All these HowTo's are made based on other peoples HowTo's with my own additions to make them even easier to understand. I do in no way claim to be the e-smith wiz as I have merely gathered all the HowTo's to be able to do my own installation. All these HowTo's have been installed on a SME v5.5 with Update2 and when I did my Update installation to 5.6 they all worked without any hassle.

How to use SSH to remotely access Server-Manager

On SME v5.5 SSH X11 forwarding is enabled by default but on 5.6 you have to modify the SSH configuration.

[root@e-smith ]# mkdir -p /etc/e-smith/templates-custom/etc/ssh/sshd_config
[root@e-smith ]# echo "X11Forwarding yes" > /etc/e-smith/templates-custom/etc/ssh/sshd_config/X11Forwarding
[root@e-smith ]# /sbin/e-smith/expand-template /etc/ssh/sshd_config

Now restart the SSH deamon

[root@e-smith ]# service sshd restart

Download and install TTSH Telnet / SSH client
Read this section: How to Obtain and Install TTSSH
Make a shortcut to c:\program files\TTTERMPRO\ttssh.exe on your desktop.

Open TTSH | Setup | SSH Forwarding and configure like so:

Set Terminal Window Size: Setup | Terminal | check Term size=win size
Make sure you save it by doing Setup | Save Setup

File | New Connection and put in your remote IP to connection.

When prompted login as either admin or root and supply password (same for both)
admin gets your the console and can admin it via lynx text browser, etc.
root gets your the shell ...check diskspace df -h, change config files, etc.

Open up your broswer and type http://localhost:8000 (you need the http:// part)
It'll prompt you for authentication. Again login either as admin or root and voila
you should now be able to use web browser to admin your e-smith server remotely.

How to enable HTML emails for webmail (Horde/IMP)


Please note that the horde directory is located in:



How to install SSL Certificate for webmail

The solution is to install your own certificates into Windows on a permanent basis, thus preventing users from being continually prompted to accept certificates. And this is the point where things usually fall apart, since most applications, such as Outlook Express, do not have the ability to import certificates from a server -- leaving users to click "Use this server" every time they check for email.

Fortunately the answer is simple and quick. Using Internet Explorer, load the URL for the service; for example, with a SSL-enabled IMAP server running on "," place the following URL into the Address bar:

The users will be prompted with the normal certificate dialog, and if they choose to install the certificate it will then be available to Outlook Express and other applications that make use of the Windows certificate management.

The following is a list of common SSL-enabled services and their port numbers:


Point Internet Explorer at the server and the appropriate port; you will be able to install the certificate with ease. To make life easier for users, you can also export the certificates, allowing for distribution in custom builds of Internet Explorer, for example, or housed on a company Intranet site.


How to install YAPPA Photo Album

(based on contribution from Eric Womack)

First install the Freetype package (check for updates)

SME 5.5U2

[root@e-smith ]# rpm -ivh


SME 5.6

[root@e-smith ]# rpm -ivh


Then create an ibay to hold your pictures

Information bay name: Yappa
Description: Online Photo Album

Group: everyone
User access: Write=group, Read=everyone
Public access: (As you like it)
Execution of dynamic content: enabled

Now download the Yappa package from SourceForge.Net ( and Unzip in the HTML directory

Now edit the file so that the Photo_root variable is set to the path of the images.

 /* directory where album dirs are stored */
    "photo_root" => "/home/e-smith/files/ibays/yappa/html/photos",

Also make sure to set the Image_Module to use the GD package with is already installed on the SME 5.5

 /* Image module: Magick, gd */
    "image_module" => 'gd',

In order to use the latest version 1.7 you need to alter a line in the "image-gd.class.php" file or you will not have auto generated thumbnails.

