PHP Server Status Dashboard

Overview

PHP Server Status Dashboard is a collection of client and server software that make it easier to monitor your servers in near real-time. It impliments both Long Polling and EventSource (https://github.com/Yaffle/EventSource/) load methods. Currently, the EventSource load style is implemented using a Polyfill due to some bugs in the current versions of mainstream browsers dealing with CORS.

Server components (Server.class.php) were built on CentOS (RHEL) so some calls make use of RPM commands and would need to be translated to work in your environment. A binary wrapper is included to make calls from the dashboard to the server to start/restart/stop services as a pass-through for PHP. Source for the wrapper is included in 'build' in case you need to modify and re-compile it.

The software is setup to use Basic Authentication for accessing the server data. If you want to roll your own authentication system you'll want to make changes to the headers both load styles send as they currently send Authentication headers.

Setup

Server

  • Copy contents of 'server' to a directory on your server.
  • Setup Basic Authentication on directory
  • Edit the header Access-Control-Allow-Origin in both info.json.php and info.event.json.php to match the domain your dashboard will live on.
  • Edit the array of services to poll in Server::getServicesInfo in both info.json.php and info.event.json.php
  • Edit the directory string and forbidden array in Server::getDomainList in both info.json.php and info.event.json.php. Directory string is a path to a directory containing your domains. Idealy, each domain will have a directory named after itself; /var/www/vhosts/domain1.com, /var/www/vhosts/domain2.com, etc. The forbidden array is a list of directory names to not include when traversing the main directory.
  • Make any necessary changes to Server.class.php so that system calls will work on your setup. We've tested on CentOS 5.6 and CentOS 6.3.
  • Upload it all
  • Set permissions on service.sh to chown root service.sh and chmod u=rwx,go=xr service.sh
  • Set permissions on service to chown root service and chmod u=rwx,go=xr,+s service

Dashboard

  • Copy contents of 'dashboard' to a directory on your server. Does not need to be the same server as above.
  • Edit the list of available servers to poll in application.js under assets/scripts
  • Default is set to use Long Polling at a 5 second interval. Change that on lines 73 and 74 of application.js if needed.
  • Set Basic Authentication username and password on line 75 of application.js
  • Upload it all
