Bash Scripts

The Bash scripts presented here are for the vsftpd server that has been set up using the instructions in the previous pages.

Do these changes before using the scripts assuming that you have root access.

Create the following vuser subfolder in /etc/vsftpd/ if not done already:

# cd /etc/vsftpd
# mkdir vuser

Download the scripts bundle and untar it in the /etc/vsftpd/vuser folder. This is at version v0.1 and is being developed so you can check back for more versions and funcationality at http://vsftpd-virtualuser-bash-scripts.blogspot.com/.

The scripts

vuserchk - checks the necessary files and folders necessary for these scripts
vuser.conf - the file containing configuration parameters for these scripts
vuseradd - adds a virtual user
vuserdel - delets a virtual user
vuserres - restores a deleted user
vuserpas - changes a virtual user password
vusersho - displays the user password

The scripts are very verbose and will display messages and errors which are self explanatory.

 

What the scripts do not do

Deleting a user will remove the user from the active list and the ftp home folder is renamed to $USER-deleted and the deleted user details are copied to a user deleted list. A script to archive and move the tarball to an archive folder is on the back burner.

 

Panic not, be cautious

Use the scripts wisely and carefully. Please backup before any use at production servers. The scripts have been tested and used without any errors or problems.

 

Six are the scripts

These scripts are very non intrusive and have a simple logic flow. Prerequisites are BASH, GAWK, SED for the scripts to work. I am hoping to introduce more functionality into the scripts and add a local user ftp home sync'er and a deleted folder archiver, once finished will add them here.

Test them, deploy for ease of mind, let the scripts do the work and relax :).
