Mon Jul 30 2018 04:23:06 EDT from anwoke8204 @ Uncensored Subject: no login page after install

Hi I am trying to install Citadel on Centos 7.  I ran through the install, but then when it says to browse to my server to get to the login page, nothing comes up.  I have restarted Webcit, as well as tried changing the port it was running on to see if I was conflicting with apache(not installed, this is a fresh centos install) or something.



This was the exact issue I ran into that I described in my post above.

Check through your repos to see what suggested/also installed packages come up when you attempt to install from there.

In my case, in Debian (and also Raspbian):

  • Suggested packages:   apache2 apache2 | lighttpd | httpd
  • Recommended packages:   db4.6-util
  • The following NEW packages will be installed: citadel-client citadel-server citadel-suite citadel-webcit javascript-common libcitadel4 libjs-prototype libjs-scriptaculous libmarkdown2 libsieve2-1 tinymce
Ignore the duplicate http servers and citadel named packages, install everything else.
 
I installed the following: apache2, db4.6-util, javascript-common, libjs-prototype, libjs-scriptaculous, libmarkdown2, libsieve2-1, tinymce
 
I also installed libdb-dev (berkeley db)
 
THEN went through the easy install steps by installing: build-essential, curl, g++, gettext, shared-mime-info, libssl-dev, zlib1g-dev
 
And only after then did I run the easy installer script, be sure to run it as root (sudo su) and not as a root command (sudo curl...)
 
And then when I went through the setup questions, ensure that the account the citadel service is to run on already exists. If it doesn't (and you choose something other than root), you'll likely run into issues.
 
Doing everything I laid out here was the only way I could get the easy installer script to quit with a URL string that was correct and working.
 
Surprised nobody has bothered to answer two simple questions. Doors and where to edit the 'H'elp menu text.

and where to edit the 'H'elp menu text.

* Support for external programs ("doors") was removed from the system some number of years ago, since the vast majority of sites no longer use the software in that way ... user reach would be a problem

* The help menu text is embedded into "commands.c". Until recently we fetched that text from the server, but it made more sense to put something that specific to the text client *into* the text client.

Thank you Jake.

My Citadel version 8.17 doesn't support that command/options, anyway I'm
looking forward to setup a new Citadel server; hopefully after September.

Art/IGnatius says:
Unfortunately, you do not have this option. It first appeared in
Citadel Server version 912.

You can use getval to get the current value of an option.
  ./sendcommand 'conf getval|c_smtpclient_try_starttls'

Or you can use listval to see the complete config.
  ./sendcommand 'conf listval'

  As others have pointed out, you have to enable encryption on
*outbound* SMTP
connections.
  Fortunately, there is an undocumented option to enable this.
Change to your
Citadel Server directory (/usr/local/citadel if using the Easy
Install distribution)
and enter the following command:
  ./sendcommand 'conf putval|c_smtpclient_try_starttls|1'
  With this option enabled, outbound SMTP connections will use
encryption if
it is offered by the receiving server.
  I'd like to ask you for some help please.  Anyone who turns this
option on,
please provide feedback regarding whether it works well or if there
are side
effects.  I think it's safe to use this everywhere now but I'd like
to be
100% sure about it before we make this the default behavior.

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

This is frustrating as there seems to be know support information "out there".  

I used the installation script on a brand new Ubuntu server build.  If anyone would be willing to point me to a fail-safe walkthrough document for a new install, I'd be willing to rebuild...just need to back up my Unifi controller config.

As I mentioned before, I have run a Citadel node before (SEVERAL years ago).  The install was straight forward and I had ZERO issues.  I am at a loss as to why my vanilla install on a fresh Ubuntu server is having these issues...

Subject: Urgent free space problem

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

Hi guys,
We use the Citadel in our company.
There are ~50 users on the server, the mail traffic is quite heavy because of large messages with attachments.
The size of Citadel partition is 180Gb, and we are running out of space on this partition.
We started cleaning process when there were about 8Gb of free space (4-5 weeks ago).
I am pretty sure a lot of space should be free at the moment, we have deleted all unused accounts and cleaned all other account. In fact, there wee lots of Sent item folders with >15000 messages and now all of them have been cleaned.
The empty space is still decreasing, the process is quite stable. Now we have less than 3Gb left.
We have added all the available server free space to Citadel LVM partition, so no more options to get free space are left.
And I am pretty sure there has to be a lot of free space in the internal Citadel database.
I am pretty sure that real life process is not as it described in FAQ section Why doesn't deleting messages free up disk space: "When messages or other data are removed from the store, that spaceis made available for other data".

We run Centos 6 and the last Citadel v.8.24 from the repository.


Please, advise.

Thanks!

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

Ok.  Now trying to set up a room to act like a mailing list.  I want to add external email addresses (not members of the community) and also use an alternative address (not "room_*").

From a configuration standpoint, it seems I have it figured out...but it does not act as expected.  I can only get citadel to accept emails to the room if I use the "room_*" format...and then, the message only goes to the room...not forwarded on to subscribers.  And, even though I set up the alternate email address in the mailing list config, Citadel will not accept the email to that address ("address not found").

Any help would be appreciated!!

If I can get mailing list functionality and email forwards working (without having to have those folks as users), then Citadel is definitely here to stay.

The room will not forward on to subscribers.  And, ALSO, it will not accept email to the alternate email address.

When I send email to the "room_*@domain" format, it gets dumped into the room (and not forwarded to the subscriber email addresses.  When I send email to the alternate email alias, it bounces with a "550 Invalid Recipient" message...

I deleted the room and recreated it.  Now when I send to the alias email address I get the following:  "553 sorry, no mailbox here by that name"  

And, as before, when I send to the "room_*@domain" format, the message gets dumped into the room...but not forwarded on to recipients....

Ok.  It appears to be working with the "room_*" address now.  I just can't get an alias email address to work.  (same domain...just removing "room_" from the full email address).  I even added it to the aliases file to see if that would help...nope.

Is there any good way to troubleshoot why the rooms are not forwarding emails on?  (and why personal email forward rules are not doing so either.)

I'm assuming the issue is related.

(note, I CAN send email from an account within Citadel without issue.)
