This is causing the failure NethServer We can fix by replacing the file.

global-usage Fixed momentary

This is the route: /var/squidGuard/blacklists

If you want you use Filezilla with sftp link to easily access routes NethServer and do file transfers

Another workaround is to set the server-manager interface to English.

Well who wants to have the interface in English with no problem, however, and report them to Shalla Secure Services (info at for verification and correction global_usage.

I recommend using: Université Toulouse (Free) @hgeorge123

Until the team can correct Shalla global_usage

Regards :coffee:

  Just tested this on our systems. The content of the file showed fine in
  cyrillic symbols. I don't know if this helps, but we have the following
  entries in our .vimrc:

set enc=utf-8
set fileencoding=utf-8
set fileencodings=utf8

  Kind Regards,

  Christine Kronberg.

if I open the file with an editor using UTF-8 is displayed normal json.php have been reviewing the file and do not see anything strange.

NethServer uses default “virc not vimrc”


I’m trying to blacklist tolouse University and works perfect thanks

@davidep @giacomo the Package nethserver-lang-es.noarch when installing does not create the folder “es” in /usr/share/nethesis/NethServer/Language and in /usr/share/nethesis/Nethgui/Language

I reviewed everything and is perfect in other languages and have these folders are created

is this a bug in the language pack?

Spanish and Italian do an exception with installation paths; please look under




The “Override” namespace was introduced with language packs to avoid RPM file conflicts with already existing translations.

Maybe /var/log/messages or /var/log/httpd-admin/error_log give further infos, such as file and line that generated the error.

@davidep any chance to fix this at framework level? Or we need to put a workaround inside the blacklist loader?

I bet it’s a badly UTF-8 encoded string from a language catalog, or other source file. Sadly the error message from json_encode() does not help.
