After you have installed Ubuntu, configure IP address and enable internet access on it.

Now open Terminal Window and issue the below command to install required Modules. but make sure you do update ubuntu  before doing any further process.

Create temp directory where you will download things


mkdir /temp
cd /temp
apt-get update
apt-get install mc wget rcconf make gcc mysql-server mysql-client libmysqlclient15-dev libperl-dev curl php5 php5-mysql php5-cli php5-curl php5-mcrypt php5-gd php5-snmp

### For 32bit Only, download following two items and install them
wget http://www.dmasoftlab.com/cont/download/libltdl3_1.5.24-1ubuntu1_i386.deb
wget http://www.dmasoftlab.com/cont/download/libltdl3-dev_1.5.24-1ubuntu1_i386.deb
dpkg -i libltdl3_1.5.24-1ubuntu1_i386.deb
dpkg -i libltdl3-dev_1.5.24-1ubuntu1_i386.deb

### For 64bit Only, download following two items and install them
wget http://www.dmasoftlab.com/cont/download/libltdl3_1.5.26-1ubuntu1_amd64.deb

TIP:

Review and edit (if required) the MySQL credentials in /usr/local/etc/raddb/sql.conf (Just in case you have mentioned different password/id for mysql)

.

Creating MySQL databases with MySQL command line tool
===============================================

mysql -u root -ppassword

CREATE DATABASE radius;
CREATE DATABASE conntrack;
CREATE USER 'radius'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'yourpass';

.

all-showed

radius-2

radtest

TIPS:

.

Testing Radius via radtest

First edit /etc/hosts

and change the system name to local host ip i.e 127.0.0.1
as showed in the example below. . .

radius-hosts

Don’t forget to restart radiusd after making changes to the NAS list!

service radiusd restart

Now issue following commands to test.


radtest user 1111 127.0.0.1 1812 testing123

and you may see following. (with access-accept)

radius-radtest-OK

Various Errors & Troubleshooting . . .

1# : IF YOU ARE USING CUSTOM PASSWORD (NOT DEFAULT)

If you see the following error while accessing admin.php

Could not connect to localhost

could-not-connect-mysqlsIf you are using your own password (other then default password of rm, ) then Make sure your passwords for radius and conntrack hosts are set correctly in


/etc/radiusmanager.cfg

/var/www/radiusmanager/config/system_cfg.php

/usr/local/etc/raddb/sql.conf

2# :Blank page is showing while accessing admin.php

If you see blank page while accessing admin.php , following could be wrong.
a- Your license files are not valid or expired.
b- you have not installed ioncube library correctly.

To test if your license is valid, tail the /var/log/apache2/access.log and error.log , they will show you if your license have issues like expired or invalid dueto mac address restrictions.

To test IONCUBE LIBRARY , Open Terminal and Type

php -v

& you should see something similar to below . . . (Focus on Last line that says with the ioncube php loader . . .)

root@zaib-desktop:~# php -v

PHP 5.3.2-1ubuntu4.18 with Suhosin-Patch (cli) (built: Sep 12 2012 19:33:42)
 Copyright (c) 1997-2009 The PHP Group
 Zend Engine v2.3.0, Copyright (c) 1998-2010 Zend Technologies
     with the ionCube PHP Loader v4.2.2, Copyright (c) 2002-2012, by ionCube Ltd.

3# : Incorrect User name & Passowrds in Mikrotik LOG

you are seeing ‘Incorrect user name and password error’ in mikrotik logs for the users created on RM, then make sure you have defined correct password in  /usr/local/etc/raddb/sql.conf

4# : NAS NOT FOUND in RADTEST

If you see NAS NOT FOUND in radtest, please see the heading “Testing Radius via radtest“.

If the hostname is different than localhost, (like you have some other hostname name for the machine e.g: radius, then

Edit /etc/hosts

and change the system name to local host ip i.e 127.0.0.1

As showed in the example below . . .

radius-hosts

Don’t forget to restart radiusd after making changes to the NAS list!


service radiusd restart

Part-2 # COMPLETE BACKUP

▼▲▼▲▼▲▼▲▼▲▼▲▼▲▼▲▼▲

Use the following link to get the backup script.

https://aacable.wordpress.com/2011/11/16/dmasoftlab-radius-manager-backup-script/

Or use the manual method

To take full backup use the following.

Create backup folder in root /


 mkdir /backup

Now copy whole contents of following folders ,

/etc
/usr/local
/var/www
/var/lib/mysql



TIP: You can use following commands to copy whole contents and zip it

tar cfz /backup/myrmbackup.tgz /etc /home/root /usr/local /var/www /var/lib/mysql

You can schedule it run on daily basis.

Now Create mysql dump of mysql database of DB RADIUS
(which have RM User and other Data)

mysqldump -u radius -pRADIUSPASSWORD radius > /backup/db_full_type_current_date.sql
gzip -f /backup/db_full_type_current_date.sql

(Tip# To unzip the .gz file, use gzip -d filename.gz )

▼▲▼▲▼▲▼▲▼▲▼▲▼▲▼▲▼▲

Part-3 # RESTORE FROM BACKUP

▼▲▼▲▼▲▼▲▼▲▼▲▼▲▼▲▼▲

If somehow your server crashes, and you got to re-built it from scratch , you can restore the database using below procedure. (To simplify things, use the same OS)

1) Install OS (Same as previous one, in this example Ubuntu)
2) Install RM with the same same config you used for previous installation, e.g: radius db passwords and folders locations
3) Restore all the folders from the backup to there original locations.(backup that taken in part-2 backup part)
by using command in / folder (main root folder)

tar zxvf full_data.tgz (or file name)

4) Now its time to restore mysql radius DB, use the below command to restore DB in mysql.

mysql -u root -prootpassword radius < db_full_type_current_date.sql

Change the db_full_type_current_date.sql to match your mysql backup file.

Now restart your box onc time.

If you receive ‘cannot connect to localhost‘ check the passwords in

/etc/radiusmanager.cfg
/var/www/radiusmanager/config/system_cfg.ph
/usr/local/etc/raddb/sql.conf

Also check the DB password for user radius  in mysql , You can change the DB password via using this command

mysql -u root -pYOURPASSWORD
use mysql;
SET PASSWORD for 'radius'@'localhost' = PASSWORD('radius123');
# MORE EXAMPLE for RADIUS MANAGER RELATED
SET PASSWORD for 'conntrack'@'localhost' = PASSWORD('conn123');


Now restart your box and hopefully everything will be restored back to normal
