Have done two installs and got a few very minor things on both. Otherwise the distro is fantastic, I have tried them all at one time or another and this is by far the easiest and most hassle free to deal with, great work to those who built it.
I found that after the install under System Admin - Networking the gateway address I entered during the install did not show up and nether did the Interface Mac address.
Under Time Zone the Time Zone I entered (St. Kitts) did not show up, it showed Anguilla - most likely that is the first one in the list for the Americas but is the same Time Zone as me so had not adverse effects.
When loading the Dahdi module from the extended repository I got a simlink error. Cured by renaming the .conf file and reloading.
Loaded fop2 and it hangs when called from the freepbx button but runs OK when called direct to the url from the browser.
I like to have phpMyadmin and Webmin available on my boxes. Webmin was simple yum install Webmin and it was done. I found phpMyAdmin had in fact been installed but did not work. It was pretty simple to sort out and get running, if anyone is interested will be happy to share my notes.
I have added a couple of links to the Freepbx/Schmooze starter screen for phpMyAdmin and Webmin and a bit of code to display IP address and hostname on that screeen to identify the system when you have several different systems running.
Am now pushing on with testing all functionality, so far so good, everything working as it should. Again congratulations on an excellent job!
Sorry for the confusion, what I did is setup the static IP address and its associated gateway address during the install and was thinking the gateway (and MAC addresses of the interface) should show up in Sys Admin. So you are saying that I am seeing the right thing?
Yes because Linux is not reporting a gateway in the config file for the network which means we wont report showing it. Same with the MAC. Centos does not define the MAC in the network config files by default if there is only one Nic at the time of install.
ifconfig reports mac address, ip address and net mask as expected - does not report gateway - routes -n does report the expected gateway.
During the install I set the Time Zone to Americas St. Kitts which is on Atlantic Time. When finished and I looked in the System Admin Module it showed the Time Zone as Anguilla. A cat /etc/sysconfig/clock showed Time Zone as Americas/St. Kitts. It appears the sys admin module had not picked up the Time Zone I had set.
Here are the notes I made to get phpMyAdmin running:
Nano /etc/httpd/conf.d/phpmyadmin.conf and comment out following lines with a leading #:
In sysadmin it reads the gateway address from the ifconfig-ethx interface so whatever centos is reporting there is what we display. What does the interface in centos show as the gateway.
The timezone thing I am confused on. Does the linux CLI show a different time zone than what the timezone GUI in sysadmin show or are they the same.
The issue with DAHDI is a problem with that module and why it is not included by default. This is a module that has lots of issues with it but it is not built or support by the FreePBX team for this reason.
Yes we have webmin in the yum but not installed by default as most people look at webmin as a major security issue and allows users who do know know what they are doing way to much control of things to break things.
What did you change to get phpMyadmin working as I will add those changes into toe distro this week.
I am seeing the same error in regards to Gateway, I setup the system at my office an used DHCP on install, now that I have taken the server to customer site I need to change to a static address, I see in system admin I can set IP address, Subnet mask and DNS, but if you only read gateway settings and can not change it here were is this done. I tried netconfig which is what i used on other distro’s but it doesn’t work, my /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 shows no Gateway, can I add simply add GATEWAY=xxxxxxx here. What is the proper procedure.