Change the line as indicated below (the ImageCreateTruecolor and ImageCopyResampled are part of the GD version 2 which is not yet available and functional on SME 5.5.

function ImageUtil(&$config)
    // $this->_can_truecolor = (function_exists("ImageCreateTruecolor") && function_exists("ImageCopyResampled")) ? 1 : 0;
    $this->_can_truecolor = 0;

How to Install MRTG system monitoring with SNMP Support

(created based on contribution by several people)

First install the two SNMP packages (check for updates)

SME 5.5U2

[root@e-smith ]# rpm -ivh

[root@e-smith ]# rpm -ivh


SME 5.6

[root@e-smith ]# rpm -ivh

[root@e-smith ]# rpm -ivh


Then install the latest MRTG RPM (check for updates)

[root@e-smith ]# rpm -ivh

You then need to change the hosts.allow file to allow access to the snmp deamon

Issue the following commands at console:

[root@e-smith ]# mkdir -p /etc/e-smith/templates-custom/etc/hosts.allow
[root@e-smith ]# echo "snmpd:," > /etc/e-smith/templates-custom/etc/hosts.allow/snmpd
[root@e-smith ]# /sbin/e-smith/expand-template /etc/hosts.allow

You can replace the "," with "ALL" if you allow SNMP requests from the anywhere.

Then we need to make sure that the SNMP deamon is allowed to prope the right values. This is done by adding or modifying the following entries in the snmpd.conf file.

[root@e-smith ]# cd /etc/snmp

[root@e-smith ]# pico snmp.conf

# First, map the community name (COMMUNITY) into a security name 

# (local and mynetwork, depending on where the request is coming 

# from):

#            source         community 

com2sec     local             localhost       public


# Second, map the security names into group names: 

#                             sec.model 

group MyROGroup     v1                    local 

group MyROGroup     v2c                   local 

group MyROGroup     usm                 local


# Third, create a view for us to let the groups have rights to: 

#                  incl/excl     subtree     mask 

view     all     included     .1             80


# Finally, grant the group access to the 1 view with different # write permissions: 

#                         context     sec.model sec.level match     read  write     notif 

access MyROGroup ""            any          noauth    exact      all     none     none


You now want to make sure that the SNMP deamon is restarted when/if the server is rebooted:

[root@e-smith ]# cd /etc/rc.d/rc7.d

[root@e-smith ]# ln -s /etc/rc.d/init.d/snmpd S95snmpd

[root@e-smith ]# /sbin/e-smith/config set snmpd service InitscriptOrder 95 status enabled

Now make sure to start the SNMP deamon to have the new setting take effect

[root@e-smith ]# service snmpd start

Now you are ready to do the actual MRTG installation:

1) Then create an ibay called "mrtg" from the server manager

Information bay name: mrtg
Description: MRTG System Monitor
Group: everyone
User access: Write=group, Read=everyone
Public access: (As you like it)
Execution of dynamic content: disabled

2) Create the MRTG script

[root@e-smith ]# cd /root

[root@e-smith ]# pico create-mrtg

Now paste the following text into PICO and save the files by pressing CTRL-X, Y, to save. Make sure not to have line-breaks in the middle of the different commands.

#This script will create a folder inside the ibay "mrtg" which is named by the first variable. It will create a cfg file inside the /etc/mrtg folder. 

#It will also add a line to the script "/etc/mrtg/all-ip" so that #crontab will run this script which in turn will run mrtg for each device. 

#The second variable is the IP address of each device to be monitored..This script is best run when "all" the workstations connected to 

#it are powered up because "cfgmaker" ignores inactive ports when it is run.
#       EX:
#                                                              Var1     Var2
#                                                                 |         | 
#           [root@e-smith /root]# create-mrtg 10001

# Create a "workdir" for this device using the first variable
mkdir -p /home/e-smith/files/ibays/mrtg/html/$1

#create the cfg file for this Ip address using the first variable (assumes community string is "public")
perl /usr/bin/cfgmaker public@$2 --global "workdir: /home/e-smith/files/ibays/mrtg/html/$1" --output /etc/mrtg/$1.cfg

#Create an index.html file for this folder using the first variable
perl /usr/bin/indexmaker /etc/mrtg/$1.cfg > /home/e-smith/files/ibays/mrtg/html/$1/index.html

#create an entry in script "all-ip" to run mrtg for each device. 
echo "/usr/bin/mrtg /etc/mrtg/$1.cfg;" >> /etc/mrtg/all-ip 

#Uncommenting the line below will create a "master" index.htm inside the ibay/html directory for all devices.
#Note that this line will create a text file called index.html. This should be edited for correct html syntax.

