Upcoming WebTop release 5.1.5

The @webtop_team did a lot of work to address all requests and improve the current WebTop version.

We need your help to test and refine WebTop before final release 5.1.5, but we already achieved few goals.


While official WebTop documentation is on its way, NethServer manual has been improved and now includes all howtos written by @lucag, also many other parts have been ported and translated from the Enterprise knowledge base. Please take a look at: http://docs.nethserver.org/en/v7/webtop5.html

I just want to pointing out some relevant parts:

In the next few days, the team will work also on documenting:

  • how to use admin access for configuring users
  • how to share calendars, contacts and even whole mail accounts
  • how to use mail archive
  • importing from SOGo
  • various tips and tricks


Many bugs have been fixed, see upstream changelog, including the bug on admin password reported by @Christopher_Suttles and @pike on Webtop5, cannot change admin password

Also 2FA problem reported by @Max_Franco (Two factor security authentication error) should be fixed.
If some of the reported bugs are still present, feel free to bring on the discussion.

Also WebTop should now support upload limit file size in various scenarios.
I will let @gabriele_bulfon and @matteo.albinola explain how to use and configure such limits.

In the meanwhile, WebTop developers are also working to include improved Spanish translations. (Edit: Spanish and German translation should be ready inside the new RPM)

The NethServer reference issue is: https://github.com/NethServer/dev/issues/5414

How to test

You can test all modifications straight from autobuild repository.

On a clean machine:

yum install http://packages.nethserver.org/nethserver/7.4.1708/autobuild/x86_64/Packages/webtop5-1.1.6-1.8.pr6.g84eddc4.ns7.noarch.rpm nethserver-webtop5

To upgrade an existing installation:

yum install http://packages.nethserver.org/nethserver/7.4.1708/autobuild/x86_64/Packages/webtop5-1.1.6-1.8.pr6.g84eddc4.ns7.noarch.rpm
signal-event nethserver-webtop5-update

See https://github.com/NethServer/webtop5/pull/6 for more info


Great work! :clap: I tested on 2 NethServers and update worked without problems. Admin password change works now as expected. Importing Contacts and Birthday events from Google worked so far!


Ready to be tested:

Please @Christopher_Suttles @pike @Max_Franco, join the effort! :wink:

Works for me on a clean install – reported it on github as well.


Thank you! I really appreciate it! :wink:

I would like to, but my installation, as already wrote…

Therefore, if i will be able to arrange another test installation, i will surely test the update.

Installs fine, cannot use it on firefox though, gui seems to be broken.

Edit: Chrome works as expected

My Firefox 58.0 64 bit on Windows 10 is working fine. Do you have some blocking add ons installed?

Thank you for your testing, WebTop 5.1.5 has been released!

And the documentation is improving quickly: http://docs.nethserver.org/en/v7/webtop5.html :wink:
