Install Ventrilo

Create user

Create a new user within WebConfig

User:       Ventrilo
Name:       Ventrilo
Last Name:  Server 

Everything else is up to you, but don’t give it access to anything

Place install on server

Copy the ventrilo_srv-version-Linux-i386.tar.gz file into the /home/ventrilo/ user's directory

Install

Logon to you ClearOS box via SSH

cd /home/ventrilo

Type:

tar -xzf ventrilo_srv-version-Linux-i386.tar.gz

You can delete the zip file if you like

Type:

chown -R ventrilo:allusers /home/ventrilo/ventsrv
chmod -R 0755 /home/ventrilo/ventsrv

Configure

Next, edit the .ini file

The ventrilo_srv.ini file located under /home/ventrilo/ventsrv/

vi /home/ventrilo/ventsrv/ventrilo_srv.ini

Here is where you can store the password for users, name of the server, etc.

You can find more about the .ini, at http://www.ventrilo.com/setup.php

 [Server]
 Name=yoursite.com
 Phonetic=Server 1
 Auth=1
 Duplicates=0
 AdminPassword=your password to create channels etc. 
 Password=password for your users if you want it? 
 SendBuffer=0
 RecvBuffer=0
 Diag=0

 PingRate=10
 ExtraBuffer=0
 ChanWidth=0
 ChanDepth=0

Ventrilo is a paid program and has limitation. You will only be able to allow 8 users to log in at any time. If you need more than 8 users, please rent a server. Ventrilo is usually only available in greater numbers to service providers.

Mac support

If you will ever have anyone connect using a Mac, you will want to change the following default values in your ventrilo_srv.ini file to support the Speex codec. For example:

VoiceCodec=3
VoiceFormat=21

Modifying your Script File

Next will be to create script file so you can load the service from the command line or later in Webconfig.

You need to run the service in order for it to create some files, including the .log file.

Copy the text below into a script file

Location of the file /etc/rc.d/init.d/ventrilo

vi /etc/rc.d/init.d/ventrilo

Enter the following information into the script file.

You can do this many ways, by using vi, pico or nano in the CLI (Command Line Interface) or use WinSCP to create the edit the file.

#!/bin/bash
#
# vent This shell script takes care of starting and stopping
# the Ventrilo subsystem (vent).
#
# chkconfig: - 90 10
# description: Ventrilo Chat Interface.
# processname: ventd
# config: /do_not_remove/ventrilo_srv.ini
# pidfile: /do_not_remove/ventrilo_srv.pid
# Source function library.
. /etc/rc.d/init.d/functions

# CONFIG
prog="Ventrilo Server"
vent_path=/home/ventrilo/ventsrv      # <----  Replace with the path to your /ventsrv directory
vent_user=ventrilo                    # <----  Replace with sudo user vent_bin=$vent_path/
vent_server=ventrilo_srv
vent_log=$vent_path/ventrilo_srv.log
vent_pid=$vent_path/ventrilo_srv.pid
# Startup ventrilo servers.
start(){
chmod 0775 $vent_path
chmod 0775 $vent_log

sudo -u $vent_user $vent_path/$vent_server -f$vent_path/$vent_server -d
ret=0
if [ $ret -eq 0 ]; then
STARTTIMEOUT=30
while [ $STARTTIMEOUT -gt 0 ]; do
RESPONSE=`ls -al ventrilo_srv.pid 2>&1` && break
echo "$RESPONSE" | grep -q "root" && break
break
sleep 1
let STARTTIMEOUT=${STARTTIMEOUT}-1
done
if [ $STARTTIMEOUT -eq 0 ]; then
echo "Timeout error occurred trying to start $prog Daemon."
action $"Starting $prog: " /bin/false
else
action $"Starting $prog: " /bin/true
fi
else
action $"Starting $prog: " /bin/false
fi

return $ret
}
stop(){
VENTPID=`cat "$vent_pid" 2>/dev/null `
if [ -n "$VENTPID" ]; then
/bin/kill "$VENTPID" >/dev/null 2>&1
ret=$?
if [ $ret -eq 0 ]; then
STOPTIMEOUT=60
while [ $STOPTIMEOUT -gt 0 ]; do
/bin/kill -0 "$VENTPID" >/dev/null 2>&1 || break
sleep 1

if [ $STOPTIMEOUT -eq 0 ]; then
echo "Timeout error occurred trying to stop $prog Daemon."

restart)
restart
;;

echo $"Usage: $0 {start|stop|status|restart}"
exit 1
esac

After, we need to add some options. Type the following in command line:

chown ventrilo:allusers /etc/rc.d/init.d/ventrilo
chmod 755 /etc/rc.d/init.d/ventrilo
chkconfig --add ventrilo 
chkconfig --levels 345 ventrilo on && chkconfig --list ventrilo

Now you can start your server

service ventrilo start

You will get the following warning: “chmod: cannot access `/home/ventrilo/ventsrv/ventrilo_srv.log': No such file or directory”

You can safely ignore it, because the file is not there, as you just created it. Then you should see the system come back as “OK” in green.

service ventrilo restart
service ventrilo stop

Almost Done

Next we need to create a link file under the /var/log so we can view it via the webgui. Type:

mkdir /var/log/ventrilo
cd /home/ventrilo/ventsrv/
cp ventrilo_srv.log /var/log/ventrilo/ventrilo_srv.log
rm -f ventrilo_srv.log
chown -R ventrilo:allusers /var/log/ventrilo/ventrilo_srv.log
ln -s /var/log/ventrilo/ventrilo_srv.log ventrilo_srv.log

Now restart the webconfig service

service webconfig restart 

Now you should be able to access your log menu and see

tail /var/log/ventrilo/ventirlo_srv.log

Next we'll want to add the necessary changes to the webgui in order to see the server as a service.

You need to locate and edit the following file.

vi /var/webconfig/api/Daemon.inc.php

And insert this line.

"ventrilo"     => array("httpd",        "ventrilo_srv",     "no",  "Ventrilo Server",     "no",  null),

Restart the webconfig

Type:  service webconfig restart

You should be all done!!!

You will need to open ports for Ventrilo will work. These is based on your ini file. The default port if you left it unspecified is 3784. If you need help please refer this this http://www.clearfoundation.com/docs/user_guide/clearos_enterprise_5.1/start#firewall