#echo "<br><a href=$1/index.html> Traffic on ports of Device $1 </a>" >> /home/e-smith/files/ibays/mrtg/html/index.html

3) make the script executable

[root@e-smith ]# chmod 755 create-mrtg

4) Now run create-mrtg

                                   var1        var 2

                                    |            |

[root@e-smith ]# ./create-mrtg     server

5) You now need to make sure that the update is run with regular intervals (every 5mins) so we insert it in the Crontab scheduler

[root@e-smith ]# chmod 755 /etc/mrtg/all-ip

[root@e-smith ]# mkdir -p /etc/e-smith/templates-custom/etc/crontab/

[root@e-smith ]# echo "0-59/5 * * * * root /etc/mrtg/all-ip" > /etc/e-smith/templates-custom/etc/crontab/mrtg

[root@e-smith ]# /sbin/e-smith/expand-template /etc/crontab


6) Now wait 5 minutes and then try to look at

If you also want to monitor your disk as well as CPU usage you can do the following:

First you need to add a disk entry in your snmp.conf file. Here is an example of an snmp.conf file from my system.

[root@e-smith ]# cd /etc/snmp

[root@e-smith ]# pico snmp.conf

find the Disk Check section or add the parameters:

# disk checks

# The agent can check the amount of available disk space, and make
# sure it is above a set limit. 

# PATH: mount path to the disk in question.
# MIN: Disks with space below this value will have the Mib's errorFlag set.

# Check the / partition and make sure it contains at least 10 megs.

disk / 10000
disk /boot 10000

Make sure to specify existing mounts. Press CTRL-X, Y , to save when complete. Your mounts can bee found by executing the mount command:

You then need to restart the snmp deamon to enable the new parameters.

[root@e-smith ]# service snmpd restart

You now need to create MRTG config files for your CPU and Disk. 

[root@e-smith ]# cd /etc/mrtg

[root@e-smith ]# pico system.cfg

Now inserts the following text and press CTRL-X, Y, to save.

workdir: /home/e-smith/files/ibya/mrtg/html/system

Interval: 5

Now we just need to make sure this new MRTG config file is run every 5 minutes. 

[root@e-smith ]# pico all-ip

Insert the following line in the bottom and press CTRL-X, Y, to save:

/usr/bin/mrtg /etc/mrtg/system.cfg;

6) Now wait 5 minutes and then try to look at

How to Install AWStats Web Statistics

There are two way of doing this. The first and absolutely most easy way is to use the RPM developed by Neddix. They have a version of AWStats 4.0 as well as AWStats 5.3 installation which is only accesses via the Server Manager.

Description and the RPM for this can be found at: The AWStats 5.3 version can also be found in my download section.

If you want to install in a Ibay and spend the time configuring your self then do the following.

1) First create an ibay with the name "awstats":

Information bay name: awstats
Description: AWStats Web Statistics
Group: everyone
User access: Write=group, Read=everyone
Public access: (As you like it)
Execution of dynamic content: enabled

2) Download the latest AWStats from (

3) Now you have to move the content of cgi-bin directory (wwwroot/cgi-bin) inside the ZIP file into the cgi-bin directory in the AWStats ibay

4) Now you have to move icon directory (wwwroot/icon) inside the ZIP file into the html directory in the AWStats ibay. The icon directory with content should be a sub-dir inside the HTML directory.

5) Now move the content of the tools directory inside the ZIP file into the cgi-bin directory in the AWStats ibay

You now have to configure AWStats.

6) Inside the cgi-bin directory in the awstats Ibay now need to make a copy of the awstats.model.conf file where you replace the "model" with the domain name that you want to get statistics for.

    ex. (from Windows/Dos)

    C:\>copy awstats.model.conf 

7) Now you have to edit the new .conf file with you favorite editor. Make sure to change the following parameters:


LogFormat="%virtualname %host %other %logname %time1 %methodurl %code %bytesd %refererquot %uaquot"




SiteDomain="" changed to your domain name.

