Global Configuration Helper

Plugin: Global Config - Reconfigure Dada Mail's Global Configuration

This plugin allows you to easily drop back into Dada Mail's included Installer, allowing you to then change its global configuration, just like you would, during an installation or upgrade.

Dada Mail's global configuration is saved in its .dada_config file, which the installer writes during an install/upgrade. This file can be edited after an installation or upgrade by hand, but can be much easier done with this plugin.

By default, when installed, this plugin will only be accessable when logged in using the Dada Mail Root Password.


This plugin can be installed during a Dada Mail install/upgrade, using the included installer that comes with Dada Mail. The below installation instructions go through how to install the plugin manually.

Change permissions of "global_config.cgi" to 755

The, global_config.cgi plugin will be located in your, dada/plugins diretory. Change the script to, 755

Configure your .dada_config file

Now, edit your .dada_config file, so that it shows the plugin in the left-hand menu, under the, Plugins heading:

First, see if the following lines are present in your .dada_config file:

 # start cut for list control panel menu

 # end cut for list control panel menu

If they are, remove them.

Then, find these lines:

 #                                      {
 #                                      -Title      => 'Global Configuration',
 #                                      -Title_URL  => $S_PROGRAM_URL."/global_config.cgi",
 #                                      -Function   => 'global_config',
 #                                      -Activated  => 0,
 #                                      },

Uncomment the lines, by taking off the, "#"'s:

                                        -Title      => 'Global Configuration',
                                        -Title_URL  => $S_PROGRAM_URL."/global_config.cgi",
                                        -Function   => 'global_config',
                                        -Activated  => 0,

Save your .dada_config file.
