Recently, I noticed “Failed to save changes” error when tried to move events between distinct calendars. After a short investigation I found that this bug is already fixed, but not packaged for an easy upgrade, so I will shortly describe how to apply fix for Debian Wheezy and Kolab 3.3.
I have been using self hosted Kolab Groupware everyday for quite a while now. Therefore the need arose to monitor process activity and system resources using Monit utility.
This weekend, I have spent some time investigating SSL certificate-based authentication and implementing it in Kolab web-based user interface. This topic is fascinating but definitely too broad to be briefly described in a single blog post, so do not look at it as a complete solution, but treat it only as a proof of concept.
After a longer period of time, I have decided to install Kolab and use it as a personal information manager. The installation process went as expected until the setup process tried to install the Roundcube database and failed miserably.

A quite lengthy but very straightforward description of the Kolab Groupware integration with Piwik Web Analytics. The integration process is simpler than you think as the additional application (Piwik) is hosted externally and doesn’t use a single sign-on.
Yesterday I added a few mail aliases using Kolab admin interface and went to sleep. Today I noticed high CPU usage and quickly found that there is a small problem with pykolab 0.5.11-5 package.
I am using mainly Polish language so it is obvious that fairly quickly I encountered a problem with national characters in the subject line. Problem is not fixed in Debian packages (using Debian Wheezy x86_64 and Kolab Systems – Public Repositories) but luckily it is very easy to fix.
Almost four months ago I mentioned about moving personal data to the private server. Now it is reality as I have already started to move and organize personal data using Kolab groupware server. To check out basic functionality check out my previous blog post because I will only show you additional software I am using.
