Peter Baldwin replied to the topic Re:Chaining Squid and DansGuardian and Privoxy for transparent ad blocking? in the forums.
Hi Andy,

I haven't heard the word "privoxy" in a long time. We actually had Privoxy running in ClarkConnect 3.x. It was replaced by Adzapper in 4.x which in turn was dropped in ClearOS 6. The various web browser plugins that you mentioned became popular and the desire for the Adzapper feature dissipated.

If you can dig up an old ClarkConnect 3.2 ISO, you can take a peak at the implementation.

There wasn't until you pointed it out! I added the request in the tracker:

It's one of those things that will get added on the next Snort / IDS review (which is overdue).

Hi Marc,

ClearOS doesn't have any apps that can be used for creating content -- those apps are coming with Tiki, Wordpress, etc., but have not yet arrived. I'm ready to dogfood/bootstrap getting ElasticSearch running on ClearOS, but the aforementioned apps need to be delivered first

Even the RHEL 7 beta is using 5.4 which is NOT good news (although that could change closer to release.)

It's still PHP 5.4 in the RHEL7 Release Candidate too.

Peter Baldwin replied to the topic Re:Samba4 - No package app-samba-directory available in the forums.
Hi Ryan,

I just added a note in the Samba Directory alpha1/beta1 release notes -- the test versions are no longer available. Sorry for the confusion.

The next Samba Directory beta will be available in ClearOS 7. There has always been a big gotcha with Samba 4 on the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 Linux variants: the underlying Kerberos implementation is incompatible. It looks like this library issue has been resolved in version 7, so all focus for Samba 4 has shifted to ClearOS 7.

I believe Pete had to pull that package from the repos recently because another package, if installed (app-pptpd?) was pulling in Samba4 as a dependency. Maybe he can help and/or let you know what it might become available...or if you're interested in helping beta test, feel free to send a message to developer at clearfoundation dot com.

Hi all,

I don't have any post-mortem details of the cluster outage that happened on the weekend, but the "mirror.clearfoundation.com" issue is now resolved. This is what I do know:

When the ClearFoundation mirror system does not have an updated list of available mirrors (which should never happen?), the system falls back to a single mirror.clearfoundation.com mirror instead a list of mirrors like mirror3-toronto, mirror2-dc, etc. That single fallback hostname was not working properly, hence all the issues.

The update for the Community Edition was pushed out late last night (April 8, EST) and should be on all the mirrors by now.

Peter Baldwin replied to the topic Re: New OpenSSL critical security vulnerability, need to upgrade... in the forums.
Hello all,

An update will be available to ClearOS Professional in just a few minutes. I would expect the Community Edition to get the update in the next 12 to 48 hours. Why the difference? There are two sets of repositories:

- ClearCenter repositories for paid apps and Professional Edition extras
- ClearFoundation repositories for the base operating system

The ClearCenter repositories and mirrors have a quick turnaround time, while the much more sophisticated/complicated ClearFoundation build system, repos and mirrors have a longer turnaround time. I'm not as familiar with the ClearFoundation systems, so I don't know exactly when the update will appear.

PS - feel free to use the workaround suggested by Eric!

Ben Chambers replied to the topic Re:Can I add custom services to the Services Manager addon? in the forums.
You need to drop a 'configlet' into:


The name of the file *must* be the name of the init script with .php extension. For example, rsyslog.php.

Here's an example of one so you can use it as a template to create your own. The only difference I'd suggest is that you hardcode the title since the base language template will get stomped on with updates. Eg.

'title' => 'My Friendly Service Name',
