We no longer use this web-interface. It is provided here for anyone who may find it useful.

FAI can log progress of client installations through faimond. The usual way of monitoring this logfile is with faimond-gui. Some people might prefer a web-interface, which is why we wrote one.

How to install it?

Get the mon.php file (you'll need to rename it, sorry). There are a couple of places you might want to change things:

  • $filename='/var/log/faimond.log';

    [line 3] - your faimond might log elsewhere.

  • $n=(array_key_exists('rows',$_REQUEST)?0+$_REQUEST['rows']:60);

    [line 4] - that 60 represents the initial number of rows to list from your logfile. You might prefer more.

  • $url='https://INFOSERVER/?HOST='.$host;

    [line 70] - I think you'll need to change that if you want the links to take you somewhere sensible.

You'll also want the CSS to make it look pretty and some images - I symlink to files in the oxygen icon set with:
