Hello,

I installed OX Community 6.18 with the Mysql database separated from OX Server and using LDAP authentication in a CentOS 5 machine.

Just after install and start open-xchange-groupware service I get the following error in open-xchange.log

That's because the default permission for the file ldapauth.properties seem to be not fine (look below).

Code:
==> open-xchange.log.0 <==
SEVERE: /opt/open-xchange/etc/groupware/ldapauth.properties (Permission denied)
java.io.FileNotFoundException: /opt/open-xchange/etc/groupware/ldapauth.properties (Permission denied)

As can be seen, ldapauth.properties is owned by root and group root and cannot be read for the rest of the world:

Code:
# ls -l groupware/ldapauth.properties 
-rw-r----- 1 root root 1872 Dec 10 16:33 groupware/ldapauth.properties
I think this is a problem isn't it? and can be solved or setting read permission to the rest (chmod o+r ldapauth.properties) or assigning this file to open-xchange group (chown root:open-xchange ldapauth.properties)

Anyway the permissions should be set for the installer.

Is this a bug??
