APT-GET Package pending for ASL1.10

Allmon is a web site for managing one or more app_rpt (aka Allstar) nodes.
Each managed local node shows a list of connected nodes. The list is
sorted in reverse order of the most recently received node. So the last
node to talk is always at the top of the list. Any node that is currently
being received will be highlighted by a green background as well as moving
to the top of the list. The node list is updated once a second giving near-
real-time status.

Nodes may be grouped together when configuring Allmon. Groups enable two
or mode nodes to be displayed on the same page. This can be handy if you
use devices with smaller screens or you want to see a couple of your nodes
at the same time. Don't try to display more than a few per group as performance
will suffer.

Logged in users can perform connect and disconnects. Users are maintained
with the Apache htpasswd utility. There is only one login level, admin.

Allmon will also monitor VOTER clients. Each VOTER instance displays a list
attached Radio Thin Client Modules (RTCM). The RSSI for each RTCM is displayed
in bar graph style along with a color to indicate the currently voted RTCM.

Installation

The first thing to do is to log on your node as user 'repeater' command line, you can log in with a keyboard and monitor or using SSH as in the initial node setup.

repeater@repeater:~$

Once you are there you have to type the following commands:

repeater@repeater:~$ sudo apt install git
repeater@repeater:~$ sudo git clone https://github.com/AllStarLink/AllMon2.git /var/www/html/allmon2
repeater@repeater:~$ cd /var/www/html/allmon2
repeater@repeater:~$ sudo mv allmon.ini.txt allmon.ini.php
repeater@repeater:~$ sudo mv controlpanel.ini.txt controlpanel.ini.php

Configuration

Now you have to edit the allmon.ini.php file

repeater@repeater:~$ sudo nano allmon.ini.php

  1. Change: the '500' number [500] to your node number.
  2. Change: host=127.0.0.1:5038
  3. Change: passwd=yourpassword
  4. Note: 'llcgi' is the default password according to the initial node setup. However look at 'secret = xxxxx' in /etc/asterisk/manager.conf to be sure of the correct password.
  5. Change: menu=yes

After making your changes type <CTRL> + <X> and then type <Y> followed by <Enter>. You will be back to the previous menu and choose <Back>.

Example almond.ini.php with node(s) listed under a menu item. In this example named MySites.

[1234]
system=MySites
host=127.0.0.1
user=admin
passwd=yourpassword
nomenu=yes
[1234 My Node]
system=MySites
nodes=1234
[1234 My Node RTCM]
system=MySites
rtcmnode=1234

[1235]
system=MySites
host=127.0.0.1
user=admin
passwd=yourpassword
nomenu=yes
[1235 Another Node]
system=MySites
nodes=2510

Password to Enable Buttons and Control Panel

While in the /var/www/html/allmon2 directory

repeater@repeater:~$ htpasswd -cB .htpasswd admin
repeater@repeater:~$ chmod 777 astdb.php

Note: don't use an exclamation mark in the .htpasswd password.

Test and Use

Using your web browser go to:

Note: 192.168.x.x is your nodes IP.

http://192.168.x.x/allmon2

There you can login with the user 'admin' and your password 'yourpassword' or remember default password is 'llcgi'.

Lighttpd Notes

If you are using Lighttpd, you must modify your configuration to work with Allmon2.

Add

server.stream-response-body = 2

to /etc/lighttpd/lighttpd.conf and restart lighttpd.
