Here are the shares I have set up on my home server:

Code: [Select]
drw-rwx--- 2 ebox __USERS__ 4096 2010-08-09 21:03 audio
drw-rwx--- 3 ebox __USERS__ 4096 2010-08-09 21:10 files
drw-rwx--- 2 ebox __USERS__ 4096 2010-08-09 21:03 images
drw-rwx--- 2 ebox __USERS__ 4096 2010-08-09 21:03 repair
drw-rwx--- 2 ebox __USERS__ 4096 2010-08-09 21:03 video

Note the user and group for the folders. This is the same that the files get.

It would be better if we ended up with user as the logged in user and group as ebox?

Is this a bug os is this a feature?  :)

Installation and Upgrades / Fresh install of eBox 1.5-1 ISO
« on: August 08, 2010, 05:03:16 am »
As my server has been having some big problems after attempting to upgrade to 1.5.10, I decided to reinstall it completely and at the same time give the new ISO a try.

The last installation was done by installing Ubuntu Server 10.04 from ISO and the install 1.5 from ppa.

I tried selecting the advanced version and the screen flickered a little at the start, something about floppy flashed quickly and then I got the regular Ubuntu Server installation.

After answering the usual questions, I got the GUI for eBox and logged in.

IMPORTANT - Nothing led me to believe that I actually HAD to log on to finish the install. I think this should be displayed in big letters.

I got the option to select some pre-defined roles for the server. As I prefer selecting the packages myself, I was looking for some kind of advanced options. And I finally found it, but it is easily overlooked. I think this options should be the last one on the list with it's own icon and just as big as the other options.

After finishing the first part, I got a configuration wizard. This one is nice the very first time a server is installed, but I hope that I will NEVER see it again, unless I completely reinstall the server.

After managing to log on to the server via SSH, I tried editing some textfiles by issuing

Code: [Select]
sudo nano text.txt
Big was my surprise when I got

Code: [Select]
sudo: nano: command not found
What happened? Don't you use a standard Ubuntu 10.04 as the base for eBox?

Also, doing a sudo apt-get update gives you this at the end:

Code: [Select]
W: GPG error: lucid Release: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY 5F99A088342D17AC
The first change I did was to install apt-cacher NG on the server. I have multiple Ubuntu based systems in the house and I really need the cache because of the slow speed of our internet connection.

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install apt-cacher-ng
Then the proxyfile needs to be added. It gets a little more tricky without nano, but you need to add

Code: [Select]
Acquire::http { Proxy ""; };
to a file called 01proxy in /etc/apt/apt.conf.d . Remember to use the IP address you gave your server.

By adding this proxy file to all the other Ubuntu based systems in the house, the first one to ask for a file make it download, the others get the file from the server.

I'll try to update everything and get the server working right. There are a few more things I need to install, but I really need to get nano working!
