Dynamic user creating with PHP

#1 Post by itunali » 2005-09-07 08:35

i want to create FTP users with my application (made with PHP). I know that server keeps user setting in "FileZilla Server.xml" file. I can insert all info for user creating except user's password.

How can i insert user's password. Is there any encrypt function or algorithm.

regards

This has been answered before, remember to search the forums before posting a new topic.

http://filezilla.sourceforge.net/forum/ ... php?t=1317
(it's vbscript but you get the picture)

Think there are other posts on the subject as well, just search here on in the sf.net forums.

After updating the xml file, call 'FileZilla Server.exe' with the -reload-config commandline argument, that will make FZS to reload it's config.

i see there are a few command line aruguments that can be used
Starting and stopping the service:
/start
/stop

Installing the service for manual startup:
/install

Installing the service for start at boot:
/install auto

Uninstalling service
/uninstall

Reloading configuration at runtime
/reload-config

Start and stop can be used together with /compat:
/compat start
/compat stop
That will start FileZilla Server as normal application and not as a service. Main purpose is for debugging.
but is there one for adding user or deleting a user

I tried this, but it seems that command is somehow rejecterd becouse the server doesn't reload itself :cry:
I also tried exec() and system() but it doesn't work either. Any idea what can i do ?

Thanks

EDiT: Found mistake :P

Code: Select all

passthru('"' . $fileloc . 'FileZilla Server.exe" /reload-config');
Obviously there were missing "" :lol:

There were a few problems (can't remeber what they were to be honest :oops: nothing huge, just some things weren't as they should), and made it easier to change the username/password etc
It's somewhat setup for my server (Installed to C:\Program Files\Filezilla Server), with two groups, and instead of changing the share folders per-user, I just shove users in one of a few groups

Basicly, include this code (or just the function), then call it like
fzs_adduser("[Username]","[Password]","[Group]");

For example
if(fzs_adduser("dbr","mypassword","mygroup")){
echo("User added succesfully");
} else {
echo("Username taken");
}
(it returns true if it worked, false if not)
If you use this, you might want to scan over the code and make sure everything is setup right
I think you might need to make a folder called settings_bk (Which is where the backups of the filezilla server.xml file gets copied, which is to save cluttering the root folder, and make clearing the backups simple), I'm not sure if it'll auto-create it

Ideally I'd create a few functions, that'd let you list/edit users, and the likes, but not sure if I can :wink: :P

reload config command gotcha

#8 Post by shimmyshack » 2006-09-02 18:43

for those who arent having any luck, instead of

"FileZilla Server.exe" /reload-config

use

"FileZilla Server.exe" -reload-config

just a gotcha - the /reload-config just pops up a message box, cos it isnt recognised on the latest version
