I would like to share with you a new Open Source
project that is developped on Linux i386. This project is called
"Artica Postfix". It is designed to offer Postfix,
fetchmail, dnsmasq, LDAP, squid,samba, dansguardian features
without technical skills through a web browser with a nice web
interface. The main goal of this project is to provide Linux
capabilities to people who do not have the time or skills to
integrate a full Mail systems or Files sharing systems or Proxy
Indeed, Linux is now available to all users, at least with
regard to its installation. Regards to the administration and the
integration of "professional" applications, that is another story
.(...) The addition of products such as Postfix, LDAP, Cyrus,
fetchmail, procmail, amavis, clamav, spamassassin ... is still
Moreover, once this mission, it remains to configure and
maintain all products listed above. Artica For Postfix / SQUID is a
project that answer to this request.
It offers the possibility to any novice installing all these
components without technical knowledge.
After installing all components, Artica For Postfix provide a
user-friendly web interface for managing mailboxes / user accounts
and all rules and parameters that Postfix / SQUID /Samba provides.
The administration interface is developped in PHP and Ajax and
available in Open Source.
Installation procedure is simple: Artica Core is the base and
the hub. you add "modules" to make an SMTP relay and / or a mailbox
server and / or webmail and / or a web proxy and / or a secure web
Its goal is different from other consoles administrations
already available. Webmin, for example provides a comprehensive but
does not help administrator's settings and its approach does not
provide a "common thread"
The project is on sourceforge.net
and has been downloaded more than 10.000 times. Rpm and deb files
are available for download.
Some screenshots are available on the Artica website
