I’ve just install proxy squid server with Linux Debian Lenny as the Operating System. I’m using netinstall version due to I need the base system and add the package gradually based on needs. After that, I’ve try the phpsysinfo package to install to the Linux Debian Lenny server. The phpSysinfo is a PHP script that displays information about the host being accessed. It will displays things like Uptime, CPU, Memory, SCSI, IDE, PCI, Ethernet, Floppy, and Video Information.
Why I need the phpSysinfo?, Like the description above. I need to know everything about the server with one click and the important is I could check them with the browser. So, now the phpSysinfo is the best choice.
Installing phpSysinfo is very easy because the phpSysinfo already included on Debian Lenny repository. We just install with apt-get. But to install phpSysinfo, it need other service like web/apache server and of course the php itself. It’s mean we need install also the php module for the apache.
Actually, we just apt-get install phpSysinfo then the Debian Lenny will ask you to install other package which needed by phpSysinfo. Like I do before when installing the LAMP server on Ubuntu, the name package is same and could install in one line.
proksi:~# apt-get install apache2 libapache2-mod-php5 php5-mysql phpsysinfo
then after installation finish, open your Firefox browser then type on address bar
change 192.168.1.10 with your current IP server. See the result and you have all data about your Debian lenny server.
How if you type just http://192.168.1.10/phpsysinfo on your address bar browser?, It will prompt to download the php file. I’m not sure about this, But might be this is a bug of phpSysinfo.
