Install a Roundcube Password plugin in Virtualmin

    1. Install the Roundcube script usually from Virtualmin dashboard by selecting server and then going into Install Scripts->Roundcube from the Available Scripts and install it the way you require by selecting the sub folder you wish to install
    2. Now Log into the server over SSH with the virtualmin username and password you created during creation of the virtual server. Go into the sub directory you just installed Roundcube script into. We are assuming you selected folder name as roundcube .Now navigate into path from server via SSH as
      cd /home/USERNAME/public_html/roundcube/
    3. Edit config/, and change this line:
      $rcmail_config['plugins'] = array('virtuser_file');

      To this line:
      $rcmail_config['plugins'] = array('virtuser_file', 'password');
    4. Setup the password plugin config file with the help of this command in SSH in the roundcube folder:
       cp plugins/password/   plugins/password/
    5. Enable Virtualmin driver. To do that, go ahead and edit "plugins/password/", and change this line:
$rcmail_config['password_driver'] = 'sql';
      To this:
 $rcmail_config['password_driver'] = 'virtualmin';
