What is OpenRSD

OpenRSD or ORSD is a set of PHP scripts, JS, HTML, and BootStrap CSS to create a beautiful, easy to use, responsive Dashboard to manage Raspbian based distros for the RPi2-3.

After months of testing, OpenRSD seems to be stable. Please put issues on GitHub if you find any bugs.

OpenRSD How to install & Use

Installing OpenRSD is pretty simple to do. Just follow the below instructions:

  1. This script is only tested on Raspbian, please make sure you are running a distro based on that, or running Raspbian.
  2. Once Raspbian (Or Raspbian based OS) is installed, run(Note: The following is just the BARE MINIMUM to get OpenRSD to run properly, PiVPN and Samba must be installed separately!):

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install git apache2 php5 libapache2-mod-php5 php5-mcrypt expect geoip-bin

  1. Once that is done, run "sudo nano /etc/apache2/apache2.conf" Edit the User and Group to the user/group pi, it should look like this.

    ...Some Config stuff...
    User pi
    Group pi
    ...Some Config stuff...
  2. Then run: sudo service apache2 restart
  3. Then run: cd /var/www/html
  4. Then run: rm -f index.html *Optional!
  5. Then run: git clone
  6. Once the command finishes running, you can go to the following URL to access the admin panel for your pi: "http://YourPIsIPAddress/openrsd"
  7. Login with the user pi, and whatever password you have set for that user.
