Looking for some testers...


Hi there,

I am a member of a project that builds phplogcon, a syslog web viewer, analysis and search tool. We have done a couple of improvements the past months. More exciting work is lying ahead.

We, as a project, would be most interested in any feedback and suggestions as well folks who would like to test. While phpLogCon has various uses, it is also aimed at the enterprise space, thus my posting here. A quick demo can be seen at

http://demo.phplogcon.org

which is a great way for those who can spare a few minutes to provide feedback but would not like to install the tool.

Any feedback is deeply appreciated and will be seriously considered.

Many thanks in advance!

I just had a brief look at it. Tried installing, getting that the file config.php is not writeable on step 2.
Since I am quite sure the file is world writeable, it would be good if we had an option to force the application to go to the next step.

Hi, thanks for trying. Of course, it should go past that Sounds like a silly show-stopper. I'll let the actual developer know and report back when I know whats wrong.

Thanks again,
Rainer

Hi,

phpLogCon uses the is_writeable function to determine if the config.php file is writeable. If this check fails, it wouldn't make sense to skip the check and continue, as the config.php could not be written later.

I assume you are using Fedora (from your profile), I believe this is a feature from SELinux which prevents the apache from writing into files, even if they have chmod 666 set.

I believe this command will make allow apache to write into the folder which contains the config.php (/home/www/phplogcon/ needs to be replaced with your path):

Code:
chcon -h -t httpd_sys_script_rw_t /home/www/phplogcon/
best regards,
Andre Lorbach

Yup, you were right. I had selinux running, I didnt even notice. Sorry for the trouble that this might have caused.

Hi,

I am glad it works now. I have also added a reference to the SeLinux setting to the phpLogCon wiki. I would appreciate any feedback you have. This would be most valuable in guiding us towards a great version.
