In the transition from ADSL to an Oz nbn HFC connection*, I've completely stuffed the IP settings part of the GUI on my gateway and mail server.

I've done a configuration restore, but whenever I try to change a network parameter, I get an HTTP 500 error.

On the server itself, i get a blank screen when I press F2 for a GUI.

Can some kind soul steer me towards a solution here?

Ideally I'd like the box back doing it's gateway, DHCP, DNS and mail roles, but if push comes to shove I could live with just the mail server part as a standalone server on the LAN. FWIW, I have several Gigabytes of mail I really need to retain and have access to.

*My provider requires me to log in using PPPoE with a VLAN tag. Their modem doesn't come with a manual, and it's connection log suggests there's a fair bit of alchemy in play as they also provide VOIP with it.

    What changes have you done at the command line which may have inflicted this error?

    Perhaps what you can do is enable webconfig debugging:
    touch /var/log/webconfig/debug.log
    chown webconfig:webconfig /var/log/webconfig/debug.log
    touch /etc/clearos/webconfig.debug
    Then visit the IP settings screen. Once you get the HTTP500, delete or rename /etc/clearos/webconfig.debug to stop the debugging, then have a look at /var/log/webconfig/debug.log for clues.

    Did you try changing any of the app-network php code, e/g adding the one line for kernel mode PPPoE?

    Also as a lateral jump, what is your version of app-network ("rpm -q app-network")? It should be "app-network-2.6.0-4.v7.noarch".
