phpsysinfo public access and regular http
« on: November 25, 2008, 10:03:51 PM »
The wiki is not updated regarding phpsysinfo

It is now avaliable in the smecontribs repo

installing using yum:
yum install --enablerepo=smecontribs smeserver-phpsysinfo

First line will enable public access to the contrib, second will "unenforce" https
db configuration setprop phpsysinfo access public
db configuration setprop phpsysinfo HTTPS off

make changes take effect
expand-template /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf
/etc/init.d/httpd-e-smith restart (maybe svc should be used instead, if so, please enlight me)

Go ahead and update the wiki, it is a collaborative documentation effort.

First line will enable public access to the contrib, second will "unenforce" https
db configuration setprop phpsysinfo access public
db configuration setprop phpsysinfo HTTPS off

make changes take effect
expand-template /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf
Especially when making it publicly available I would not disable https as your password will travel in plain text over the internet, using https (http over SSL) your password will be encrypted when send from your browser to your server.

Why would you want to https off anyway?

/etc/init.d/httpd-e-smith restart (maybe svc should be used instead, if so, please enlight me)
And yes please use the proper commands (yours is outdated as of SME 7.3):
Code: [Select]
sv t httpd-e-smith

I noticed that some time ago as well. And posted something to the talk page.
@cactus that was one of the pages I talked about when I was remarking about the use of the discussion pages in the wiki and the RecentChanges page. Don't know if you remember.

make changes take effect
expand-template /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf
/etc/init.d/httpd-e-smith restart (maybe svc should be used instead, if so, please enlight me)
Wouldn't signal-event remoteuseraccess-update do the trick as well, or better?

Regarding the https access switched off I would assent to cactus's view.

Should that then be added to the wiki?

I requested access to the wiki ages ago, access was never granted.

When making access public one might as well disable the reenforced https as no password will be needed (at least thats the case here). I might test it on a clean install if you insist that this is not true.
