  • I have learned from the past, that when leaving Automatic Updates enabled, changes can get pushed that rewrite config files to default and/or push new kernel versions and drivers that have negative effects to my server, so I leave Automatic Updates disabled in the Webconfig. Then I check for updates from the command line, so that I can see what packages are going to be updated. If I know it might have negative effects on my server, I won't do the update or I'll exclude certain packages when I do the update, if I'm certain they aren't part of the dependencies of the other packages being updated.

    I think it would be awesome if the devs would allow for an echo feature in the Webconfig, so we could see what yum is telling us as we're doing the updates. Then also provide a yes or no response to the current updates. Then at the least, we could go to the command prompt and exclude packages in the update. Better yet, allow check boxes to pick what updates we want to allow.

  • I guess where I was going with my comment was, I don’t use Kopano much at all, so I’m thinking with one user my openldap log wouldn’t be too big and overly populated with non-indexed Kopano dB attributes. However, maybe even with 4 users, if those 4 users use Kopano a lot, then perhaps the openldap log would be large in size with non-indexed messages.

  • My loglevel is set for 256 in /etc/openldap/slapd.conf. My log size has yet to be over 10M (knock on wood, since I just updated ClearOS Business to 7.6.0).

    Related to debug levels...this from openldap.org

    What's your loglevel set to?

    Perhaps your log size is so great because you use Kopano a lot and each time you log in, openldap has to query its entire database because some associated kopano attributes aren't indexed in openldap. Indexed attributes make the search process faster and I'm supposing logs smaller in size. Maybe submit this as an issue or task to the Clear team? In the mean time, you could do what Nick suggested and change the loglevel value to minimize the file size.

    Wow, that went off without a hitch! Those instructions are good. I was immediately able to startx from the command line and into the Gnome desktop I went (locally). Since I had already done a command line install of the cloud backup client software, it appeared as an app in the Gnome desktop, so I was able to configure its settings and select all the folders I wanted backed up to the cloud. Awesome!

    I've got the TigerVNC server running on ClearOS, but I'm waiting until the cloud backup finishes before trying the TigerVNC viewer out. The TightVNC viewer didn't work so hot.

    Is it OK to install Gnome/

    Is it safe to install and use Gnome in order to use a desktop app for a cloud backup service our company uses? There is, after all, a document in the HowTos on installing Gnome, but I thought it better to check with the Community first. The cloud backup service is claiming it can't be configured on my ClearOS server without their desktop app. It's really just no one wants to walk me through it I'm sure. I would then probably want to remote desktop into my ClearOS box. Would using Gnome on ClearOS allow me to enable that and access the app remotely from a Windows 10 PC?

  • Thanks for the reply, Nick. It says no packages marked for update when trying your suggestion. I noticed I had disabled clearos-contribs, so after re-enabling it, your suggestion worked. Restarted Webconfig service and PHP7.2 is showing up under Server->Web->PHP Engines. I'm currently using 7.1 and am hesitant to enable 7.2 and incorporate it into my website. I'll walk gingerly into it.

  • So a yum update (with clearos-contribs repository enabled) wants to install app-php-engines and app-php-engines-core, but returns a lot of errors when looking for multiple dependency packages called rh-php72-php*. I'm still using ClearOS 7.5.0 (Final) Business Edition, and my understanding was PHP72 was to go along with 7.6.0. Right now it's holding up any future updates because of the errors, so what repo(s) to I need to enable or disable to successfully install PHP72 or disable its installation?

    I suppose it depends on the genre of the app. It would seem, Patrick, that you only have one of each of those kinds you're showing. Should you install more, more would show up. Mine looks like a mix of yours and Marcel's.

    You mean this page? That are feature requests for ClearOS 8! Dave has now released ClearOS Community 7.6.

    Regarding the "Acknowledge All" button I made a feature request for you!

    Feature request on Gitlab
