General questions

Q: How to install?
- Download the most recent TrafficPanel version here
- Unpack the downloaded version
- Run the root permissions installation script: install/configure.sh - the installation script will check the required tools and perl modules and ask you to install them
- Go to web UI for custom TrafficPanel configuration. Read first steps for more info.

Q: If I have no required system tools, what should I do?
A: TrafficPanel checks the required system tools and informs you if something cannot be found. You can install the missing tools and perl modules with yast / apt-get or manually. The required perl modules can be installed automatically with install/perl_modules.sh from CPAN repository.

Q: How can I change the domain name?
A: You need to modify it in the TrafficPanel configuration and bind the configuration.

Q: Where can I get sarg?
A: Please download
- Fedora sarg rpm
- openSuSe sarg rpm in the openSuSe part
- Debian sarg package
Sarg requires libgd2-xpm installed, package manager removes libgd2-noxpm in case it is installed and installs libgd2-xpm.

Q: My distribution does not have the required perl module, where can I get it?
A: You can run the ./perl_modules.sh script to download and install the required perl module from CPAN or go to the CPAN shell
# perl -MCPAN -e "shell CPAN"
and install the required modules in the CPAN shell. For example Carp::Clan:
# install Carp::Clan

Q: How can I install the Carp::Clan perl module in Ubuntu?
A: Just run
# sudo apt-get install libcarp-clan-perl
You can install any perl module using name format libXXXX-perl.
XXXX is perl module name and "::" is replaced with "-".

Q: Do you support squid 3.X version?
A: Not for now

Q: I get such an error: "Magic number checking on storable string failed at blib/lib/Storable.pm"
A: You have to reinstall Storable perl modules, try another version number.

Q: I got a message "TrafficPanel can not work with enabled SELinux".
A: Yes, we did not create the required SELinux policy to get TrafficPanel working because we assume nobody has access a proxy server except the administrator.
To disable SELinux you need to set SELINUX=disabled in the /etc/selinux/config and reboot.

Q: I have installed TrafficPanel and opened it in the browser. What should I do next?
A: You have to configure
- network ip addresses in the 'TrafficPanel'->'Setup'->'Local network hosts'
- configure the required modules, for example:
  - activate squid in the 'TrafficPanel'->'Setup'->'HTTP Logs'
  - list the required interfaces in the 'TrafficPanel'->'Setup'->'Traffic Report'
