I have no idea what you mean :)
Do you need to control the services? If so there's two contribs you can use, these are generally dangerous if you don't know exactly what you can turn on or off, some services will lock you off from the server.

This one will do it. (and a few more things) :cool:

The install commands should be changed as there is a newer version available.

This:
Code: [Select]
wget http://sme.firewall-services.com/downloads/sme7admin/rpms/smeserver-sme7admin-1.1.0-3.noarch.rpm
yum --enablerepo=smecontribs localinstall smeserver-sme7admin-1.1.0-3.noarch.rpm
/etc/init.d/mysql.init restart
/etc/init.d/sme7admind restart

Should be changed to this>

Code: [Select]
wget http://sme.firewall-services.com/downloads/sme7admin/rpms/smeserver-sme7admin-1.1.0-4.noarch.rpm
yum --enablerepo=smecontribs localinstall smeserver-sme7admin-1.1.0-4.noarch.rpm
/etc/init.d/mysql.init restart
/etc/init.d/sme7admind restart

Note: This is the latest version and has not been pushed to the contrib repos yet as near as I can tell.

The server-manager already does the role you describe.

When you enable or disable functionality, appropriate services are started/stopped and appropriate ports are opened/closed.

In a default install many services are disabled anyway, until you enable them in server manager, so only a minimal set of services are running and ports are open, say in a default install of server gateway mode.

You also have further control (beyond what server manager offers) with simple db commands to limit public/private access or enable/disable services. Most of the commands are listed in the FAQ and Howto pages, so look and read.

You can easily come "unstuck" with a services control panel like sme7admin or similar, as you may disable a service that you actually need eg mail - you will no longer receive admin emails, web server - you will no longer be able to access server manager.
Be very careful using such a control panel, as you may turn off something that sme actually needs.

Services and ports control is integrated into server manager (& the underlying code/db commands) for all common requirements, so use server manager the way it was intended to be used.
