ProFTPd Admin

Graphical User Interface for ProFTPd with MySQL and sqlite3 support

About ProFTPd Admin

This GUI for ProFTPd was written to support a basic user management feature when using the SQL module. Originally written by Lex Brugmann in 2004, updated by Christian Beer in 2012 to support the latest PHP version.
2017 updated by Michael Keck with build-in login for the admin user, secure the directories configs/ and includes and moved tables*.sql to install/tables*.sql. Added install/config-examples for OS specific configurations.

It's possible to use either of SHA1 and pbkdf2 with either of MySQL/MariaDB and sqlite3. pbkdf2 is supported since ProFTPd 1.3.5.

You can look at some screenshots to see if this is the tool you need.

Installation

Note:
Please use, if available, a secured connection to your webserver via https. You can do this by your webserver configurations or simple set in the config.php:

/**
 * Force SSL usage
 *
 * Important: You should change this to true on live systems or configure
 *            your webserver to use SSL!
 */
$cfg['force_ssl'] = true; // default was false

Please notice that you need a SSL-certificate to use secured connection.

(A) Using MySQL and SHA1

  1. Install ProFTPd with MySQL support
  2. Create a MySQL database, for example: "proftpd".
  3. Use the file install/tables.sql to populate the database.
  4. Add the following to your proftpd.conf and sql.conf (edit to your needs):
CreateHome            on 775
AuthOrder             mod_sql.c

SQLBackend            mysql
SQLEngine             on
SQLPasswordEngine     on
SQLAuthenticate       on
SQLAuthTypes          SHA1

SQLConnectInfo        database@localhost username password
SQLUserInfo           users userid passwd uid gid homedir shell
SQLGroupInfo          groups groupname gid members
SQLUserWhereClause    "disabled != 1"
SQLLog PASS           updatecount
SQLNamedQuery         updatecount UPDATE "login_count=login_count+1, last_login=now() WHERE userid='%u'" users

# Used to track xfer traffic per user (without invoking a quota)
SQLLog RETR           bytes-out-count
SQLNamedQuery         bytes-out-count UPDATE "bytes_out_used=bytes_out_used+%b WHERE userid='%u'" users
SQLLog RETR           files-out-count
SQLNamedQuery         files-out-count UPDATE "files_out_used=files_out_used+1 WHERE userid='%u'" users

SQLLog STOR           bytes-in-count
SQLNamedQuery         bytes-in-count UPDATE "bytes_in_used=bytes_in_used+%b WHERE userid='%u'" users
SQLLog STOR           files-in-count
SQLNamedQuery         files-in-count UPDATE "files_in_used=files_in_used+1 WHERE userid='%u'" users
  1. Extract all files to your webspace (into a subdirectory like proftpdadmin).
  2. Copy the configs/config_example.php to config.php and edit the new copied file to your needs.
    Notice: Change the default login settings!
/**
 * Login data
 *
 * Important: Please change this values in
 *            live systems!
 */
$cfg['login'] = array(
 /* Username. Please use any username you want */
 'username' => 'admin',
 /* Password. CHANGE IT and use secure password! */
 'password' => 'password',
 /* Blowfish secret key (22 chars). CHANGE IT! */
 'blowfish' => 'XBu5pjOTa8H7UIwYSzMZxD'
);
  1. Optional remove or secure the folder install.
  2. Start ProFTPd.
  3. Go to http://your.server.com/proftpdadmin/ and start using it!

(B) Using sqlite3 and pbkdf2

  1. Install ProFTPd with sqlite3 support
  2. Use install/tables-sqlite3.sql to create an sqlite3 database: sqlite3 auth.sqlite3 < install/tables-sqlite3.sql
  3. Add the following to your proftpd.conf and sql.conf (edit to your needs):
CreateHome            on 775
AuthOrder             mod_sql.c

SQLBackend            sqlite3
SQLEngine             on
SQLPasswordEngine     on
SQLAuthenticate       on
SQLAuthTypes          pbkdf2
SQLPasswordPBKDF2     sha1 5000 20
SQLPasswordUserSalt   name Prepend
SQLPasswordEncoding   hex

SQLConnectInfo        /path/to/auth.sqlite3
SQLUserInfo           users userid passwd uid gid homedir shell
SQLGroupInfo          groups groupname gid members
SQLUserWhereClause    "disabled != 1"
SQLLog PASS           updatecount
SQLNamedQuery         updatecount UPDATE "login_count=login_count+1, last_login=now() WHERE userid='%u'" users

# Used to track xfer traffic per user (without invoking a quota)
SQLLog RETR           bytes-out-count
SQLNamedQuery         bytes-out-count UPDATE "bytes_out_used=bytes_out_used+%b WHERE userid='%u'" users
SQLLog RETR           files-out-count
SQLNamedQuery         files-out-count UPDATE "files_out_used=files_out_used+1 WHERE userid='%u'" users

SQLLog STOR           bytes-in-count
SQLNamedQuery         bytes-in-count UPDATE "bytes_in_used=bytes_in_used+%b WHERE userid='%u'" users
SQLLog STOR           files-in-count
SQLNamedQuery         files-in-count UPDATE "files_in_used=files_in_used+1 WHERE userid='%u'" users
  1. Extract all files to your webspace (into a subdirectory like proftpdadmin).
  2. Copy the configs/config_example.php to config.php and edit the new copied file to your needs.
    Notice: Change the default login settings!
/**
  * Login data
  *
  * Important: Please change this values in
  *            live systems!
  */
$cfg['login'] = array(
  /* Username. Please use any username you want */
  'username' => 'admin',
  /* Password. CHANGE IT and use secure password! */
  'password' => 'password',
  /* Blowfish secret key (22 chars). CHANGE IT! */
  'blowfish' => 'XBu5pjOTa8H7UIwYSzMZxD'
);
  1. Optional remove or secure the folder install.
  2. Start ProFTPd.
  3. Go to http://your.server.com/proftpdadmin/ and start using it!

Upgrade

If you want to upgrade the hashing algorithm you have to change all passwords after changing the configs (both ProFTPd and ProFTPd Admin).
