    Hi,

    I'm just getting back into lunix, and playing with freeradius. I have downloaded and installed freeradius2.0.2, and mysql. I have followed the install instructions for ezradius and when i log in i get directed to user.php.

    What am i doing wrong ?

    Thanks
    Ken

      Hi Ken

      When i get home i'll have a closer look at your problem

      The program has been designed to redirect a "first time logon" to the setup page (can't remember if that is user.php or not) Unfortunately i have found the redirct to work only sometimes, but this is not a big problem.

      When in the setup page you need to enter sql and freeradius user names and passwords etc etc

      I note that you are using freeradius 2.0.2, i don't think that version has been tested yet.

      what version of linux are you using just for interest!

      What version of ezradius did you downloaded?

      As per ispyisail said, you are not doing wrong. You'll redirected to config page for the first time.
      But it's weird that ezradius does not have file named user.php. Please consider downloading ezradius-commercial.

      I'm using 2.6.23.1-42.fc8, and i downloaded ezradius-commercial....

      So if user.php is not the setup page, how do i get to it ?

      thanks

        Umm

        Redhat, from my understanding redhat/fedora/mandriva etc has quite a different file structure to debian/ubuntu.

        If you have followed the instructions implicitly it probably won't work.

        For example, the default Debian web directory is /etc/var/www, I think redhat uses a different directory?

        Of coarse your Linux skills could be far greater than mine and you could have made allowances for this?

        Can you give us more information about your setup?

        I assume you have copied to ezradius files to you apache web server directory

        Set the permissions correctly

        Then connected to ezradius using your web browser
        http://server_ip_address/ezradius-comm

        At that point it will as you for a username and password
        admin
        admin

        Then you should be directed to either the "ezradius main page" or "setup page"

        Is this close to your experience?

        Hi

        I've done some quick research on Fedora and apache

        Looks very simlar to debian

        http://www.brennan.id.au/13-Apache_Web_Server.html#config

        Its looks like the default web directory is: /var/www/html

          Hi,

          Yes i have moved the files into /var/www/html and i've been connecting to localhost:8000

          Would i not have to set something up to be able to connect to localhost/ezradius-comm
          plus i dont see a html or php file of that name?

      hi

      Q. Yes i have moved the files into /var/www/html and i've been connecting to localhost:8000
      A. ? It would be good to see a screen shot or more information on this statement!

      Q. Would i not have to set something up to be able to connect to localhost/ezradius-comm
      A. No

      Q. plus i dont see a html or php file of that name?
      A. What name?

      All you need to do is copy the ezradius files to the correct directory then open the correct link in your web browser e.g http://localhost/ezradius-comm/index.php

      I've put some screen shots and comments on the ezradius wiki trying to help solve your problem

      http://ezradius.wiki.sourceforge.net/

      Have a look at the support links

      note its a wiki so if you see any errors or you have some ideas please add them

      in normal condition, you should not use port other than 8000 for http connection.

      please access http://localhost/ and we want to see the screenshot to make sure that you have apache configured properly.
      You may post screenshot in Tracker->Bugs
