[HowTo] Install Froxlor on freebsd 8.1

Question

12 answers to this question

Recommended Posts

Installation is the same procedure on almost all systems (only debian has .deb and gentoo its ebuild). Just extract the tarball and open the ip/path with your browser, configuration steps for the services can be found in the panel itself after installation

I could not have opportunity to install froxlor with make install command.

 

I am not sure how can I install froxlor instead of upgraading from syscp?

 

and I wonder that the configuration files are latest instructions for freebsd?

 

because syscp and froxlor has different instructions and I could not be able to run postfix :(

1) there is not 'make install' for froxlor, please use the tarball archive

2) install instead of upgrade -> just don't use the same database name (but it's not wise to have both installed on the same machine)

3) instructions pretty up-to-date thx to the community

Let me say that I am NOT familiar with Froxlor (I just ran across it today during a google search for something else) I have been running my own FreeBSD servers for about years.

 

I am running FreeBSD 8.2-Stable (as of March 11, 2011) and installed froxlor-0.9.17 from the ports tree.

cd /usr/ports/sysutils/froxlor

make install clean

 

I had previously installed the other prerequisites from the ports tree so Apache, bind, postfix, etc. were already running. I am also running mysql-server-5.5.9 which caused a problem in the install.

 

When running the install at http://192.168.0.11/froxlor/install/install.php it displayed a MySQL error. ?mysql error desc: You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'TYPE=HEAP' at line 13

Time/date: 12/03/2011 01:17 PM

Script: /froxlor/install/install.php?.

From what I found out Froxlor is using a now depreciated syntax. Running the following command fixed the install script.

sed -i '' -e 's/TYPE=HEAP//g' /usr/local/www/froxlor/install/froxlor.sql

 

I then reran http://192.168.0.11/froxlor/install/install.php and the Froxlor install completed.

 

Once you have Froxlor running in a web browser there are links for how to configure all of the other supported software.

 

I probably had Froxlor running within 2 hours of learning of its existence. If you have more specific questions about installing Foxlor on FreeBSD please let me know and I will try and help.

Hey did you think about publishing your PDF doc in the Froxlor wiki? I think there would be a lot of people which see your tips very useful. May we can advertise some new Froxlor users on FreeBSD :)
