In-place upgrades are not supported. It is necessary to backup and then restore. (Remember, testing purpose only and note warnings),

Restore of a sme9 console or workstation backup is now fully supported

Single disk install no longer creates a degraded Raid1 array, Two or more disks will be created as a Raid1-6 array, see wiki

The spare handling for RAID arrays is now implemented.

Support for further Raid configuration on install is now implemented - see wiki

New Server-Manager Framework, Mojolicious, is now well on the way to full implementation

USB installs are once again fully supported, Note: it is important to use proposed apps to create the boot media See:

Netinstall is once again fully supported, additional repos easily added

Install to a system supporting a UEFI BIOS is also now fully supported

Console backup, and workstation backup to removable storages is now fully supported.


A plethora of other under the hood changes, too numerous to list

The work that has gone into getting SME 10 to this stage has been enormous, an attempt to list and detail the work that has been done in recent months would not do justice to the effort contributed by the following,

Thank you one and all:

  • Jean Phillipe Pialasse
  • Michel Begue
  • Brian Read
  • Catton Durbrow
  • Chris Sansom-Ninnes
  • Jean-pierre Odion
  • Zsolt Vasarhelyi
  • John Crisp
  • Terry Fage

there have also been many others who have done what they can, thank you:

The changes that have been implemented to ensure the Koozali Sme Server way is fully implemented have been far reaching, far to many to try and list, suffice to say long live "Justine".


Hardware requirements

Installation procedure


Important.png Note:
In-place upgrades from SME 9.# to SME 10.x using yum or CD are not supported due to design constraints imposed by CentOS.

It is necessary to backup the old server & then restore to the new server. Contribs will need to be reinstalled.

The simplest way to do this is via a Console Backup to attached USB disk on the old server( or if using a virtual machine, and USB is no t available, you can try adding a virtual drive as SATA). Alternatively use one of the Backup & Restore options available in server manager panel, ie backup to desktop, or backup to workstation (either to attached USB or network share). Other non standard options exist to Backup virtual servers that do not have USB ports etc, & Restore to similar virtual systems, eg using ssh. If you have a lot of contribs that have files to backup that are not in standard backup, you can give a try to Migratehelper.

Information.png Tip:
The Restore from USB on first boot function (on a newly installed SME 10 server), will only utilise backups that are saved as smeserver.tgz files, which are the Console backup to USB or the server manager backup to Desktop. The server manager backup to Workstation (either to USB or network share) creates a "backupdate.dar" type filename (or multiple split parts) & cannot be used to restore using the Restore on first boot function, it can only be used for restores from server manager.

Information.png Tip:
After a Restore to new hardware, networking may not be functional. This is caused by the restored NIC settings being incorrect for the NIC's in the new hardware. To fix this, login as admin & from the console menu select Configure this server. Step through the screens & choose the new hardware network card (NIC) drivers, & leave other settings unchanged.

Upgrade via Console backup to USB drive

  • Log in as admin & Backup the old server via a Console Backup to attached USB disk. This may take many hours if you have a lot of data on your server, depending on USB port speed, USB drive speed, & types of files being backed up ie whether already compressed or not etc. Typically for 250Gb of data on your server hard drive, 2 to 4 hours.
  • Install the SME 10.x OS from CD on the new hardware (on new server).
  • Select to do a Restore on first boot of the newly installed SME Server 10. Only attach USB containing the backup file, when asked on first reboot. Restore may take a few hours depending on data size etc. Make sure you wait for the Restore complete message.
  • If necessary use the consol to adjust some parameters, e.g. network cards and network addressé This will be needed particularly if you have the old SME9 still running at the same IP, or simply if you install on new hardware to make your restored configuration aware of this new hardware.
  • A reboot is necessary after the restore, even if you did not alter the configuration, to have all services running as planned, failure to do so will leave you with only standard services running.

Information.png Tip:
You can dismiss the restore from USB on initial boot and access it later from the console as long as you do not create new group on you freshly intalled SME10.x.

