Updating version via console/shell?



  • Well, I'm currently locked out of my webGUI once I upgraded to 0.94.14, and I wanted to try 0.94.16 without having to install from LiveCD.

    Is this possible?





  • Mental note, search wiki first before posting….thanks :)



  • np  ;D



  • Damn, still no webGUI for me…..(updated to version 0.94.18)

    So I can use the 'fetch -o' command to copy a backup config to the pfSense in the same way I guess....cool.

    Try resetting the lan ip to switch the web server back to HTTP if its in HTTPS.

    We switched to LightyHTTPD.  There is a reason I haven't released these new versions…



  • that did it, thank you.



  • @thinair:

    that did it, thank you.

    So does HTTPS not work?



  • I just tried re-enabling it and I'm locked out again.  I'm going to try 0.94.20 that was just posted in the /~sullrich directory.

    It's not done uploading!



  • hmmm, I wonder what I just downloaded then…..



  • @thinair:

    An incomplete version.  It's now uploaded.

    I really should know, its my home directory.



  • I wasn't trying to be sarcastic, I sincerly wondered what I had downloaded.  I didn't know the link for a file showed up in the directory as soon as you start uploading.  I'm a windows guy who is used to windows caching everything…anyway.

    Ok, 0.94.20 updated, http works, https doesn't.

    Ok, thanks.  Will look into the https issues.



  • HTTPS is fixed as of 0.95



  • Thank you, it works.

    As a side note, as of 0.94.18, the 'Configuring OPT interfaces' no longer takes 3-5 minutes, it's just a few seconds and continues to load.  Thanks for that too.

    Good deal.  Please excercise the GUI as much as possible.  Try to "crash" it.



  • Well, here is my list i guess

    • On the 'Diagnostics: Show States' page, i have to scroll all the way to the bottom of the page to see the states table.
    • unchecking the 'Disable NAT Reflection' box still messes up all http traffic going out.
    • the ntop service turns itself off for some reason

    I suppose only the first is the a webGUI issue, and cosmetic at that.

    And a question, you decide if it's webGUI related.  On the logs settings page, when I click 'Disable writing log files to the local disk', it doesn't hold the entries in RAM at all?  It basically disables logging unless you have a syslog server setup?

    1. please take a screen shot
    2. you have some nat rule stepping on reflection, need to identify it, i cannot reporduce this
    3. look in system logs for ntop entries
    4. yes, it will not write entries at all

    Grrr..  I hate IE.

    I'll look into it.



  • @sullrich:

    3. look in system logs for ntop entries

    Looks like it gets killed due to lack of RAM (128MB), I didn't create a swap partition due to the CF card.  I didn't think ntop was such a memory hog, I usually have under 40% memory usage with it off.

    I gotta stop asking questions I can find answers to….
    Sorry, but thanks.
