How to Fix Problems in Installing "YFI Hotspot Manager"

YFI hotspot manager error
What do you think about the picture above ?  Yes. The login administrator yfi hotspot manager but there's no box username and password. Did you ever get an error like the picture above?  For me, the error like picture above, appear many times. I have collected many kinds of errors of installing YFI Hotspot Manager and how to fix it. This is all I got when I tried YFI Hotspot manager installation in Ubuntu 12:10 / 13:04, fedora 18/19 and centos 6.4. Do not be afraid, because of these errors. At the time of installation you will not get this much errors, (probably only get 1 or 2 errors only). You even probably will not get an error, if you follow the tutorial how to installing yfi hotspot manager correctly, and carefully. Especially following the tutorial from me ... hahaha ...

Remember this.
Sometimes when you have run the command to correct the error,  nothing can change. Still error / problem. This is because the permission of the selinux.  Make sure, you have disable selinux.
Edit /etc/selinux/config
SELINUX=disabled
Let's look at a list of errors and how to fix it.

01. Error. No login and password box
Situation. When browse to http://<your-ip-address>/yfi
There’s logo yfi hotspot manager, but there’s no login and password box.
YFI hotspot manager error
And then when browse to http:// http://<your-ip-address>/c2/yfi_cake/users/login
Not Found
The requested URL /c2/yfi_cake/users/login was not found on this server.


Apache/2.2.22 (Ubuntu) Server at 10.1.1.242 Port 80


How to Fix
In Ubuntu, edit /etc/apache2/apache2.conf
vim  /etc/apache2/apache2.conf
        <Directory  /var/www/c2>
        AllowOverride All
        </Directory>
        #-------COMPRESS CONTENT-----------
        # place filter 'DEFLATE' on all outgoing content
        SetOutputFilter DEFLATE
        # exclude uncompressible content via file type
        SetEnvIfNoCase Request_URI \.(?:exe|t?gz|jpg|png|pdf|zip|bz2|sit|rar)$ no-gzip
        #dont-vary
        # Keep a log of compression ratio on each request
        DeflateFilterNote Input instream
        DeflateFilterNote Output outstream
        DeflateFilterNote Ratio ratio
        LogFormat '"%r" %{outstream}n/%{instream}n (%{ratio}n%%)' deflate
        CustomLog /var/log/apache2/deflate.log deflate
        # Properly handle old browsers that do not support compression
        BrowserMatch ^Mozilla/4 gzip-only-text/html
        BrowserMatch ^Mozilla/4\.0[678] no-gzip
        BrowserMatch \bMSIE !no-gzip !gzip-only-text/html
        #----------------------------------
       
        #------ADD EXPIRY DATE-------------
        <FilesMatch "\.(ico|pdf|flv|jpg|jpeg|png|gif|js|css|swf)$">
               Header set Expires "Thu, 15 Apr 2012 20:00:00 GMT"
        </FilesMatch>
        #----------------------------------
        #--------Remove ETags --------------------
        FileETag none
        #-----------------------------------------

And then make sure, you have running this command to load module for apache2
sudo a2enmod rewrite
sudo a2enmod deflate
sudo a2enmod headers

In Fedora/Centos
vim /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf
        ## -- YFi begin
        <Directory  /var/www/html/c2>
            AllowOverride All
        </Directory>
        #-------COMPRESS CONTENT-----------
        # place filter 'DEFLATE' on all outgoing content
        SetOutputFilter DEFLATE
        # exclude uncompressible content via file type
        SetEnvIfNoCase Request_URI \.(?:exe|t?gz|jpg|png|pdf|zip|bz2|sit|rar)$ no-gzip
        #dont-vary
        # Keep a log of compression ratio on each request
        DeflateFilterNote Input instream
        DeflateFilterNote Output outstream
        DeflateFilterNote Ratio ratio
        LogFormat '"%r" %{outstream}n/%{instream}n (%{ratio}n%%)' deflate
        CustomLog /var/log/httpd/deflate.log deflate
        # Properly handle old browsers that do not support compression
        BrowserMatch ^Mozilla/4 gzip-only-text/html
        BrowserMatch ^Mozilla/4\.0[678] no-gzip
        BrowserMatch \bMSIE !no-gzip !gzip-only-text/html
        #----------------------------------
       
        #------ADD EXPIRY DATE-------------
        <FilesMatch "\.(ico|pdf|flv|jpg|jpeg|png|gif|js|css|swf)$">
            Header set Expires "Thu, 15 Apr 2012 20:00:00 GMT"
        </FilesMatch>
        #----------------------------------
        #--------Remove ETags --------------------
        FileETag none
        #-----------------------------------------
        ## -- YFi end

And run this command to load the modules
LoadModule rewrite_module modules/mod_rewrite.so
LoadModule deflate_module modules/mod_deflate.so
LoadModule headers_module modules/mod_headers.so

Success to install
5.3
yfi_cake-svn + yfi-viewer-svn 
Success to install
5.4 or latest
yfi_cake-Beta-5 + yfi-viewer-5
Not success
5.4 or latest
yfi_cake-svn + yfi-viewer-svn 
Success to install
Note.
  • Check your php version. If you have php version 5.4, don’t ever think to use yfi_cake-Beta-5.
  • Success in the table, not mean, there’s no error.
  • Below link download yfi_cake-Beta-5, and yfi_cake-svn (include yfi viewer).
wget http://sourceforge.net/projects/hotcakes/files/YFi%20CakePHP%20Application/Beta-5/yfi_cake-Beta-5.tar.gz

How to fix
This errors happened because there’s no module perl. you must to reinstall freeradius-server-2.0. Before that, install the supporting files.
yum install libtool-ltdl-devel mysql-devel perl-XML-Simple perl-XML-LibXML perl-suidperl perl-libxml-perl   perl-ExtUtils-Embed perl-Time-HiRes
Then reinstall freeradius-server-2.2.0

How to fix
This error happened because you are using default freeradius of OS Linux. And the freeradius configuration is in /etc/raddb. Edit /etc/raddb/radiusd.conf
sysconfdir = /etc
localstatedir = /var
sbindir = /sbin
special for Ubuntu, there’s a little different. Make link freeradius to radiusd.
ln -s /var/run/freeradius /var/run/radiusd

Ok. I hope this post is useful. If you find the same error as above, you will be easy to fix it. But if you find a new error that is not here, please send it to me, or you can comment here. It would be better if you send the error and how to fix it. So, I will update this post again.