Upgrade via server manager backup to Desktop or Workstation (USB or network)

  • On the old server in server manager, configure the required backup in the Backup or Restore panel. Schedule the backup to run at a suitable time. This backup can be to a workstation desktop for systems with a smaller amount of data, which creates a smeserver.tgz backup file, or to a locally connected USB drive or to a network share, & creates xx...xx.dar files, split into multiple parts if configured & data size is large. This may take many hours to run depending on data size etc.
  • On the new SME10 server, manually configure the identical backup job in the server manager Backup or Restore panel. The backup job MUST point to the exact same location that the original backup file is saved to.
  • Select the Restore function within server manager & select the full backup you want to restore from. This may take many hours to run depending on data size, network speed etc. Make sure you wait for the Restore complete message.
  • Basic networking configuration of the new and/or restored SME10 server will be required if different from original server.

Upgrade using command line restore via ssh or USB

  • It is possible to use the command line to transfer a backup file via ssh (or USB) to the new server & then to run the restore. Standard & non standard backup concepts & procedures are outlined in the Backup server config Howto, If using any non standard method, then the integrity of your SME server data cannot be guaranteed.
  • To do a standard backup & restore using CLI, on the old server log in as admin & perform the Console Backup to USB drive (to a locally connected USB). Alternatively using suitable commands, a smeserver.tgz backup file could be created & saved to / folder, refer Howto.
  • Install the SME 10.x OS from CD on the new hardware (on new server).
  • Answer No when asked if you want to restore from USB during the first boot.

  • If you created or have the backup file on the old server, transfer the smeserver.tgz backup file via ssh from your old server to your new server. Both servers must be connected & remote access enabled
  • On the old server do:
scp -P zzzz /smeserver.tgz newserverIP:/

(where zzzz = port number)

  • If you saved the backup file to USB, then transfer the smeserver.tgz backup file from USB to your new server
  • Log in as root or a root user on the new server & do:
mount /media/usbdisk
cp /media/usbdisk/Backup-date-folder/smeserver.tgz /

(replace usbdisk with actual mount point name & Backup-date-folder with actual folder date name)

  • After the backup file has been copied to the new server, on the new server do:
cd /
signal-event pre-restore
tar -C / -xzvf smeserver.tgz
/sbin/e-smith/signal-event post-upgrade
/sbin/e-smith/signal-event reboot
  • Before restarting the new server, disconnect old server from network (as you will have clashes due to duplicate IPs)
  • On new server do:
cd /
rm smeserver.tgz
  • Note the backup & restore may take many hours to complete depending on data size etc.
  • After restore, the Configuration of the new server should be identical to the old server.
  • Note with two servers connected during ssh copying operations, basic networking configuration of the new unrestored SME9 server will need to be temporarily different to the old server to avoid clashes

Reinstall Contribs after restore

Add on contrib rpm packages will need to be re-installed on the new SME 9.x server as these are NOT included in the backup. Contrib data & configuration is included in backups & will be restored, but its usefulness will depend on the contrib design being unchanged between older (SME7/el4 or SME8/el5) & SME9/el6 package versions.

Delete & Reconfigure Manual tweaks

Other manual tweaks eg custom templates or scripts, will need to be deleted & recreated in line with SME 10.x template code & base code.

Where extensive modifications have been made to the "old server (eg SME9.2)", it is recommended to carry out a test backup & restore upgrade first, to discover any problems & ascertain suitable fixes & workarounds. Removing contribs & custom templates before upgrading is recommended.

