Prerequisites

In this tutorial we’re installing daloRADIUS WebPanel on a machine running CentOS 7 that already has FreeRADIUS installed. Should you not have FreeRADIUS already installed, then visit our tutorial Install & Configure FreeRADIUS on CentOS 7 with MySQL / MariaDB.

You can also deploy FreeRADIUS servers in minutes, complete with FreeRADIUS + daloRADIUS + phpMyAdmin out of the box, by ordering one of our FreeRADIUS Server Plans.

In this tutorial we’re installing daloRADIUS, an advanced RADIUS management panel, geared towards managing hotspots and ISP deployments. It provides an easy-to-use interface for managing users, graphical reporting, accounting, a billing engine, and integrates with Google Maps.

IMPORTANT: This tutorial is aimed at installing daloRADIUS on CentOS 7. If you’re running FreeRADIUS on Ubuntu 18.04, please see our tutorial on installing daloRADIUS on Ubuntu 18.04

Pre-Installed FreeRADIUS Servers

Step 1 — Install httpd server

$ yum groupinstall "Development Tools" -y
$ yum -y install httpd httpd-devel

Start and enable the httpd server:

$ systemctl enable httpd
$ systemctl start httpd

Check the status of the httpd server to make sure it’s running:

$ systemctl status httpd

Output:

● httpd.service - The Apache HTTP Server
   Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/httpd.service; enabled; vendor preset: disabled)
   Active: active (running) since Sun 2019-05-05 12:48:15 UTC; 4s ago

Step 2 — Download daloRADIUS

Download Method #1

Download from Github

$ wget https://github.com/lirantal/daloradius/archive/master.zip
$ unzip master.zip
$ mv daloradius-master/ daloradius

Download Method #2

Download from Sourceforge

$ wget http://liquidtelecom.dl.sourceforge.net/project/daloradius/daloradius/daloradius0.9-9/daloradius-0.9-9.tar.gz
$ tar zxvf daloradius-0.9-9.tar.gz 
$ mv daloradius-0.9-9 daloradius

cd into the daloradius directory:

$ cd daloradius

Step 3 — Add the daloRADIUS SQL Schema

Import daloRADIUS MySQL tables

$ mysql -u root -p radius < contrib/db/fr2-mysql-daloradius-and-freeradius.sql 
$ mysql -u root -p radius < contrib/db/mysql-daloradius.sql

Step 4 — Config the daloRADIUS DB options

Configure daloRADIUS database connection details:

$ cd ..
$ mv daloradius /var/www/html/

Change permissions for the daloRADIUS http folder and set the appropriate permissions for the config file:

$ chown -R apache:apache /var/www/html/daloradius/
$ chmod 664 /var/www/html/daloradius/library/daloradius.conf.php

Now we'll need to modify daloradius.conf.php to add in our SQL information.

Using your favorite text editor open the file:

$ vim /var/www/html/daloradius/library/daloradius.conf.php

For the purposes of this tutorial, the relevant variables are:

CONFIG_DB_USER
CONFIG_DB_PASS
CONFIG_DB_NAME

Assuming you've followed our tutorial on how to set up FreeRADIUS on CentOS 7 using MariaDB / MySQL, the above mentioned variables should look something like this:

$configValues['CONFIG_DB_USER'] = 'radius';
$configValues['CONFIG_DB_PASS'] = 'radiuspassword';
$configValues['CONFIG_DB_NAME'] = 'radius';

Save and close the file when you're done.

Now let's make sure everything works by restarting FreeRADIUS, MariaDB or MySQL and httpd:

$ systemctl restart radiusd.service 
$ systemctl restart mariadb.service 
$ systemctl restart httpd

Now run:

$ yum install php-pear
$ pear install DB

Step 5 — Logging into daloRADIUS

And that's it.

You've successfully installed daloRADIUS on your CentOS 7 machine and you should be able to access it by visiting:

http://your-server-ip-address/daloradius/login.php

The default credentials are the following:

Username: administrator
Password: radius

Do make sure to change your password immediately.
