Alpha 10:
The latest version of smeserver-manager is available in the SME repository, click on the version number(s) for more information.


smeserver-manager is a new version of SME administration manager (e-smith-manager). It is built on Mojolicious, a real-time web framework and provides at least the functions of the original manager in an analogous presentation with however a different user interface. It has the advantage of being much more evolutionary.


yum --enablerepo=[smetest,]smedev install smeserver-manager [smeserver-manager-locale-xx] [smeserver-manager-AdminLTE] 


smeserver-manager-locale-xx for an additionnal language (still incomplete),
smeserver-manager-AdminLTE for a more sophisticated theme.

you may want to install jquery for better responsiveness (in this case put it before),

yum --enablerepo=epel install js-jquery

If you install jquery after smeserver-manager, you will have to manually add the link to jquery like this:

ln -s /usr/share/javascript/jquery/latest/jquery.min.js %{dir_mngr}/themes/default/public/js/jquery.min.js

and also:

expand-template /usr/share/smanager/conf/srvmngr.conf 
signal-event smanager-modify

then log to your new server-manager : https://hostname/smanager and use it as the other manager.

Systemctl service

smanager is the hypnotoad service managed by systemctl. The initialization phase of smanager defines the parameters taken into account. With each modification a reload is necessary.

systemctl reload smanager

Adjustments and checks

the two 'mode' and 'debug' parameters can be manually modified to view the process and in case of a crash. They are in the file: /usr/share/smanager/conf/srvmngr.conf change 'mode' value to 'development' and/or 'debug' to 1.

reload the service the service

The log informations are in /usr/share/smanager/log/{production|development}.log depending on current mode. Other informations are classically found in /var/log/httpd or using

systemctl status -l smanager


Some contributions are already adapted to this new version and will be automatically integrated as soon as they are installed. Their numbers should continue to grow.

There is a wiki document here which describes the process you might go through to convert an existing contrib to one that integrates with Server manager 2. It uses the DHCPManager contrib as an example.


yum remove smeserver-manager js-jquery