Known issues upgrade from SME9

I can not ssh/rsync/scp/sshfs from my SME9 to SME10 to migrate

A the reason is we enforced only stronger ciphers as default in /etc/ssh/ssh_config. Short way is to add a supported cipher on both systems :aes256-ctr, aes192-ctr or aes128-ctr

[root@mySME9]#ssh root@mysme10 -c aes256-ctr
[root@mySME9]#sshfs -o Ciphers=aes256-ctr root@mysme10:/media/extra /mnt/backup/
[root@mySME9]#rsync  -e "ssh -c aes256-ctr" -av /var/spool/spamd/ root@mysme10:/var/spool/spamd/
[root@mySME9]#scp -c aes256-ctr  /etc/zabbix/zabbix_agentd.conf root@
High CPU load for ssl-param /dovecot on initial boot

A 4096 Diffie-Hellman parameter is being generated on first launch of dovecot which handles IMAP and POP access. Depending on your CPU and entropy availability, this could take up to 48 hours, if you reboot the job will restart until completion.

No access to http or server-manager

We stopped using PHP module for apache, and switched to php-fpm. If you left any templates-custom including options related to php module, please remove them and restart httpd-e-smith.

mkdir /root/httpd.conf
mv /etc/e-smith/templates-custom/etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf /root/httpd.conf/
systemctl restart httpd-e-smith.service

You can generally debug issues with httpd by issuing the following command, this will output what is wrong in the file

httpd -t

and you can then to a a search with the pattern of the error pointed to find what fragment seems problematic

grep -r "pattern"  /etc/e-smith/templates-custom/etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf
I need a newer/supported version of PHP

Command line interface reports:

# php -v
PHP 5.4.16 (cli) (built: Apr  1 2020 04:07:17) 

But apache uses by default php-fpm with version PHP 7.4. Also, please note that PHP 5.4 provided with SME 10 is still maintained by Red-Hat as they backport every security patches.

I can not access to my ibay from my windows XP

Windows XP and Windows 7 are software no longer supported by Microsoft, you are encouraged to migrate. That said, they are expecting the SMB1 protocol, and SME 10 uses SMB2 and SMB3. A workaround could be to allow SMB1 on the server using the correct property in the configuration, but this is at your own risks.

I can navigate to my server using its ip, but the netbios name does not work, and it does not show in my network

Netbios is deprecated and is part of the SMB1 protocol. You can workaround that using the contrib WSSD See

I am not able to update - I get some el6 packages proposed to be part of the updates

There are chances you have some old el6 centos6 rhel6 repos still configured. Start with this :

yum update smeserver-yum --disablerepo=* --enablerepo=smeos,smeupdates
signal-event yum-modify

If the issue remains, then check your configured repo, remove those with reference to 6.

db yum_repositories print
db yum_repositories delete repoForEL6

And install them using the extrarepositories packages

db yum_repositories show
I am not able to update and yum seems to try to resolve to ip v6

You have network connectivity issue or most probably dns issue. start with simple tests to more complexes. First you need to use plain ip, to exclude dns issues.

Do I have access to my ISP or to my local gateway in case something else is doing the gateway on my LAN

 ping your.gate.way.ip

Do I have access to the internet. Try a ping to a known IP.

# ping
PING ( 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from icmp_seq=1 ttl=58 time=6.11 ms

Is DNS working ?

# dig +short
# dig +short

Then fix your network/dns

Impossible to install got error ValueError: name already in use

This is because you already have a SME 9 (most probably) installation on your disk with LVM. To avoid this, either boot in rescue mode to wipe the partition, either use the partitioning tool at screen 2 to create your own partition. Beware auto partitioning at this stage is not SME with raid or other options you had chosen but default CentOS ie EFI if needed, boot and one huge LVM with all the remaining space on ALL disks include

I do not have the default raid 1 after the server installed as I expected; I have set default partitioning in the gui

Beware auto partitioning in the installer GUI is not SME with raid or other options you had chosen at boot time but default CentOS ie EFI if needed, boot and one huge LVM with all the remaining space on ALL disks include. Going into the partitioning tool will erase all previous settings chosen at boot time of the installer for SME.

