Automated installation Script For DMASOFTLAB RADIUS MANAGER v4.1 in CENTOS

Filed under: Linux Related — Tags: — Syed Jahanzaib / Pinochio~:) @ 10:49 AM


[As demanded by few Humans 😉 ]

Following is an customized script to install DMASOFTLAB Radius Manager ver 4.1 in CENTOS 6.x / 32bit

The aim of writing this script was to save some time and efforts every time I put in new RM installation. Since DMA don’t have any official support forum (except for there email support which is valid for paid customers only) , so I thought it might be helpful for others too  by sharing this info 🙂

I know very well that It is not a perfect script, it can be very well shorten as per the requirement, but still it does it’s job very nicely with out any user intervention 🙂

Suggestions are most welcome at  . . .
aacable @ hotmail . com


1- Fresh Installation of CENTOS 6.x 32bit  (script is well tested with 6.6 edition 32bit edition only)

2- good Internet access, off course ; )

3- Valid License files provided by DMASOFTLAB , valid with your physical (or virtual) interface MAC address [You can upload your license files in /temp folder as this script will try to copy the 2 licenses files required [lic.txt and mod.txt] from temp folder to appropriate place.


What components does this script add to the system ?

This script will install following in your system. (as per order nos.)

> Disable iptables service , ipv6 and selinux in centos

> Download Radius Manager from remote location (preferably Google Drive, adjustable in the script)

> Install necessary components like mysql , apache2, php5 etc

> Download and install dmasoftlab required components like libltd* , IONCUBE and add its entries in Apache’s php config file

> Download and compile freeradius-server-2.2.0-dma-patch-2 package

> Add Radius & Conntrack DB in mysql suing CLI (I have configured default password for mysql which is ‘zaib1234′ , you can change it later)

> Extract Radius Manager Installation file & install it accordingly.

> Restart Services like apache2, mysql, radius



Before accessing RM ACP , make sure you upload valid LICENSE files in /var/www/html/radiusmanager folder

2- This script will set mysql password to “zaib1234″ , you can change it later.

How-to Execute The Script  !!

There are several ways to do it, one is explained below . . .

Create a new script

touch /
chmod +x /
vi /

Now copy paste the following code.

Save & Exit …



Now execute the script by



After the script ends, do make sure that you don’t see any Error’s  on the installation. Thats why I have added 3 Seconds delay in few section so you can view the results.

Now UPLOAD your valid License into /var/www/radiusmanager OTEHRWISE YOU WILL SEE BLANK PAGE ON ACCESSING RM ADMIN PANEL.


Now try to access RM ACP via browser by



If you get blank page, then use tail command to view Apache error log , example

tail -f /var/log/apache2/error.log


OR more specifically

tail -f /var/log/apache2/error.log |grep lic


If you see any error like showed in the image below . . . (for not valid license), then make sure your license files are valid for right version and with the right mac address interface.





To deploy Radius Manager Patch 5 (4.1.5) , Kindly see the following Link

I will add few snapshots and video as soon as I get some time.
