Note: For Lightmeter binaries please use version 1.6.1 on Gitlab registry.
Users of Plesk, the most popular web hosting control panel software (WHCP), can now use Lightmeter for their mailserver monitoring, and a walkthrough tour of the Lightmeter interface is now presented to new users.
Lightmeter now supports Plesk email monitoring for Postfix, thanks to its newly gained ability to be configured via environment variables. Thank you to T. Van der Plas for requesting and testing this feature!
Environment variables enable convenient web-based installation without command-line access. It now takes around 3 minutes to get Lightmeter running on any of the 380,000 servers using Plesk!
While Plesk is the initial support target for this release, the same system provides anticipated, but as yet untested support for the following platforms as well:
Are you using Lightmeter with these platforms? Let us know! Share your questions and experiences so support for them can further improve in future releases.
In preparation for a new public demo launching soon, Lightmeter now shows an introduction to key components and concepts when it runs for the first time. This orientation guide can be relaunched any time from a link in the footer for onboarding new users in your team. The walkthrough steps are short and to the point, and can be dismissed with a single click.
Two fixes are also included:
