    - Introductions.
    Meeting was attended by Nick Howitt, Marcel Van Leeuwen and Michael Proper

    - Review recent progress
    Nextcloud 18 was released this week.
    The prior week's releases to Community went to Business and were briefly discussed.
    There is an update to app-firewall available. It stops lots of FORWARD rules being created for all LAN interfaces when you add a port forward; It removes some redundant rules for ICMP from 1-to-1 NAT and changes the standard services for FTP and FTPS from creating two rules per service to just creating one with a port range.
    There is an update for syswatch available which was initiated by Todd Lewis and has been tweaked by Peter and myself.
    The files for ClearOS 7.8 are being prepared.
    - app-dhcp is done and can be released now
    - app-network-map is done and can be released now
    - initscripts is built and may be able to be released now
    - app-base and clearos-release are in progress (they should now be complete). Now they require the repos.
    - The main blocker is getting the repos into place, but obviously testing has to be done.

    - Merge Request Status
    app-attack-detector - waiting further input from Josue Yenga. I am waiting feedback to see if this will ever be completed.

    - Bug Report Status
    Team Canada to fix #40. Peter said he would be getting a bit more time to work on the app.

    Domoticz have now been updated to 2020.2.
    For the next couple of weeks it will be sitting in contribs-testing for people to try it out before it will be released. Please download and test it and report back in this thread if you were successful or had any problems.

    To install (or update your existing testinstallation) do this from the ClearOS machine commandline:


    /Fred

    Hi Fred,

    The update went smootly and until now no problems
    It installed also some dependency packackages



    The devices which i needed to reconnect after the upgrade to 2020.1 are now still alive and working after the upgrade to 2020.2.


    Good job and thanks again

    The suggestion of a HP Microserver is too power hungry/noisy than I want. I've looked at intel NUC and various SFF but I'm also want to house 2 x storage drives and most of the SFF computers I have found have room for a single drive only.... or many have Apollo Lake CPU's... which appeared (to me) to be a deal breaker in the past. I'm hoping to find a mITX fanless board < 15W power with dual LAN.


    Why are you saying a HP microserver is noisy and consumes too much ?
    I’m running on a HP Gen8 Microserver with a E3-1220v2 processor and with several SATA drives in it. The server is very quit and the fan is most of the time 7-10% so also not making any noise. Running a lot of applications on it and consuming around 20-25w
    So if you will use SSD instead of SATA this will save a few watts
    Dual LAN and an ILo port, so perfect as a remote server

    Patrick de Brabander likes the reply for the discussion, Re: Domoticz version 2020.1

    Upstream Domoticz have now released 2020.2 as a "Stable HotFix". Turns out that it is not just a minor adjustment to 2020.1. In the process a number of modules have now been moved outside the software package itself. In principle what has been done is a good thing, but it is (again) a major change that requires quite a bit of adjustment to make it work on ClearOS.

    After a few days trouble shooting I think got it working now. I have just updated a local machine that I have and I will run domoticz on it a few days to check that it is stable. If it works OK, then I will try to build it in the ClearOS build system and put it in contribs-testing for a couple of weeks before releasing it.

    - Introductions.
    Meeting was attended by Nick Howitt and Patrick de Brabander

    - Review recent progress
    app-domoticz - Patrick reports successful testing of the update and only had to reset 2 of about 36 sensors.
    app-samba-common - was updated to delete files from .trash > 60 days old. We also looked at the possibility of stopping temporary files from being kept in the recycle bin.
    app-nextcloud - there is an update for NC18 but Tyler wants to tweak it to get rid of a couple of issues.
    app-proxy - I said I wanted to add a configurable parameter to be able to run the proxy cacheless. This is advisable for people with a fast internet connection and/of slow disks. Currently it is a manual tweak described in the app documentation but I believe it should be in the Webconfig.

    - Merge Request Status
    app-attack-detector - waiting further input from Josue Yenga. I am waiting feedback to see if this will ever be completed.
    syswatch - submitted by Todd Lewis. It is being reviewed by Peter.

    - Bug Report Status
    Team Canada to fix #40 and #21. Peter said he would be getting a bit more time to work on the app.

    Hi,
    Domoticz 2020.1-2 and libopenzwave-1.6.1074-1 are now available for testing in repo contribs-testing (for ClearOS 7). This is as earlier stated a major upgrade, with a slightly new database format etc and using the whole new Z-wave library if you have any Zwave devices.

    Once you have upgraded domoticz will rebuild its database, so it is not possible to roll back without loosing all your settings unless you have made a backup first. There is a backup functioni inside Domoticz under the settings menu. (The files are found in /var/domoticz ). When installing Domoticz 2020.1-2 it will as an extra safety measure make an backup of the old database and put it under a special folder under /var/domoticz.

    I have tested it on a local machine for more than a week without any problems, but I only have a small Zwave plus network (with UZB1 as a controller) and using blocky as script language.

    To upgrade do this:

    1. Backup your Domoticz database: (Go to "Setup" -> "Settings" -> "Backup/Restore" inside the Domoticz web interface
    2. At the command line, logged in as root type:


    Please report in this thread if the new version seems to work OK or if you are facing issues with it.

    /Fred


    Hello Fred,
    Thanks for the update.

    I did not run (yet) in to serious problems.
    2 Nodon controllers needed be re-connect to Domoticz, but other z-wave devices still were functional without any issues.
    My scripts (both Blocky and DzVents) are still working.
    After re-adding the 2 Nodon controller, they were operating again. Needed just to change my Blocky script, because the idx was changed due to the re-adding

    thanks Patrick. For the while, I've my website.poweredbyclear.com defined in the 'parameter' Server Name but I've no website defined. Should I create one ?


    Yep.
    Setup a default website and choose the letsencrypt as your Digital Certificate

    You do not need to create a website if you don;t need one ;)

  • Arnaud Forster wrote:

    ok, thanks, I'lll but ... to be sure .. because I've several options when creating my defaut website.

    Choosing let's encrypt as default certificate is fine but for the other options ... is it important or can deactivate all of them ?

    I'd like something as 'closed' as possible

    You can set the most on "Disabled"
    I would first try if it is working and then change some settings.
