Hi all.

Anyone out there having expirience with iFolder.
I’ve used the following tutorial: http://www.daniellench.com/2010/08/ifolder-on-opensuse-11-3/
to install it.
I used libflaim as a database (no LDAP).
All web interfaces work well (admin, ifolder).
I can create users and make folders.

But when I try to login with a desktop client (windows or linux) I get an error message invalid credentials and this message in Simias.log:

2011-02-08 09:31:24,744 -1320158352] DEBUG Simias.Security.Web.AuthenticationModule - In verify[rincipalfromrequest: soapmethod is GetDomainID

Is there a tool to connect to the flaim database and view the records ?
I could find one.


Thanks for checking out my tutorial.

Does your username/password have 8 char? try 7 or 9, anything but 8

Can you check the exact version of the client in windows?
C:\Program Files\iFolder
RT click on iFolderApp.exe > properties >details tab
Make sure its or higher
If its you need to uninstall it, delete the simias directory in %appdata% in winxp or %localappdata% in vista/7

I have not seen a tool to browse the flaim DB and I really don’t want to.

On the server to enable debug logs, edit /etc/simias/Simias.log4net and change ‘INFO’ to ‘DEBUG’
Logs are found in /var/simias/log/Simias.log (or your path)

The same goes for the client, change the %appdata%\simias\Simias.log4net or %localappdata%\simias\Simias.log4net to ‘DEBUG’ and read the logs at %appdata%\simias\Simias.log (all windows versions)


Yep it is a client version problem.


I need help installing iFolder. I recently installed OpenSUSE 11.3 (x86_64).

I am using this tutorial too: iFolder on OpenSuSE 11.3 full install walkthrough » daniel lench

one thing i noticed is that I don’t have a “simias” directory anywhere. Am I missing something? Anyway, I’m not finished installing yet. Just curious though. I’m quite new to this, so there may be some things I have to understand. Can anyone give me a tip or something about what to do and what NOT to do in installing iFolder?

Thank you.

I’ll post again here if somethings goes wrong. =)


Hi again,

I got this following error after following the instructions under iFolder server setup.

I ran (in my browser): https://localhost/simias10 and got this errors:

I ran https://localhost/iFolder and got this error:

If you think this is a server error, please contact the webmaster.

any help on how to install this succesfully?

Hi again,

Ok, so i successfully installed the iFolder sever, and when i ran https://localhost/ifolder, its bringing me to the login page, but as I logged in as admin, it says: The username or password you entered is incorrect. Please log in.

How can i set my username and password?

have you logged into the localhost/admin and created a new user? you also need to set the user’s home server and click save. after that you can login to the localhost/ifolder with the new user.

the user created in the simias-server-setup is the super user and can only login to the /admin side
