The testing for Plex on ClearOS is just me for the moment...I monitor and pull down the new releases Plex (not me) build for CentOS 6 and install them on my home server...if the kids haven't yelled at me in 48 hours as to why they can't watch 'that caveman movie', it's considered gold and I upload it to our mirrors.
Two take-aways from that...
I didn't have (or don't recall having) to restart my Plex server.
To my knowledge, Plex doesn't publish the source RPM, so there's nothing I can do on that front.
Best thing I can think of for you to do is add plexmediaserver to your service watch file:
I'd suggest trying to telnet to port 12340 on the external interface on the ClearOS box itself. That will tell you whether Apache is listening on the external interface on that port. If you can connect, start looking more closely at your port forwards etc...but if it fails, start looking at your appache config.
Name of the game is narrowing down the problem to the smallest possible set of circumstances.
I have ClearOS Pro trial and Zarafa Small Business trial and when i asked for a key i was told that i would also need to upgrade my version of zarafa.
I have run
yum --enablerepo=zarafa-testing upgrade zarafa
and all has gone smooth.
Problem is now that when i have entered the license key i got from Zarafa i noticed that the server was stopped.
When trying to start the server i get a message telling me "command execution failed"
Apparently there is another new version being setup today (tonight my time), should i just wait for that and update again?
Where can i go to find logs relevant to that error.
I have just set up new 6.5 clearos box and i am trying to join a win7 32bit pc to domain.
I keep getting an error, but when i look back in the windows networking tab i see the pc name in there.
PC still not joined.
On reboot i just tried adding it back again and now it works ...
I will try to join another pc tomorrow as getting a bit late here now.
Thanks for the response. I was looking to use ClearOS Pro and Zarafa Small Business anyway so this will allow seamless integration with Outlook from what i have read.
I am unsure of the Virtual Domains page.
Is it saying that I can receive for whatever domains I have coming in but I cannot send email as another domain?
Currently what I do is setup 2 users.
Let's say user is named Bob Smith
username = bsmith password = password email address = firstname.lastname@example.org (this is his primary account and what he logs into Windows with)
username = bobsmith password = password email address = email@example.com
You can see that the username is different so this makes AD happy.
In Outlook you can add multiple exchange accounts so i setup Outlook to use bsmith and then add user's mailbox for bobsmith and allow to SEND AS bobsmith. Then in From field I choose bobsmith and email leaves as firstname.lastname@example.org.
Does this make sense and can this be done?
Thanks again in advance.
I still would like to know how to disable or block root account for security reasons.. if thats possible.
That might be a good feature to add someday. In the mean time, if you look at/hack the file /usr/clearos/apps/base/libraries/Authorization.php, you'll see a line:
if ($username === 'root')
Change it to...you guessed it:
if ($username === 'root')
I've never seen an update on this class for a while, so your hack should be safe for a while...however, know that any update that comes down from an update that changes this file would wipe out your edits. Might be worth chattr the file to make it ReadOnly.
I just PM'd you...let's take this out of the public and try and resolve quickly, then post our finding back here for everyone. Of course, we're very interested in making sure there's no roadblocks to any part of the wizard. Maybe you've encountered something I haven't seen before...
And XXXX is your system's unique hostkey, obtained by running:
cat /etc/suvad.conf |grep hostkey
If that works, your system will be registered on the ClearCenter side...to make your box aware of it, run:
But really, this is just to find out if the curl command works from CLI and it points to something in the ClearOS framework, of it's something to do with the webservice call which might show up better using curl directly.
