  • To be honest Nick I can not remember either. It has been years since I have done my SOGo setup, but you are right the proper configuration would be: MailFieldNames = (clearMailAliases,mail).

    I recall I had an issue with ClearOS aliases, my mail account name is never used to transmit emails, I only use aliases. Something clashed with the way ClearOS had configure the LDAP structure and how an LDAP structure was interpreted by SOGo. I think I wanted to do this: MailFieldNames = (clearMailAliases), but was not possible with the ClearOS structure and I ended up adding a field to the ClearOS LDAP structure for it to work.

    Can not really check this right now, I am on vacation and If my wife caught me working... you know what I mean. But I will come back with more on this issue.

  • Thanks Tony for the update on some of SOGo features i.e. SOGoMailAuxiliaryUserAccountsEnabled Installing SOGo 2.0.5 on ClearOS 6.4.0. I can see that you have moved on to SOGo 3. Seeing that you seem to like it over 2, I will give it a try ... but last time I looked at it, I did not warm up to it.

    I have had to learn first how to put a new ClearOS 7.3 together, I just recently did in an ESXI env. That include getting use to the CentOS world again, last time I played with those babies was in the good old ClarkConnect days. The good part is that my mail data is on a different server and I can focus on the front end first. I just finished getting Squirrelmail going, still my favorite for searching and speed but now the speed is lees of an issue, I always though I lived in the country but now not so sure anymore since we recently had fiber installed in our neighborhood.

    Anyways thanks again for the instructions above, hopefully I can give it a try. I do have a question about the ClearOS LDAP structure for: Mail Aliases, the structure that ClearOS 6.x adopted at the time was a master detail relationship and that did not fit very well with SOGo. I remember modifying the ClearOS LDAP structure to fit SOGo world any experience with this topic?

  • Hello Nick

    I am aware of that feature, but I am not grasping why you are showing me this?

    Nick maybe you had another approach in mind? I use SSH as a tunnel to run RDC sessions. The SSH service is configured with two access approaches:
    The WAN connections disallows root access and only one user is allowed to connect via an ssa rsa key.
    The LAN connections allows root and users access via password and/or ssa rsa key.



    I think Webconfig is not very happy with me having two 'PermitRootLogin' in the configuration file.

  • Modifing the ssh configuration file breaks the web page

    I broke the SSh Server Webconfig browser page after modifying the ssh configuration file i.e.Ooooops: Configuration file parse error occurred.

    I understand that it can be difficult to parse a configuration file that has been modified externally and the risk of doing so can be unforeseen.I will let the powers at be decide if this is a bug or not. Here is the modified culprit code:



    The use of 'PermitRootLogin' in a block probably conflicts with the one that is currently set.

    Another issue with the Webconfig page: I added an additional port to the configuration, the web page shows only the last port that was configured from the configuration file. That also would probably not do well during a browser page update? I did not try...

  • I think I found the problem.

    During the manual partitioning, I deleted the current partitions and created new ones. All seem correct as you can see in the following picture ClearOS Incorrect Partitioning.jpg, it created a new installation called: ClearOS Linux 7.3.0 for x86_64 but that does not work, it seems to create a server missing some if not all of ClearOS modifications.

    What I did on my xxx attempt, same as above deleted all the current partitions. But instead I created the New ClearOS 7.3.0.1 80516 Installation by: 'Click here to create them automatically', deleted and modified the new default partitions and that created the correct partition scheme see the included: ClearOS Partitioning.jpg

  • Configuration of Partition during install breaks ClearOS 7

    My installations are done on a ESXI platform, I have attempted to install ClearOS 7.3 with my standard partition scheme. On reboot I get a console (white screen) and can not get webconfig started from the browser. The installation works when I do not define my own partitions.

    I notice that the /etc/default/grub configuration is slightly different, though not a critical change:

    Custom Partition grub conf:


    Default Partition grub conf:


    Custom File System:


    Instead of the Default File System:



    I can not find anything in the logs that indicates a problem, again I might not have noticed it. The concern is that if the /etc/default/grub configuration did get build properly, there might be something else? and I am at a lost on what that might be.

  • I originally installed ClearOS 7.1 for a test run and had to leave the testing project for a period of time. I came back recently and updated to 7.3, ran into the same issue as Matthew (B.T.W. thank you for the solution).

    Here is my configuration file: /usr/clearos/apps/base/deploy/servicewatch showing the deamon to be monitored:

    ClearCenter already has a nice backup/store feature for email, A nice feature would be to be able to forward email to a different port.
