    I have a system with ZeroShell 3.4.0. Is it possible to have apt-get installed and configured in this OS, so that I can install additional packages / softwares that I need in the future ?



    no thats not possible since ZeroShell is not based on Debian or any of the Ubuntu released.

    Okay, So What is the default package manager of ZeroShell ? How can I install additional packages if needed ? Please clarify.



    AFAIK at the moment only package manager is on “Packages” page in the web interface.

    Just recently there was package “A Kit of Utilities and Services 1.0.0”

    And some other Add-ons

    If there program needed is not in that list then only solution is to hack it together yourself. I have managed to add some programs by compiling them from source on CentOS machine. Compiling must be done statically!

    And then I copied programs to zeroshell and added them to path.

    In script editor I added path to Post-boot script:

    echo ‘export PATH=”$PATH:/Database/sbin”‘ >> /etc/profile

    Then I could run programs in that sbin directory.

    Still some programs needed libraries even when statically compiled. In that case, for example with SLANG library, I copied the library to zeroshell and added to Post-boot:

    mkdir /opt/lib
    cp /Database/ /opt/lib

    (that was done for nano. No longer needed, since nano is now part of the utilities).

    Other than that I cannot help you.


    I have a follow up question.
    Is there an upgrade option buried somewhere in the web console?
    and if so where is it?

    I am suspecting the answer is no but then the follow up queston becomes. how can you update an existing system ?

    Apologies if this is a trivial question answered somewhere else



    If you have Zeroshell 3.x, then you can upgrade via WEB interface.

    Log in and 1st page – Package Manager.

    You must have valid Subscription!

    AFAIK older 1.x and 2.x has to be reinstalled (back up your profile and restore it later).
