#PoliCTF Server daemons

This is the repository for the PoliCTF registration and scoreboard daemons.

Sample configuration files for daemons and NGINX as reverse proxy can be found in the conf/ directory. Please thoroughly review config before deploying.

Suppose you want to run the scoreboard daemon on Debian/Ubuntu as user polictf-daemons (set in the config) behind NGINX reverse proxy. The following commands will have it up and running as a proper daemon:

scoreboard -c /path/to/scoreabord.config
chown polictf-daemons:www-data /path/to/scoreboard-fcgi-socket
chmod 0660 /path/to/scoreboard-fcgi-socket


The gameboard for the 2015 polictf is available here: (source branch)
