PostPosted: Thu Mar 17, 2011 7:42 pm    Post subject: webmin problem Reply with quote

I've just installed SMS 1.5.6 to do a bit of testing. Looks good, but I've hit a bit a problem with Webmin. Maybe I've missed something....

I got the webmin login prompt, and attempted to use my root user and root password. Which failed. I'm now blocked, so I'm not getting very far.

Two questions - what should I have used as the webmin user name and password? Second, how do I clear the block on my laptop's IP?

Thanks.... Hope I didn't miss something in the directions.

Paul.

Default password and login info is available at

Simple restart webmin, although the ban is temporally, and not permanently.

Many thanks. Found the username/password in the Wiki (should have checked there earlier). I also tried a brute force approach - used an ssh login to remove the /var/webmin/blocked file.

I like the look and functionality of SMS. I've been using an Amahi server for a while, but I've never been all that happy with it - Fedora isn't my favourite distribution, and the whole system is a bit slow on the old box I'm using as a server for the moment.

I will probably reinstall SMS soon - I have a better machine nearly built. For the moment, I'm looking to run a print server, plus use it for DHCP/DNS for my local network. I'll also need to set up the NFS server, since almost all of my use is Linux based.

Having WebERP available is a bonus - works a good deal better in SMS than it ever did in Amahi.

Smile One suggestion - I've just installed my Salix build of Midnight Commander. Can't live with a system without MC, especially when I'm using SSH to access the machine. It would be nice if there was an SMS package available.

Are there any guidelines for adding other applications to SMS? I'm looking at building nut with the full CGI package, would make control of my APS Smart UPS much easier, and I'm sure there are other applications that could be useful for a server such as SMS.

Paul.

Midnight Commander is available by slackware at
http://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/linux/slackware/slackware-current/slackware/ap/mc-4.7.5.1-i486-2.txz
I'll add it since you are not the first who suggesting it.

SMS has genpower for UPS management, I use apsups myself, I'll look at nut.
You can use the slackbuild at slackbuilds.org
http://slackbuilds.org/repository/13.1/system/nut/

You can install any slackware package that hasn't have qt4 dependencies, since we are using qt3 and kde 3.5.10.
You can build everything from sources, just install the devel series and x-kde-addon for X headers if you want to compile apps with gui.

Great. I use MC all the time - shell link for file transfer, mcedit for editing remote files.... Can't live without it. My Salix build works fine, so it will do for the moment.

I'll have a look at genpower, though I suspect it doesn't do all that I want - nut has the advantage of being server/client, so it allows multiple machines to monitor the server. I'll have a look at the slackbuild. I've only looked at the Fedora build in the past, which is a bit limited, since it doesn't include the cgi scripts which would allow it to be controlled via a web browser.

Hmm. I thought I had the x-kde-addon installed, but when I tried to build mc, it failed on a missing x header file - /X.h. I'll have to check my install.

I'm still working my way through Webmin - I hope to have the DNS/DHCP servers configured soon, which will allow me to put the test version in to replace my current Amahi server.

I see the problem, a lot of X headers are missing, I'll add them either in X-kde-addon package or in a separate one in devel series.

I had no problem building nut and as far as I see has the full cgi you want
Code:
  --with-cgi\
  --with-cgipath=/var/www/cgi-bin/nut \
  --with-htmlpath=/var/www/htdocs/ups \

so I might add it to extra.

Great. I've just updated, so I'll see how some builds go in a bit.

Smile Thanks. Just installed it. Looks good. I'll have to see about building it for the rest of the network, see about the windows client as well. I only have one box that ever runs Windows, but I might as well see if I can get all the clients set up as well.

I've also grabbed eGroupware from extra. Have to complete the install, which has always been a bit of a pain with eGroupware, but its nice to see it available.

I'm thinking of setting up dnsmasq instead of bind (always have problems with named setup), but so far, it looks like SMS will be a very good replacement for Amhahi.

Paul.
