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.


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.


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

repeater@repeater:~$ sudo apt install git
repeater@repeater:~$ sudo git clone /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


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=
  3. Change: passwd=yourpassword
  4. (note: 'llcgi' is the default password acording to the initial node setup)
  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>.

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

Test and Use

Using your web browser go to:

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


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 the following line: = 2

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