Installation of PM Software Stack is very easy and self-explanatory with basic linux server administration skills.


  • Freshly installed dedicated server/VPS with Debian 5.0
  • root access to the server
  • DNS setup for FQDN in one form or another

Basic installation


Reply to questions, and setup quota as requested.

Quota setup

Copy & paste last line of the fstab line without # character to the according device options, ie.:

/dev/md4        /home   ext4    defaults,noatime,usrjquota=aquota.user,,jqfmt=vfsv0       1       2

Monitoring setup

You need to have a Munin node running somewhere. Set host_name attribute in munin.conf to the FQDN of the server. Comment out allow for localhost if you do not need it. Check allow line on bottom of the file and input your monitoring server IP.

SSL Cert questions

You may skip all of them, these are innecessary and empty works fine if you want to allow non-signed cert HTTPS.


When the installation scripts open the file for hostname make certain it is the servers FQDN.

Post installation

Reboot server with shutdown -r now and after reboot login and type quotaon -av for quota. This is required step as the compiled version of quota does not work otherwise.
