Super annoying! We just have to hang in there for a few more weeks until the web site upgrade/refresh. Hopefully the new forums version will slow them down.

Marc Laporte replied to the topic Re: COS 6.5 community php upgrade from 5.3.3 in the forums.

ClearOS does appear to have PHP 5.3.3

Indeed, as you write:
'php -v' and ./tiki-check.php both report: PHP 5.3.3

However, it's a little more complicated than that.

Check on you instance:

You will see recent updates. And there was one for PHP:
Aug 21 01:34:36 Updated php-mysql-5.3.3-27.el6_5.1.x86_64
Aug 21 01:34:40 Updated php-mbstring-5.3.3-27.el6_5.1.x86_64
Aug 21 01:34:41 Updated php-gd-5.3.3-27.el6_5.1.x86_64
Aug 21 01:34:41 Updated php-soap-5.3.3-27.el6_5.1.x86_64
Aug 21 01:34:42 Updated php-xml-5.3.3-27.el6_5.1.x86_64
Aug 21 01:34:43 Updated php-ldap-5.3.3-27.el6_5.1.x86_64
Aug 21 01:34:44 Updated php-process-5.3.3-27.el6_5.1.x86_64

So what is php-5.3.3-27.el6_5.1.x86_64.rpm ?
It's a patch to resolve: rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2014-1012.html

It's explained here: access.redhat.com/security/updates/backporting

Hi Joseph,

This is what you are looking for:

About XMPP:

The link Dave posted above seems to chopped off by the forum software, so try this one instead:

We have been using Prosody on ClearOS for tikisuite.org for quite a while now and it works well. Here is a good recap of where we are, and where we are headed:

Before settling on Prosody, I had experimented with eJabberd. It's documented here:

However, going forward, all my focus is on Prosody.

Best regards,

Marc Laporte replied to the topic Re: How to authenticate TiKi with Ldap? in the forums.

ClearOS 6.6 Beta 1 installs Tiki 12.0, but Tiki 12.0 has a bug that prevents LDAP from working: dev.tiki.org/item4816

6.6.0 Beta 2 resolves two Tiki-related issues:
* Tiki 12.2 on new installs
** tracker.clearfoundation.com/view.php?id=1716
* Make sure httpd.conf is not overriding the settings for /var/www/html
** tracker.clearfoundation.com/view.php?id=1661

Tim / Peter / all: How can we get 6.6.0 Beta 2 before it's released?

If you manually install Tiki 12.2 on ClearOS 6.x, if all you need is authentication:
* tiki-admin.php?page=login -> General preferences -> Authentication Method: Tiki and LDAP
* tiki-admin.php?page=login -> LDAP ->check "Create user if not in Tiki"
All the other default settings don't need to be changed.

If you want email, country and real name to sync, you need to use the settings in the screenshot here:
For group sync, we haven't solved it yet, but I'll update that page when we do.

Best regards,

1) all references to clarkpoint.com servers in the ClearOS whitelist config file return as unresolvable.
Those are old DNS names that should be deleted from the whitelist. It's a non-fatal error, but we'll clean those up. Here's the tracker entry.

When Snortsam attempts to release the IPs after a day of blocking it is failing ,and the blocked IPs remain blocked - so the IPtables block list is just growing longer by the day, if I understand correctly.
Hmmm. What does the output from following command look like:

iptables -L INPUT -n -v

Ben Chambers replied to the topic Re:Greatest backup I ever saw in the forums.
Hi Foye,

Yes...Nitix has/had some cool features and a *very* loyal user-base. I hear the sentiment you expressed in your post quite often since we continue to get quite a few Nitix users coming over to ClearOS after IBM discontinued the product.

I've not come across any source code (nevermind compatible licenses) that would allow us to take bits of what the Nitix devel team. IBM's not SCO by any stretch...maybe some day, something will be released to the open-source community at large.

Ben Chambers replied to the topic Re:Static IPsec VPN Install in the forums.
Hi guys,

The reason you're seeing this (and some are not) is because you're on a ClearOS Professional Evaluation. Allowing users to evaluate subscription services is easy (we turn them off at the end of the eval). Evaluations to one-time install software like Static IPSec VPN, isn't so fun...it requires considerable development which we've not chosen to embark on to protect code, uninstall software etc. Nothing that benefits the end user or us, really.

I only just found out about a month ago that during Professional evals, paid one-time apps weren't displayed in Marketplace...I thought they were displayed but listed as 'not-available'. This is fixed in version 7, and I think I'll back port the minor change required to have the same thing in 6 to avoid this situation.

In the meantime, if you want to install the paid-version of Static IPSec, you have two choices...Upgrade your Pro license from evaluation to full subscription via the portal here or, if you're not ready to commit to a Pro license, open a support ticket here and I'll pick it up and manually add an IPSec license for you (along with a placeholder invoice)...if you continue on with it, the invoice will become due...if you don't, we'll trust you un-install the app and I'll cancel the invoice.

Somewhat ironically, this is never an issue on the Community Edition since there's no such thing as an eval.

Ben Chambers created a new topic DropboxCLI Upgrade - Testers Needed in the forums.
If you've been using the Dropbox client on ClearOS, you may have received an email from Dropbox letting you know to upgrade ASAP as they are deprecating services that the version of ClearOS has been using for the last 18 months. Timeline...next week!


I've built an upgrade package suitable for ClearOS 6 based on Dropbox version 2.10.28. It requires a couple of minor changes to the ClearOS libraries too.

If anyone wants to help test, it would be appreciated since we have such a short time before I need to push this out to the updates repo.

If you are interested in doing some testing, please run:


yum -y --enablerepo=clearos-test upgrade app-dropbox
service dropbox restart

to upgrade.to the latest version of Dropbox. Report any errors/issues here.

Edit the file:


You'll see a line:


define("ENABLED_LANGUAGES", "de_DE;en_EN;en_US;fr_FR;he_IL;it_IT;nl_NL;ru_RU;zh_CN");

Change it to:


define("ENABLED_LANGUAGES", "de_DE;en_EN;en_US;fr_FR;he_IL;it_IT;nl_NL;ru_RU;zh_CN;es_ES");

Ben Chambers replied to the topic Re: Bare Metal Backup/Restore app new in marketplace? in the forums.
Hi Guys,

Yes...pretty new app there (couple of weeks old) that didn't get a post here or front page on CF website, but should have.

Bare Metal Backup/Restore is a new app that was written by a great organization and long time customer of ClearCenter's, MercyCorps.

Their team wrote the app for use at local ClearOS deployments for their distributed network of IT admins in various geographic locations where they are deployed. They chose to share the app with the community so you have them to thank (perhaps with a donation...hint hint, wink wink.

Anyways, I screwed upI screwed up deploying it in the Marketplace for the first week of it's launch, but that was corrected just over a week ago.

I just tried installing it from Marketplace...worked fine for me. Keep in mind, if you're installing from command line, you'll need to add the contribs repo:

[code]yum --enablerepo=clearo-contribs install app-bmbackup[/code[

Installing from Marketplace will enable the contribs repo automatically.
