    I found this document very handy with finding the default admin password
    ClearOS Documentation link here

    the command I used (and it worked a treat)

    thanks for the reply. Not sure what I'd do without you.

    ls -al /mnt/cloudstore/owncloud/data/<username>/files
    shows the same as
    ls -al /var/clearos/owncloud/data/<username>/files

    i touched a new file in /mnt/cloudstore/owncloud/data/<username>/files and it also appeared in /var/clearos/owncloud/data/<username>/files so the bind is correct

    the /mnt/cloudstore is a 1Tb 2nd HDD attached to the VM and mounted with /etc/fstab


    I'll dig a little deeper into this on the ownCloud forums and see what I can find

  • Error Uploading Files: 403 Forbibben

    About a week ago I migrated my ClearOS 7.x Home firewall from a physical to a virtual server using Proxmox. Everything runs great, performance is also exceptional having given the VM 6Gb of Ram and 2 CPU cores.

    COS 7 VM is running on a 128Gb (/dev/sda) disk with a 1Tb (/dev/sdb) disk dedicated for ownCloud storage. I've used the Storage Manager app to bind "/dev/sdb1/owncloud/data" to "/var/clearos/owncloud/data". The bulk 130Gb of my ownCloud local files have uploaded to the server (my user acct has unlimited ownCloud storage)

    This was working perfectly until a couple of days ago. local file changes made are not being uploaded to the ownCloud server. <b> Server replied "403 Forbidden" to "PUT...</b> and a <b> Server replied "403 Forbidden" to "MOVE... </b> errors appearing in the local ownCloud client.

    If I logon to the ownCloud server web interface and make any file changes there, these changes are being reflected on the local machines ownCloud dir. I'm also no longer able to manually upload files to the ownCloud Web Interface either.

    I can roll back the VM to a previous version however don't want to have to reconfigure some of the server settings. the 2nd 1Tb disk is NOT in the Proxmox backup job. That's been omitted on purpose.

    The central.ownCloud.org site forums have a few posts on this however I'd rather run this past the ClearOS forum.

    Thanks for the clarification. When Clearcenter allow me the time, I'll update the HowTo, but note that your comment applies to which ever site hosts your domain. It is not restricted to Clearcenter hosting your domain.

    FWIW your SPF record can also be simplified from:to:as hardingclan.org is assumed for the A and MX records. Your A record directly resolves to your IP and your MX record resolves to mail.hardingclan.org which resolves to hardingclan.org so there is no point in specifying the IP and the include just sends the SPF lookup in circles.

    Josh Harding replied to a discussion, DKIM No Key Found

    Charles & Nick,
    I've just been thru the process of creating a new domain and stepped thru the ClearOS Documentation HowTo for installing and creating a DKIM key. I also did EXACTLY as per the HowTo and reading your previous post Charles, I figured out where I also was going wrong.

    In the HowTo it states

    Now you need to update your DNS records. Open the file '/etc/opendkim/keys/mydomain.com/YYYYMM.txt'. In your DNS records, create a new TXT record with a subdomain as the first field in the file which you can just copy. In this case it is “YYYYMM._domainkey”. For TXT Data copy and paste everything between the first and last set of quotes, excluding the first and last quotes and removing the middle quotes and whitespace between them.


    I didn't realize the "DNS records, create a new TXT record with a subdomain" were referencing the secure.clearcenter.com/portal/dns_txt.jsp" target="_blank">https://secure.clearcenter.com/portal/dns_txt.jsp where I'd set up my domain. I was thinking this was referencing somewhere on my COS server and was left scratching my head on this for almost a week!

    Anyway, screenshots of the HowTo plus the ClearCenter DNS Config TXT tool

    I repeated the Howto steps but added a new subdomain "202012._domainkey" using the DNS Config TXT tool on the secure.clearcenter.com/portal. and now I have a working openDKIM key.

    I tested the SPF and DKIM key using https://www.mail-tester.com/spf-dkim-check
    Everything now checks out and I'm confident I've got a valid SPF and DKIM record for my new Domain and emails should happily reach their destination... although this is still yet to be tested.

  • You have got lots of things here! If you can, I'd avoid changing the LAN domain as I've seen it end in tears and I am not sure why. If it does end in tears, do a configuration restore.

    You need to find somewhere to host your domain. There are plenty of domain providers, including Clearcenter. You'll need one to set up all your DNS records except your PTR record. Moving your domain to another domain host should have no effect on ClearOS.

    Do you have an Dynamic IP and what do you want to do with your poweredbyclear.com FQDN? The Clearcenter DDNS can either update your poweredbyclear.com subdomain or your domain, if they host it, but not both. If you ask them nicely, they may convert your poweredbyclear.com subdomain to a CNAME record pointing to your domain.

    If you have a static IP without control over your PTR record (your ISP controls this) or a dynamic IP, you will need to relay your e-mails out via either your ISP (if they permit it) or via an SMTP service such as your duocircle.com account, or many e-mail servers or ISPs will either reject or SPAM your e-mails.
