Subject: Room file directory

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

When enabling file directory on a room, upload and download rights can be enabled even if leaving visible folder disabled. If not visible, files cannot be uploaded or downloaded at all in the room! Does it make sense, or only for the case when using text client?

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Subrooms inside rooms don't seem to work; tried creating new room with name "existing room\subroom". Even tried with brackets "[existing room]\subroom". It appears just as a plain additional room at floor level along with the other rooms, instead of a room inside the specified room.

Can one use urls to link uploaded documents and view them?

I guess this would need the document to be uploaded in a file directory of course...

CONF PUTVAL|c_port_number|504

512 Illegal option(s) specified.

If that command isn't available then you're running an old version of Citadel that doesn't have the new configuration system.

You can probably reset the port number by running the setup program again.

I was thinking of doing that as well, but I was fearing that it would delete all my emails. 

So if I do that my emails wont be gone or something right?

Running the setup program will *never* erase your data. It's literally impossible for that to happen, because the setup program is not responsible for initializing the database on a new installation. Citadel Server itself is.

That having been said, I do hope you take regular backups.

Subject: Installing citadel on raspberry pi running jessie

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

The installation seemed to go ok, without any visible errors, but when I try and login as the new admin, I have to click the login button 3 times before anything happens, then I just get the clocking circle icons.

 

I ran the following:

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get upgrade

sudo apt-get install citadel-suite

 

I am running Raspbian 9.3, codename stretch

Then I also tried changing my sources.list to:

deb http://debian.citadel.org/debian/jessie main 

I get the following error:
E: Malformed entry 4 in list file /etc/apt/sources.list (Component)
E: The list of sources could not be read.
 
 
Any helpful suggestions would be appreciated!

Andrew.

I like that you're thinking about the problem and coming up with a thoughtful solution, one that takes into consideration the fact that you want to rotate your backups, cull the logs after the backup, etc.

I do have a couple of suggestions:

1. Instead of rotating the backup names, you might consider just including the day of the week in your backup filenames. That way you automatically get seven days of backups, and then they get overwritten without you having to rotate them.

2. If you're using the newest version of Citadel, you might consider only doing backups of /usr/local/citadel/data instead of the whole tree. That will just give you the database. For added safety, have your script back up /usr/local/citadel/data/cdb.* and *then* /usr/local/citadel/data/log.* after that. This is what Berkeley DB recommends.

Thanks for the suggestions- I will get started on them right away. The backup of the whole tree was intentional so that you could just extract it and have a complete installation...

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Does citadel have shared calendar functions?

I tried adding a new event in calendar for a standard level 4 user, but the attendees button never works! The attendees tab also never displays citadel users to include; only current user's contacts.

Also, when adding events I notice the event appears "delay" shifted in the day view. Meaning, if I set event from 14:00 to 16:00, the hours are saved correctly but in the day view graphic appears like 13:00 to 15:00.

Using citadel 917 and tried with latest firefox browser.

Subject: Chat problems

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Using citadel 917 installed from easy-install, multiple issues found!

 

--I can't find where chat history/logs are saved for each user. I have "Log all pages" disabled, so according to docs only sender and receiver should receive copies of their conversations. Where are they saved? How can each user access their message logs!?

 

--WTH is the "chat" room for? Even with multiple users currently online if user enters this chat room only sees him/herself! Messages are aimed to nothing! I expected this to be a *real* chat room where users could join and chat.

 

--Configuring pidgin did not work. I followed the doc "Configuring a jabber client for citadel".

Protocol: xmpp

Username: user's username

Domain: my ip address xx.xx.xx.xx

Resource: left in blank (doesn't make any difference)

Password: user's password; checked "remember password"

In Advanced tab checked "allow plaintext auth..." and left default port 5222, just like configured in citadel server.

But in latest pidgin now it forces to choose one of 3 ssl options. "Ask for certificate" and "use certificate when possible" don't work, pidgin pops error "invalid certificate". Third option, "use old ssl", does not pop the error and lets account to be enabled, but it does nothing! Message options such as send new instant message are usable, but status always gets stuck in "connecting", no users appear at all, neither online nor offline, and sent messages aimed to a user never arrive.

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

After thinking about it I don't think switching to using the day of the week is a good idea. That would only allow one backup per day, and if you manually ran a backup it is possible you would be overwriting your good backup instead of needing to run five of them to overwrite the good backup.

Is there a place I can post about this tool so people can find it?
