Roundcube Cache/Ghost headers


SHADO Operative
I've noticed old message headers will show up in the inbox of Roundcube. There is no message when I try to read it, just the header. Refreshing the page or switching folders sometimes gets rid of these ghost messages in the inbox list, sometimes not.

I read that disabling the cache for roundcube can help this problem. Unfortuantely I have found a way to do this.

Has anyone else experienced anything like this? Any help would be appreciated.

Hello bogey9000,

This does definitely sound like caching, I've seen it as well. Is this the cPanel Roundcube install? Sounds like it is.

The config file for it is /usr/local/cpanel/base/3rdparty/roundcube/config/ and the value you want to change is $rcmail_config['enable_caching'] = TRUE; which you would set to false.

Every cPanel update will most likely reset this value though.
Thanks Dan, that seemed to help a lot. Yes, it is the cpanel install of Roundcube. I'll check what happens after the next cpanel update.

This seems to be a common problem with Roundcube. I see on their website they are close to another milestone. Hopefully the next update will address this issue.

Thanks again.
