Dynamically add users...?

#1 Post by tubaguy50035 » 2010-09-10 16:25

Is there a way to add users dynamically with file permissions? I did a little searching and didn't find anything here on the subject. Also, can i connect to the admin panel from a different system?

Thanks for your help!

Edit the FileZilla Server.xml file directly, then call FileZilla Server.exe /reload-config.
Also, can i connect to the admin panel from a different system?
1. Open server settings, Admin interface settings. Note down the admin port, and add the IP of the designated remote-admin PC to the list of allowed IPs. You have to set a password for the server of remote administration will fail!

2. Make sure the admin port is opened in the firewall (it must be forwarded for remote administration over the internet).

3. Run the installer on the second system and install only the admin interface.

4. Use the IP and admin port of the server PC to connect to the remote FTP service.

Can I call that command through the remote admin interface?

Also, is there any plan to get FileZilla server to read user data from a MySQL database? I'm basically looking for a way to automate the process of adding users to my ftp server.

No. But why would you want that? Changes made through the remote administration interface will be in effect without needing the command. The only exception is the Admin interface settings: All changes on that tab will be ignored from remote.

Not planned. Eventually the server gets a full rewrite from scratch, but don't hold your breath.


However, please note that all FileZilla software is Open Source. Anybody with the know-how could do the changes him-/herself.

The only reason I would want to call that command remotely, is if I was changing the xml file remotely. Is there any way to setup an ftp relay through FileZilla?

As that command has to be executed directly on the server system, you need some kind of shell or RDP/VNC access to do that.