HostAliases=" localhost" changed to your domain name.


UseFramesWhenCGI=1 (optional)

8) Now make sure the the file is an executable. Go to the cgi-bin directory and issue the following command.

[root@e-smith ]# chmod 755

9) use you favorite browser and open the URL:

10) Remember to press the Update button and enjoy the stats.

How to Install NetJuke for SME Server v. 5.5

(with contribution from Michael Smith)

Why Netjuke? Why not simply stick with the MP3 Jukebox blade? Well, the Jukebox blade is great but it's slow on older server hardware and it requires a lot of thought in planning your directory structure. Netjuke uses a real, live MySQL database to store music info, so you can access your entire music collection by artist, track title, album title, genre -- or a random selection from any and all of the above.  

The Netjuke home page:


first create a MySQL database for netjuke

[root@e-smith ]# mysqladmin create netjuke

[root@e-smith ]# mysql --user=root  mysql

mysql>GRANT ALL ON netjuke.* TO netjuke@localhost IDENTIFIED BY 'netjukepassword';

mysql>flush privileges;


Then create an ibay from the server manager:

Information bay name: netjuke
Description: networked jukebox
Group: everyone
User access: Write=group, Read=everyone
Public access: (As you like it)
Execution of dynamic content: enabled

I recommend not setting a password on this ibay.

From the console or shell prompt (note that you should be able to copy & paste the commands if using SSH or PuTTY): Please make sure to get the latest version of netjuke from

[root@e-smith ]# cd /home/e-smith/files/ibays/netjuke
[root@e-smith ]# wget
[root@e-smith ]# tar -xvzf netjuke-1.0b16-php4.1+.tar.gz

This will unzip all files into a subfolder called "netjuke". What we have to do now is move the contents of THAT folder into the ibay's "html" folder. Note that the "mv" command is "mv (space)(STAR)(space)(DOT)(DOT)(SLASH)html(SLASH)" which translates to "move everything, including subfolders, from THIS folder into the html folder, one level down from the parent folder of the current folder (thus the "dot dot").

[root@e-smith ]# cd /home/e-smith/files/ibays/netjuke/netjuke
[root@e-smith ]# mv * ../html/

Check to see that you can access the "netjuke" ibay from your network. If you cannot, you have a login name/password problem.

Now we're ready to run the scripts. The next step is from a web browser:

http://(YOUR SME SERVER)/netjuke/installer/installer.php

You will be asked for the name of the netjuke database you created, user, and password. You must also set up an admin login & password.

This will generate & offer to download a file named "installer.php", which you should save as "inc-prefs.php". For a reason I don't know, I was unable to save it directly into the location it needs to be in, namely, the "etc" folder under the "html" folder in the netjuke ibay. So I saved it into the "html" folder, which I was able to access easily via Network Neighborhood, then used the Linux "mv" command from the console to move inc-prefs.php to the etc. folder, like so:

[root@e-smith ]# cd /home/e-smith/files/ibays/netjuke/html
[root@e-smith ]# mv inc-prefs7.php ./etc/

(Note the SINGLE dot in that command, rather than the double dot.)

[root@e-smith ]# cd /home/e-smith/files/ibays/netjuke/html/var
[root@e-smith ]# chmod -R 777 data
[root@e-smith ]# chmod -R 777 music
[root@e-smith ]# cd /home/e-smith/files/ibays/netjuke/html/etc
[root@e-smith ]# chmod 777 inc-prefs.php

I also deleted the index.html file from the netjuke ibay, so I wouldn't get the default SME page if I neglected to specify "index.php" when logging in to the jukebox. And per Daury's documentation, I also deleted the "installer" directory for better security. WATCH OUT here as the "rm -rf" command is a good candidate for the most destructive command in Linux! If you were to do "rm -rf *" from the root of your filesystem you would destroy everything!

[root@e-smith ]# cd /home/e-smith/files/ibays/netjuke/html
[root@e-smith ]# rm -rf index.html
[root@e-smith ]# rm -rf installer

Now you should be able to return to your web browser and access your new Netjuke setup with the following URL:

http://(YOUR SME SERVER)/netjuke

Use the Admin function to customize. I set my Security Mode to 0.1 so I could login from anywhere but no one could create a user. 

