SME User-Manager

The Dungog User-Manager system allows an administrator to delegate access to the Server-Manager, plus it provides some extra functionality provided in separate modules (RPM packages).


As root install the base plus modules of your choice:

yum --enablerepo=smecontribs install smeserver-userpanel smeserver-userpanels smeserver-vacation

You may not need to reboot as it suggests, but it would be a good idea if it's after hours.

Here are some of the GPL'd modules available:

  • smeserver-remoteuseraccess
    • combined shell access & chroot ftp
  • smeserver-userpanel
    • just the userpanel
  • smeserver-userpanels
    • panels for forwarding, password, backup, useraccounts
  • smeserver-vacation
    • server-manager & user-manager panels
  • smeserver-mailsorting
    • procmail & maildrop userpanels
  • smeserver-dansguardian
    • daemontools /init / squid / masq files


Once you finish the installation, open the Server-Manager and look for the new User Panel Access option under Security.

You'll need to configure what panels you want to make available to whom.  I suggest changing the Global setting to allow access to the following:

  • userpanel-password
  • userpanel-forwarding
  • userpanel-vacation

Then just publish this URL to all users:


Modify User-Manager Panel

I don't even remember why I wanted to do this...
