Ben Chambers replied to the topic Re:Is the .htaccess file running ? mod_rewrite directive issues in the forums.
If I recall correctly from helping someone this week with a similar issue, it is the '-FollowSymLink' that is causing you grief.

In flexshare, set "FollowSymLinks" to enabled and try again.

FYI - your /var/log/httpd/access_log would have pointed you in the right direction.

Ben Chambers replied to the topic Re:Kernel Panic after automatic update in the forums.

By any chance are you on HP hardware with either Intel or Realtek PCI NICs?

We've had two reports in the last two weeks about kernel panics on this hardware (I'll see if I can get specific models).

What I do know:

2.6.32-358.23.2.v6 is OK
2.6.32-431.23.3.v6 is exhibiting kernel panics
2.6.32-504.8.1.v6 - I don't have any information at this point in time

Hi Jared,

Certainly does look interesting...Marc actually referenced this in a feature tracker...see here.

Ben Chambers replied to the topic Re: System won't update in the forums.
In cases like this, I'd recommend one of the following:

1. Upgrade broken dependencies first, then full update. In your case:


yum --enablerepo=clearos-core,clearos-contribs upgrade hal* libvirt*

Followed by:

yum upgrade

2. Upgrade using --skip-broken


yum --skip-broken upgrade

Though, #2 won't won't solve your issue going forward until you do something (upgrade, remove packages etc.).

Hi David,

Message received!

There's a lot of things we could have done better, and communication as you've mentioned, is so critical to those on the receiving end.

We didn't actively push out any notifications through the myriad of social tools available today. Our bad for keeping you guys in the dark.

6.6 was a strange release in that it overlapped with the v7 beta and resources being allocated for the new 'unified website' for ClearOS. Not an excuse...just a perfect storm.

The two systems I've logged into both had ldap folder file permissions issue...

 ls -l /var/lib/ldap

If you see files in their owned by 'root', your directory is not going to be happy.

chown -R ldap:ldap /var/lib/ldap
service slapd restart

We'll investigate why this happened on upgrade to 6.6.

We'll also look into the interface library issue that was pointed out...not sure how severe that is.

Ben Chambers replied to the topic Re:Web server module gives error message in the forums.
And this is version 6 ? I'm stumped.


touch /tmp/webconfig.debug

Then try and re-activate the Flexshares. That will give you a debug file in /tmp/webconfig.log. Look for some exceptions/errors and include the trace so we can narrow it down.

Make sure to delete /tmp/webconfig.debug when you're done.

Ben Chambers replied to the topic Re:change number of displayed rules permanently - custom rules in the forums.
I could have sworn we had a feature tracker for a similar request...can't find it. Feel free to add it.

For a temp hack, edit:


and search for:

\"iDisplayLength\": $default_rows,

and replace with

\"iDisplayLength\": -1,