Now load some music: everything goes in /home/e-smith/files/ibays/netjuke/html/var/music

Once you've loaded some music, it's time to tell Netjuke what it is. Use the "Recursive File Finder"; it will go through all your music files and extract whatever information it can from ID3 tags on MP3 files.

Go back to "Browse" and enjoy.

How to install fetchmail


SME 5.5U2

[root@e-smith ]# rpm -Uvh



SME 5.6

[root@e-smith ]# rpm -Uvh

[root@e-smith ]# rpm -Uvh


From the e-smith manager in the "E-mail retrival" set the retrival mode to "multi-drop". Make sure to change the secondary mail server to a valid address (suggestion: type your own host name). Configure the check interval and then go to the "Mail Users" section in the server manager main menu. Choose "Individual mailbox" and configure the POP3 name, username and password.

How to enable FTP to an iBay

If you want to ftp to an Ibay you need to use the ibay name not user name e.g  you will need to create a custom template

[root@e-smith ]# mkdir /etc/e-smith/templates-custom/etc/proftpd.conf

[root@e-smith ]# pico /etc/e-smith/templates-custom/etc/proftpd.conf/60AnonymousIBay

copy and paste this into it:

# How to handle logins from information bay accounts: chroot to the
# files part of the information bay directory.

my %accounts;
tie %accounts, 'esmith::config', '/home/e-smith/accounts';

my $key;
my $value;
$OUT .= "";

while (($key,$value) = each %accounts)
my ($type, %properties) = split (/\|/, $value, -1);
if ($type eq 'ibay')
# Figure out which combination of parameters to use. If
# PublicAccess parameter is present, this is e-smith 4.0.
# Otherwise, it's e-smith 3.0.

my $allow;
my $pass;

if ($properties{'PublicAccess'})
if ($properties{'PublicAccess'} eq 'none')
$allow = "";
$pass = 1;
elsif ($properties{'PublicAccess'} eq 'local')
$allow = $localAccess;
$pass = 0;
elsif ($properties{'PublicAccess'} eq 'local-pw')
$allow = $localAccess;
$pass = 1;
elsif ($properties{'PublicAccess'} eq 'global')

$allow = 'all';
$pass = 0;
elsif ($properties{'PublicAccess'} eq 'global-pw')
$allow = 'all';
$pass = 1;
elsif ($properties{'PublicAccess'} eq 'global-pw-remote')
$allow = 'all';
$pass = 1;
elsif ($properties {'ReadAccess'} eq 'global')
if ($properties {'UsePassword'} eq 'yes')
$allow = 'all';
$pass = 1;
$allow = 'all';
$pass = 0;
if ($properties {'UsePassword'} eq 'yes')
$allow = $localAccess;
$pass = 1;
$allow = $localAccess;
$pass = 0;

# variables: $allow (IP), $pass (bool)

$OUT .= "\n";
$OUT .= "<Anonymous /home/e-smith/files/ibays/$key/>\n";
$OUT .= " User $key\n";
$OUT .= " Group $key\n";
$OUT .= " AnonRequirePassword " . ($pass ? "on" : "off") . "\n";
$OUT .= " UseFtpUsers on\n";
$OUT .= " MaxClients 10\n";
$OUT .= " DisplayLogin welcome.msg\n";
$OUT .= " DisplayFirstChdir .message\n";
$OUT .= " <Limit LOGIN>\n";
$OUT .= " Order Allow,Deny\n";
$OUT .= " Allow from $allow\n";
$OUT .= " Deny from all\n";
$OUT .= " </Limit>\n";
$OUT .= " <Directory *>\n";
$OUT .= " <Limit WRITE>\n";
$OUT .= " AllowAll\n";
$OUT .= " </Limit>\n";
$OUT .= " </Directory>\n";
$OUT .= "</Anonymous>\n";

Crtl x to save

now expand the template

[root@e-smith ]# /sbin/e-smith/expand-template /etc/proftpd.conf

That should allow your user to access all folders in a ibay.

