Announcements of packages that are now released.

Postby dRB » Thu Jun 16, 2005 9:27 pm

:D

This util is for all versions of FREESCO. And works right out of the box.

Thought I'd sit down and make some changes to the package from way back.

A(3)Control...
-- formerly proTeKtor
-- provides directory password management
-- uses basic authentication, authorization & access control
-- both GUI and Help have been revamped
-- some bug and logic fixes

I currently use it on my Freesco 0.3.4 server regularly, in providing restricted client access to information/dealings.

Download from here:
<a href='http://www.rbtd.com/downloads/a3control_1.5_drb.zip' target='_blank'>http://www.rbtd.com/downloads/a3control_1.5_drb.zip</a>

Installation instructions here:
<a href='http://www.rbtd.com/a3c/help.htm' target='_blank'>http://www.rbtd.com/a3c/help.htm</a>


===============================
:D

UPDATE: 18-Jun-05
A3C has been updated. Download link above.
-- some readability changes
-- duplicate user checks -- oops! :rolleyes:

it was possible to have duplicate users ... not a huge problem, but a problem nontheless

UPDATE: 19-Jun-05
-- added tar file for download
-- may make installation easier for some folk. No offense to anyone ;)

from command line:
cd /www
snarf <a href='http://www.rbtd.com/packages/a3control_1.5_drb.tar' target='_blank'>http://www.rbtd.com/packages/a3control_1.5_drb.tar</a>
tar -pxvzf a3control.tar

This will extract all files to proper location, with permissions preserved.

To run, simply point browser to <a href='http://your-site/a3c/' target='_blank'>http://your-site/a3c/</a>

UPDATE: 22-Jun-05
-- both .tar and .zip files have been updated.
-- added Setup support from the A3C control panel. Configuration can now be completed from with the application
-- help system updated to reflect changes
-- snarf method of install works best, as permissions are preserved.

Hi,

Some people understand, some don't.
I don't for instance.

OK, I have unzipped the whole lot, perfect, done some chmod, but then: what should /sww be, is it /wwa?

In httpd.conf; Do I have to replace AllowOverride None directive with AllowOverride AuthConfig directive only?
and is it here
Code: Select all
<Directory />
    Options FollowSymLinks
    AllowOverride None
</Directory>

or here
Code: Select all
# This controls which options the .htaccess files in directories can
# override. Can also be "All", or any combination of "Options", "FileInfo",
# "AuthConfig", and "Limit"
#
    AllowOverride None

Do I have to create .htaccess and .htpasswd myself or is it done by Apache.

I must have missed something simple and obvious.
So if you can help....
Thanks.

I suppose I was rather vague with some descriptions. ;)

strampke:
what should /sww be, is it /wwa
The $swwroot variable is for SSL support (https server), not the Freesco control panel area (/wwa)

I believe the server path to that root directory is:
Code: Select all
/usr/local/apache/htdocs
You'll be able to verify the path in the apache config file (httpd.conf).

Upon that note, are you wanting to run A3C from Freesco control panel area? If so, I can make the script available. Requires some minor changes in the rc_user file, so that changes survive reboots.

Do I have to replace AllowOverride None directive with AllowOverride AuthConfig
yes ... but in the following section of the httpd.conf file:
Code: Select all
<Directory "/www">


Do I have to create .htaccess and .htpasswd myself
No ... this is done by A3C automatically

Feedback is good ... I'll make some changes to current script, to address those readability and logic issues.

Updated. See initial post above.

Also, changed package file name. Must adhere to naming conventions :rolleyes:

Enjoy!