Known issues updating from SME10.0

Unable to access to a specific folder in my ibay using http

We used to rely heavily on mod_compat with SME10.0 to keep the exact same acccess syntax as SME9 and httpd 2.2. This seemed to be an easy and simple solution but this leads to multiple issues:

  1. few web projects use httaccess testing for presence of mod_authz_core (httpd 2.4 auth module), and force the new syntax, leading to conlfict between old and new syntax
  2. conflicts between two syntaxes adds warnings in error+log which are interpreted as attack by fail2ban and can blacklist the client
  3. conflicts between old syntax and new syntax can lead to unexpected behaviour : one could get access to something he should not have and opposite is also possibleé

We then move all core and contribs syntax to the new mod_authz_core, we however left the mod_access_compat enabled so if httpd still encounter old syntax in your custom template or httacces it does not fails to start and let you some access, but you need to check your templates-custom fragments and htaccess files to be sure all is safe.

A good resource on how to migrate syntaxes is available here:

While the generik rule will be to check for the old syntax and replace with new one, the red alert is if one sees any "mod_access_compat.c", you need to understand the logic used and replace it carefully.

you really need to replace any occurrence this way

<IfModule mod_access_compat.c> 


<IfModule !mod_authz_core.c>

In other words :

<IfModule mod_authz_core.c>
   #httpd 2.4 auth module
   Order Allow,Deny
   Deny from all
<IfModule mod_access_compat.c>
    # mod compat is enabled here so this will be interpreted and lead issue

should become

<IfModule mod_authz_core.c>
    # Apache 2.4
    Require all denied
<IfModule !mod_authz_core.c>
   # Apache 2.2 
   Order Allow,Deny
   Deny from all

All occurences not inside a <IfModule !mod_authz_core.c> </IfModule> block should be converted this way:

Order Allow,Deny => 
Order Deny,Allow => 
Deny from all => Require all denied
Allow from x.x.x.x => Require ip x.x.x.x
Allow from all => Require all granted
Require valid-user => Require valid-user
Require user admin => Require user admin

The situation more complex arise about the

Satisfy ANY
Allow from
Require user admin
Satisfy ALL
Allow from
Require user admin

Any is the default with new syntax so you can safely remove it, unless you have really specific needs which were not available with old syntax. However, you can implement it this way

  Require ip
  Require user admin

And witht he ALL situation

  Require ip
  Require user admin

detect where something need to be changed in my ibays
find /home/e-smith/files/ibays/ -iname .htaccess  |xargs  egrep "allow|deny|order|satisfy|mod_access_compat.c"  -i --color=auto
detect where something need to be changed in my templates-custom fragments
egrep "allow|deny|order|satisfy|mod_access_compat.c"  -i --color=auto -r /etc/e-smith/templates-custom/etc/httpd/conf/
Access to a specific folder in my ibay using http while I should not be able to access it

please refer to SME_Server:10.1#Unable_to_access_to_a_specific_folder_in_my_ibay_using_http

Known issues using ISO installer

Raid 1

SME10 does not handle anymore degraded RAID1 on initial install due to limitations with new version of installation software Anaconda and blivet.

My two disks ended up as a huge LVM virtual disk

This occured with 10.0 installer, if you entered the utility disk on second screen. This erased the default SME partitionning set at the kickstart stage, and load the CentOS default partitionning. We workaround that, while we suggest you not to enter this utility unless you really want to make your own specific partitionning, if you do hit the autopartitionning utility then you will now ends up with all available disk inside a LVM volume, but at least no /home partition created.

Installer crashes on first GUI screen

This could occurs on some specific network settings (dhcp or not, slow access) with virtual machines. Try installing without enabling the network, or changing the devices you set for your virtual machine in proxmox.

netinstall ends up with a Centos minimal

Because of limitations with timeouts implemented in repo initialization, we are not able to left the SME install enabled by default, if we do that on slow connexions you will end up with a fatal error preventing you to actually install anything. Because of that, unless you use your own kickstart, using the GUI installer on the netinstall ISO , you need on the second screen to enter in the menu select packages to install and select minimal install.

See also AddExtraHardDisk if you think you might use RAID1 one day. But it's an alternative for part of the date. Best solution is to reinstall SME10 with 2 drives.
