• \[solved\]\[?\] Webmin


    I spent all day trying to setup my usual Ubuntu/Debian working environment. I have to setup a LAMP stack and i dont really like things like XAMP packages. A lot of steps were easy, others just took a bit of reading and getting used to (like systemd).
    But i’m getting stuck with webmin.
    Mainly Webmin is not detecting any of the servers installed, and even if i point it to the right configuration files, i can’t use most of the functionalities i need. The probable issue here is that webmin is not supporting systemd, so every time i try to reboot apache (for instance) it tries to use initd: it tries to use the script /etc/rc.d/httpd which doesn’t exists. And yes i can change the script to systemctl start apache.service command, but still lots of other stuff doesn’t work, like plugins and system wide functionality.

    Does anyone knows how to solve this or know anything similar to webmin that works with Antergos?

    i also failed in setup ProFTPD. It won’t accept any of the system users… so a moved to VSFTPD and it’s working.

    sory for my kaotic English.

  • I havent looked at webmin in a while but considering how long Fedora has been using systemd I would think there would be support for it by now. If you aren’t setting up a headless server, a web control panel is way more trouble than its worth, IMHO.

    I use Ajenti running inside an Ubuntu docker container on my Linode. Works great. If you havent played with docker yet you don’t know what you are missing!! It’s the perfect tool for creating development environments!

    And i think webmin, from what i’ve been reading, has support for systemd in Fedora.
    Thing is… in Ubuntu, aside minor configurations, it’s install and it’s ready to work. I mainly use it for backups, cronjobs and installing modules, from php-pear to RGems. It was an easy way of doing not so hard things (HAHAHA).

    yesterday i was thinking, why not install all this on VMs. At least it was less bloat on my main system, it would be easier to backup. The only quirk of mine, is that i like direct access to the files i’m working on, instead of over ftp or file transfer… but it’s a good idea.

    BTW
    Since i’ve just got here, from Ubuntu, i just have to say thanks for the freaking fast to install, fast boot, and beautifull Arch distro!

    Did You try sshfs? This program can mount remote resource, like directory, into local directory. I was using it with success in my latest job and I’m using it with success in my current job
    I would give it a try. You will need ssh server on remote host and sshfs on your local host, to get it working.
    After mounting, You will have direct access to your remote resource, as if it was on your localhost. And you can use it like local directory ;p

  • I don’t mind mounting a NFS drive and work on it…
    1*1/2 decades ago i wouldn’t mind using CLI to install LINUX (Linux not arch or ubuntu or RH or suse or…)

I am little confused after the mention of nfs and sshfs…are you working with a remote system or a local system? What I understood was you were working on your local system not a remote server.

  • local system

  • Obviously - for local system there is no rational use for sshfs
    I was thinking rather about using sshfs while using VM. VM would be then snomething like remote host.

  • Yeah but with a VM, or should I say with Virtual Box, its easier to use its shared directories. Though I still say in this case, VM’s are too much overhead. Use docker and run Ajenti inside a container, that’s my advice.

  • its mainly a local system, thou it has more than one user and sometimes is accessed by another machine inside LAN…

    I’ll see about docker
    this one right?:

    And i just remembered why i moved from VSFTPD from to ProFTPd… The official vsftpd package won’t let users to be chrooted or simply jailed in they home dir… The vsftpd dev prefers users looking inside system folder then have the ability to chroot/jaill then, due to some vulnerability that he won’t even talk about… Every time i install vsftpd i get

  • Yes thats it. I linked this earlier but here it is again, Ajenti running inside docker container: [https://github.com/paimpozhil/WhatPanel][0]">[https://github.com/paimpozhil/WhatPanel][1]
