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 22.04, there's also a legacy version for Ubuntu 20.04. Below, you'll find installation instructions for these systems.

  1. Download the installer:

Ubuntu 22.04

curl -o aurora-products-mta-installer.tar.bz2

Ubuntu 20.04

curl -o aurora-products-mta-installer.tar.bz2

  1. Install the prerequisites:
sudo apt install ansible unzip bzip2 -y
  1. Unpack the installer:
tar jxvf aurora-products-mta-installer.tar.bz2
chmod 0755 -R ./aurora-products-mta-installer/
cd aurora-products-mta-installer
  1. Start the installation process:
sudo ansible-playbook install.yml -e product=aurora

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
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 with /adminpanel/ appended to it and proceed with configuring the product. Default admin login is superadmin, with an empty password.

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

primary_hostname =

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 -o
mv /opt/afterlogic/html/data /opt/afterlogic/data_bak
rm -rf /opt/afterlogic/html
unzip -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.
