Installed on root user

In the shuffle to update to v60, I installed mailinabox on root.

Everything is running fine, but I would have rather installed it on a different user.

Is there an easy way to uninstall miab from root and reinstall on a different user?


Mail-in-a-Box always installs as root and requires root to run.
Unless by “install it on a different user” you mean "not on /root/mailinabox". but rather on /home/somebody/mailinabox

If that’s the case, you can do the following:

sudo mv /root/mailinabox /home/somebody/ # Or other directory
cd /home/somebody/mailinabox
sudo bash setup/

Yes I am referring to the install being on the root user’s home directory at /root/mailinabox/.
I’ll give your instructions a shot and report back.

Reporting back: everything is working fine for now
