2010-11-23: 21:59 UTC     Roudcube 0.4.2 Database Reset Update

The database reset will be postponed until Thursday, December 2 at 1:00AM EST (Thursday, December 2 at 6:00AM UTC)

Please note that you will lose your 'Personal Addresses' address book entries, although your personal_ldap entries will remain unaffected.

Roundcube allows you to make a backup of your Personal Addresses. After logging in to Roundcube, select 'Address Book' from the top right of the page. Click on 'Personal Addresses' in the Groups pane on the left-hand side, then click 'Export contacts in vCard format', which is the folder icon + down arrow overtop the 'Contacts' pane. After the reset is done and your contacts disappear, you can import your saved contacts using the 'Import Contacts' button.

It turns out that our Roundcube 0.4.2 MySQL database structure, which was converted from 0.3, is a bit of a mess. The migration script supplied by Roundcube seems to have missed some indexes, constraints, and most importantly character encoding on tables and columns. We've applied some fixes, but odd problems are still cropping up.

We need to reset the database using the proper initialization SQL statements, but our testing shows that we won't be able to import the old data due to some inconsistencies. This means that after the database is reset, your settings will be lost, but your folders and email won't be affected. When you log back into Roundcube, it will be like logging in for the first time.

The database reset is scheduled for Thursday, November 25 at 1:00AM EST.
