A look at Nethservangelization for my people

I’m Happy Oh! so happy :upside_down: with my little new server Dell Vostro 220, 2 x Intel® Pentium® Dual CPU E2200 @ 2.20GHz

¡Más fiiino! :sunglasses:
Now begins this beautiful and interesting mission with this great tribe.


Great! Just for test or are you planning to put it in production?

Oh! :eyes: Of course. I want to put it in production. It’s a great opportunity in my life! … serious!

I have begun to install modules. Among those today I installed samba but not redefined the admin password, because I was to go to a meeting.

In the afternoon I could not access from ssh or charge the webgui. I guess in our knowledge base should be information about it but right now I must be another matter. ( :zipper_mouth: I 'm just here! Nethservangelized )

I followed to install:

  • Chamilo
  • Jokte
  • Kiwix and
  • Calibre

This installation of NS must then go Proxmox VE with pfSense

The aim is to draw the attention of the tutors , to a simple and robust product at a time. Even taking them out of their comfort zone ( … deb )

If within the universe of 18,000 school servers we manage to have installed 180 NS … or 18! we’d be winning.

A hug tribe


Without having done anything … this morning quite normal:

… Three minutes later, when viewing where samba change the password and then enter the Software Center …

How are you tackling this challenge? Please share, many people will be interested in, definitely.

Hello cacique @alefattorini

I’ve been reviewing our knowledge base , the forum, the wiki … And so I resolved! :sunglasses:

I am interested in riding on my NS a project that I check in Joomla 3, but the database gives me an error with the character set when i try to import it from PHPmyAdmin. I’ll import via cli. No problem for me.

The matter is that the vast community of tutors CBITs require PHPmyAdmin updated version (has been quite out of their ‘deb’ comfort zone) . Which is present in our repositories is when the latter is 4.6.1.

I have reviewed our knowledge base but I have not gotten any item related to update PHPmyAdmin in NS 6.7

I appreciate the help you can give us

NethServer 7 or SCL are the right way

About SCL (Software Collections)


About some notes:

Really is a problem from my other team, that give me a database with utf8mb4_general_ci collation, only compatible with Mysql +5.5.3.

This and that … Go ahead. Make my day! :clapper: … and then

… mysql55
… and Adrian and his small server they lived very happily

With The Software Collections ( SCL ) Repository that is ready, I hope that the limiting factor is just the Mysql version.

Within 13 hours I continue playing with NS and Chamilo

Greetings tribe!

So we are in our deb comfort zone?! :no_mouth: :no_mouth: :no_mouth:

Well that really its the case. There is so much to learn and so little time…

Hey Adrian @apradoc I was reading about https://www.docker.com/what-docker and I wonder which you guys is working with proxmox and NS?! Or Doker?!

Venezuela is Debian territory. You know that brother :wink:

I started to work on scl-mysql56 mainly because it is the former version. Do you think it is the right version or i do need to work on scl-mysql55.

I hope that at the end i will propose a specific phpmyadmin for this version (the epel version is destined to mysql51)

With mysql55 or 56 and the last version of php (with scl) I think that almost all web application could be installed on NS67 (waiting the NS7)

Greetings Stephane. That’s good news

I suspected from the beginning

I think that we can work with mysql56. The choice of the 5.5 I did it randomly about what I got in the scl.

This contribution is extremely important for tutors, not so much from the operational point of view but from the point of view of using it as an educational resource.

Requirements Chamilo: Apache (2.2+), MySQL 5.1+ (or MariaDB) and PHP 5.4+. Very similar to the CMS Jokte! (However, this consultation is important from the needs of other projects of intranet school: In the case of Xerte, Moodle and others)

It is an excellent resource while we try NS7.2.* Alpha3.

This is great news! :thumbsup:

Hey Tribe! :family:

Just arrive at our village, a peasant who is convinced that Nethserver is an excellent choice for The Schools Intranet.

This week with the help of @yondergb and other tutors, we installed the first server with Nethserver in a school in the greater Caracas,

… while in Delta Amacuro is starting tests thanks to the information and the links we share in our taiga.

Good this is a publication of welcome advance, due to the Nethservangelization that since the tribe have helped me to exercise.

Hugs tribal


Greetings Brothers and Sisters. (For @Alessia and soon also by Roxana :thumbsup: from Venezuela)

Yesterday :calendar_spiral: we were setting up with Nethserver network of one of the CBIT (acronym in Spanish of “Centro Bolivariano de Innovación Tecnológica” = Center Bolivarian Technological Innovation) of the Intranet system School of Venezuela, with the aim of creating a base NS image for other CBIT from all over the country (around +3000 in the whole country) and some school servers assigned to Educational Centres (+10000).

First of all, we are proud that already exist, reported with “Phone home” 18 servers with Nethserver in Venezuela taken of the hand of our brother @jgjimenezs . Our admiration and congratulations from the Tribe Caciquitxs. We want to have your guide to follow your example.

We met then @yondergb Roxana (next member) and my person to configure the network with the guidance of the brother @avalon_linux who is already doing the tests with Proxmox as it indicates ias indicated by the brother @Nas

We did the upgrade to NS 6.8 beta and together with @avalon_linux, we were getting to know the Shorewall to set the configuration of the NAT.

We are very aware of the orientation that our brother @robb can give us regarding the authentication with OpenLdap vital element in an intranet. In addition to learning from your vast experience from LinuxSchool. My fellow tribe know your story brother, and communicating with you makes them feel fortunate.

Here we pause for investigate and follow the best steps with best practices, about which we do not get - in our search hurried - some reference step-by-step in this valuable knowledge base. I am sure that there is.

Our brother @josean7link is aware of this exercise while still documenting in the base Red Hat as recommended by our brother @filippo_carletti

In several parts of our country are looking forward to having to Nethserver working 100%, even one of the compadres, the next member of this tribe, want to do their tests with Alfalfa (NS7Alpha3).

Our desire from Latin america is that the Spanish-speaking us to join to add strength in this initiative, and to create a group where we can enrich this knowledge base in our language. Is that any way to always have with the tribe: @davidochobits @mabeleira @drivemeca @jaimemg and so many others.

I appreciate the help that you can provide us to improve this process of training for the project for the School Servers which directly depends on the implementation of the project of School Intranet.

Don’t worry be happy! we have the Tribe Nethserver



Excellent news, brother @apradoc ! soon begin the timetable for meeting the Spanish team.

Is the english-only rule a problem for the Spanish community? We may work on it and try to solve.


Hello my friend, is not a problem, maybe by the time it could be for me. my English is technical I can read and to understand. but it can be difficult to follow a quick conversation.

Our meetings in Spanish talk of our day to day with NethServer and what future we want with it.

One solution that I saw tentative to get into a meeting NethServer would be Skype Translator, but is used in windows.