If access is only required for the html directory then you could replace the line that says

$OUT .= "<Anonymous /home/e-smith/files/ibays/$key/>\n";


$OUT .= "<Anonymous /home/e-smith/files/ibays/$key/html>\n";

How to install PhpSysInfo in an IBay

(contributed by Martin Elhøj)

1) create a <new> ibay using the server-manager

2) download the latest PhpSysInfo version from into the newly created ibay. If you are using version 2.1 then issue the following commands:

[root@e-smith ]# cd /home/e-smith/files/ibay/<new>/html

[root@e-smith ]# wget

[root@e-smith ]# tar -zxvf phpSysInfo-2.1.tar.gz

A new directory will be created (phpsysinfo-2.1) where an index.php is located.

3)  enable the PHP script to access the /proc directory (where all the fun is...)

[root@e-smith ]# /sbin/e-smith/db accounts setprop <new> PHPBaseDir /home/e-smith/files/ibays/<new>/:/proc

[root@e-smith ]# /sbin/e-smith/signal-event ibay-modify <new>

4) try it out... (<new>/phpsysinfo-2.1/index.php)

An example of PhpSysInfo can be seen here

How to Install Gallery 1.3.3 in an Ibay on SME 5.5


(Heavily based on a HowTo by Dan Brown)


First Install the following RPMs


[root@e-smith ]# rpm –Uvh

[root@e-smith ]# rpm –Uvh

[root@e-smith ]# rpm –Uvh


Now install the jhead binary


[root@e-smith ]# cd /usr/bin

[root@e-smith bin]# wget

[root@e-smith bin]# chmod a+x /usr/bin/jhead


Now you're just about ready to install and configure Gallery.  First, you'll need to create an Ibay in which Gallery should be installed.


Information bay name: gallery
Description: Networked Picture Gallery
Group: everyone
User access: Write=group, Read=everyone
Public access: (As you like it)
Execution of dynamic content: enabled


Now you're ready to install Gallery itself.  Run these commands to prepare the gallery system:


[root@e-smith ]# cd /home/e-smith/files/ibays/gallery/

[root@e-smith gallery]# wget
[root@e-smith gallery]# tar zxf gallery-1.3.3.tar.gz

[root@e-smith gallery]# cd gallery
[root@e-smith gallery]# mv * ../html

[root@e-smith gallery]# cd ..
[root@e-smith gallery]# rm -f gallery-1.3.3.tar.gz

[root@e-smith gallery]# rmdir gallery

[root@e-smith gallery]# cd html

[root@e-smith html]# mkdir albums

[root@e-smith html]# mkdir temp
[root@e-smith html]# chown -R www:www .

[root@e-smith html]# chown -R www temp

[root@e-smith html]# rm –f index.html
[root@e-smith html]# sh


Now allow Gallery to use the jhead from the/usr/bin directory

[root@e-smith html]# /sbin/e-smith/db accounts setprop gallery PHPBaseDir /home/e-smith/files/ibays/gallery/:/usr/bin

[root@e-smith html]# /sbin/e-smith/signal-event ibay-modify gallery



Now point your favorite web browser to http://yourhost.yourdomain/gallery/setup. Go ahead and click the "Configure Gallery" button at the bottom of this page.

On the next page, there are a few items you'll need to enter.  First is the admin password; you may set this to anything you like.  Other things that need setting:


Album directory: /home/e-smith/files/ibays/gallery/html/albums
Albums URL: http://yourhost.yourdomain/gallery/albums

Temporary directory: /home/e-smith/files/ibays/gallery/html/temp


The rest of the defaults should be fine.  Click on the "Album Defaults " button to proceed to the next screen when you can either configure or press “Save Settings”. At this screen, if there are any errors, they will appear in red text.  If there's no red, scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on "Save Config".  At this point, your configuration is complete.  Return to the console (or telnet/ssh app) and do


[root@e-smith html]# sh


You're done!  Point your browser to http://yourhost.yourdomain/gallery, log in as "admin" with the admin password you chose previously, and create some galleries.  Upload some pictures.  Enjoy!
