- Make sure you are running MacOS X version 10.5 or better.
- Log in as a user with the administrative rights.
- Unpack the CommuniGate Pro archive using any uncompressing utility, or start the Terminal application and use the shell tar command:
- tar xzpf CGatePro-Darwin-platform-version.tgz
- The CommuniGate.pkg package directory will be created in the current directory.
- Install the software by double-clicking the CommuniGate.pkg icon.
- The CommuniGate Pro software will be installed in the /usr/local/ directory.
The Installer creates the startup directory /Library/StartupItems/CommuniGatePro, so the CommuniGate Pro Server will auto-start on the MacOS X System older than version 10.10. The Installer creates also /Library/LaunchDaemons/CommuniGatePro.plist item to control automatic start on newer versions of MacOS X.
The Installer packs the startup directory /System/Library/StartupItems/Sendmail into the /System/Library/StartupItems/Sendmail.tar, and the /System/Library/StartupItems/Postfix directory into the /System/Library/StartupItems/Postfix.tar archive, so the legacy sendmail and postfix daemons will not auto-start. If you decide to uninstall CommuniGate Pro, these archives will be unpacked and the legacy startup directories will be restored.
- If your system was running POP, IMAP, or poppwd servers, remove the lines describing those servers from the /etc/inetd.conf file.
- The Installer renames the /usr/bin/mail program into the /usr/bin/LegacyMail. If you decide to uninstall the CommuniGate Pro system, the legacy mail program will be renamed back to /usr/bin/mail.
- The Installer creates the new /usr/bin/mail application - a drop-in substitution for the legacy mail program.
- The Installer creates the "base directory" /var/CommuniGate and the Server uses it by default. You can move the "base directory" to any other location. In this case, open the /Library/StartupItems/CommuniGatePro/CommuniGatePro file and update it.
- Restart the MacOS X System.
- Proceed with Initial Configuration.
