Roundcube (Webmail) "loosing" all user settings and contacts

(0 comments)

So I had been wondering why my roundcube had lost all the contacts and settings for my users (I changed DB host after  a server outage - see my older post).

Checked the DB and seen this:

roundcubemail=# select user_id, username, mail_host, created  from users;
 user_id | username | mail_host |            created
---------+----------+-----------+-------------------------------
       3 | User3    | localhost | 2016-04-06 14:32:28.637887+02
       2 | User2    | localhost | 2013-09-26 15:32:08.848301+02
       4 | User2    | 127.0.0.1 | 2019-06-17 14:21:18.059167+02
       5 | User1    | 127.0.0.1 | 2019-07-19 14:26:41.113583+02
       1 | User1    | localhost | 2013-08-29 10:39:47.995082+02
(5 rows)

(I changd the actual usernames to User1,2,3 ..

Turns out whlie I was changing stuff I had changed the config from

$config['default_host'] = 'localhost';

to

$config['default_host'] = '127.0.0.1';

Which resulted in roundcube thinking this is a different host - apparently it doesn't check/resolve hostnames to IP, but instead just assumes each is their own.

The solution was simple: changing it back to 'localhost' from '127.0.0.1' -- hope this maybe helps someone else too. Took me a bit to figure it out.
