  • Again, have you ever registered your server? ClearOS is affiliated with ClearFoundation, although it's not a supported distro anymore. You can login to your account at here and see your system details and subscription(s). They haven't shut any of that down, even though they're no longer supporting the distro. It's up to you if you want to maintain a subscription that's no longer maintained by the distro. I walked away from it because of the latter. I keep revisiting the forum to keep tabs on it. It was always a great package. Maybe it will be again some day.

  • Pretty sure you have to maintain a subscription to access the marketplace and antimalware definition updates, if you're a business. I'm not so sure about the community edition since I haven't used that in a while. I don't think COS is maintaining updates though, so I don't know if it's worth maintaining a subscription. Have you tried registering your system under the Webconfig>System>Settings>System Registration?

    How can you say Nethserver is rubbish, when it doesn't appear as if you've tried it? I run a website as well as a Nextcloud server for my business on an NS box. It has worked good from the get-go. I have extensive experience over the years with COS. I've got nearly a year of experience with Nethserver. While I would rather not have abandoned COS, NS has been a great alternative. Why would I support a project (i.e., COS) whose founders look to have abandoned it (all signs pointing to it anyway)? I was a paid business subscriber and feel put out.

  • Switch slowly over to other distros and one Nethserver 8 is a stable release i'll switch over the last packages


    I occasionally come back to the forum to see if there's any progress with moving forward with COS.

    I am one of the many disappointed. It was a very good product. I have switched over to Nethserver after hearing about it on this forum. It's a real nice alternative to COS, with a good support staff and community forum (just like Clark Connect and COS used to be). Clark Connect is what got me into home and business gateway servers. I recommend Nethserver as an alternative,

  • What ports do you have open on your incoming firewall? You'll want 80, 81, and 443 for HTTP, Webconfig, and HTTPS access on the WAN side. If your server is in Standalone mode, you wouldn't have to worry about internal traffic. If it's in Gateway mode, you can use custom firewall rules to block LAN traffic.

    Thanks again Dirk. Re-install went OK as did the restart. Some logs are already updating, will wait a few days before checking the remaining ones.

    Re: Logs Frozen


    Will I break anything if I reinstall rsyslog?


    Shouldn't...



    You can find your logs in /var/log. You can manually rotate your logs using for example, which would rotate your cron, maillog, messages, secure, and spooler logs. Other logs that can be rotated in said fashion can be found in /etc/logrotate.d.

    What do you get at your shell prompt when you check the service?

    Dirk Albring replied to a discussion, Where's the GUI on ClearOS?

    It's actually a very nice server package. I've been using it for years. Using apps like Putty and WinSCP allow you to remotely perform commands at the command line and edit script in all your files, albeit it's easy to break things if you're not careful. That's why we back things up. There is great documentation available at ClearOS's documentation site to familiarize yourself and learn how to navigate the server and its packages. This forum is a wealth of knowledge as well.
