Patching Pandora FMS

Sometimes you need to patch the Pandora FMS. To do this download the patch file (it’ll come from Sourceforge).

Untar it in a suitable location e.g.

cd sources
wget <the patchfile URL>
tar xvfz pandora_console_3.2.1_March_Patch.tar.gz
cp -i -R pandora_console/* /path/to/httpdocs/pandora_console/

and then confirm each change if it makes sense. Repeat for the pandora_server though that is at a different location e.g.,

cp -i -R  pandora_server/* /usr/share/pandora_server/

The console changes will have an effect immediately as that is just PHP scripts but the server needs to have the following,

/etc/init.d/pandora_server restart
