Infolog version 3.1 released

Filed under: Egroupware,Java — Raging Goblin @ 18:16

Infolog version 3.1 is released! Egroupware added support for more sophisticated types of encryption of the passwords in the database. Infolog client now has an extra configuration option to support the following encryption types: MD5, MD5_Crypt, SHA256_Crypt and SHA512_Crypt.



  1. Hello. My eg is installed under https and apache asks for autherntication before showing eg login page. I think that authentication is the reason why I can’t connect to my eg installation. By the way it’s not installed inside the webserver root, but inside a subfolder. Is there a way to solve this? Thank you

    eg 1.8.004
    infolog 3.1
    apache 2

    • From your description I guess you get a popup window from the browser asking for credentials. My best guess is that you somehow have configured basic authentication through a passwd file. You can read more about this if you google a little bit for basic authentication and apache.

      • Hi, thanks for the answer.
        Yes. I have configured the webserver for basic authentication, because the server is exposed to internet and I have other folders too. The problem is: how to let infolog ask me for the id & pwd once I run the synchronization?

    • I am sorry, but Infolog cannot handle basic authentication as a browser
      does. It handles authentication by asking username/password for every
      webexposed method. You will have to put the webservice outside this
      directory. On the other hand I do not completely understand why you want
      to secure such a directory completely. When logging in on Egroupware,
      you now have to login twice. Once to get past the basic authentication
      and a second time to log in on Egroupware.

  2. Ok, thanks for the answer

    By the way I don’t care to wrtite the login twice, the web authentication allows a more secure evironment, and in this way I can avoid all the bothering bot and spiders trying to get a user id and pwd from eg and teh other websites hosted on my server
