-corporate-mta.zip
mv /opt/afterlogic/html/data /opt/afterlogic/data_bak
rm -rf /opt/afterlogic/html
unzip aurora-corporate-mta.zip -d /opt/afterlogic/html
rm -rf /opt/afterlogic/html/data
mv /opt/afterlogic/data_bak /opt/afterlogic/html/data
chown -R afterlogic:afterlogic /opt/afterlogic/html/data

Then log into admin interface and run "Create/Update Tables" and "Update Configuration" tools under Database Settings screen.
