NethServer v7-alpha2



I ran into this last time, is anyone interested in looking at this flow and tell me what I’m doing wrong?
This is basically what I ended up doing with the minimal iso last time but this time it’s not working. I’m obviously missing something.

:open_mouth: It’s rather puzzling, I can’t reproduce that “Cannot open: …nethserver-release-7-0.1.11.g66e6835.ns7.noarch.rpm. Skipping.”

Moreover wget downloads the RPM, so I suppose your network works properly.

I’d try “localinstall” from the downloaded RPM in /tmp, like

yum localinstall /tmp/nethserver-release-7-0.1.11.g66e6835.ns7.noarch.rpm


That’s it.


All I can say is… pretty!

You can now start/stop/restart services from the web interface. What do you think @Ctek? :smile:

Pretty nice integrated graphs. @Jim :smiley:

Edit: Also, graphs are directly accessible from port 980, you don’t need anymore to forward port 80.

What do you think about good graphs monitoring tool?
Start/stop services by web interface

Yeahh! Can we close these discussions? :+1:


This day is a really good day :tropical_drink:
Someone can mark this date in the NethServer history

Don’t close these discussions… We must celebrate :laughing:

Interesting , really interesting @giacomo, I searched recently how to embed a page on port 80 into the server-manager, I have now a solution to my issue…fine :smile:

This can bring idea for phpMyAdmin by example


Yes, a well polished interface mean a good feeling, a impressive good experience for the end user.

It’s really important, to spread the world

(Bogdan Costin) #81

Really like it! Thanx guys!
This “small” features are improving our life every day :smile:

(Giacomo Sanchietti) #82

In this case CGP is running on port 80 but it’s only accessible from localhost, the server-manager uses a simple proxy pass (yet I lost half an hour to make it work, than @filippo_carletti came to rescue me :smiley:).


upgrading from
nethserver-base-2.9.5-1.48.ga72985b or later
give me " invalid credentials" when accessing from webUI with root user, no probs from console… i’ll do some other test in the afternoon…

(Giacomo Sanchietti) #84

Quick solution:

rm -f /etc/sudoers
yum reinstall sudo


I just want to hilight on thing:

In this screenshot, I see in the Left menu Status/Applications :confused:

Can you put this “applications” in the Administration menu? And perhaps rename it in “tools”, because these tools are for administrate the server…
The “status” menu is for … Status :smile:

(Giacomo Sanchietti) #86

Sounds good to me. Any other thought? (/cc @filippo_carletti @davidep)

I not agree on this, since the “Applications” page contains also link to end-user web applications like Roundcube.
In fact, all listed applications are web applications :wink:

Some time ago, @edoardo_spadoni, @Stll0 and @nethcman did a good work on refactoring Lightsquid interface.
Now, we decided to release this part to the Community: the code is now merged into main nethserver-lightsquid repository.
Also Lightsquid has been integrated insidet the Server Manager:

As a side note, I would like to point out that these applications run inside the default httpd instance with unprivileged user.
Even if it is possible to run Lightsquid, CGP, etc inside the httpd-admin apache instance, this is not a good practice since httpd-admin runs with a more privileged user.

(Giacomo Sanchietti) #89

The last application integrated is Samba Audit.

Please note the new “Report” section, also “Applications” have been moved under “Administration” section.

Next step lestencrypt :smile: while Davide and Filippo are finishing up the L2TP service.
After, alpha 2 release should be ready.


wow cool, tnx dev team! a lot of good news…
but this is a side effects of belgian beers? or was the chocolate or what? just to know :slight_smile:

(Giacomo Sanchietti) #91

Beer, of course! Always beer! :wink:



I got one difficulty to setup my NS& environment as explain in the wiki don’t exist (anymore) !!!

Edit: Wiki edited to hilight the nethserver-mock package name can change :wink:

Edit2: One more beta-tester :smile:
