How to Install TeamPass Password Manager on Debian 10

TeamPass is a collaborative password manager used for managing passwords and sharing them among team members with a specific role. It uses MySQL/MariaDB to store passwords and provides a powerful tool for customizing passwords access Teampass is highly customizable and provides a lot of options to customize it to your needs. It uses Defuse PHP Encryption library to secures your data and your users.

In this tutorial, we will show you how to install TeamPass on Debian 10 and secure it with Let's Encrypt SSL.

Prerequisites

  • A server running Debian 10.
  • A valid domain name pointed with your server IP. in this tutorial, we will use teampass.example.com domain.
  • A root password is configured on your server.

Getting Started

Before starting, it is a good idea to update your system with the latest version. You can update your system with the following command:

apt-get update -y
apt-get upgrade -y

After updating the system, restart it to implement the changes.

Install LAMP Server

First, you will need to install the Apache webserver, MariaDB database server, PHP and other required PHP extensions to your system. You can install all of them with the following command:

apt-get install apache2 mariadb-server php php-cli libapache2-mod-php php-mysql php-curl php-mbstring php-bcmath php-common php-gd php-xml git wget -y

Once all the packages are installed, open php.ini file and change some required settings:

nano /etc/php/7.3/apache2/php.ini
memory_limit = 256M
upload_max_filesize = 100M
max_execution_time = 360
date.timezone = Asia/Kolkata

Save and close the file when you are finished.

Configure MariaDB

By default, the MariaDB root password is not configured in Debian 10. So you will need to set it for security reasons.

First, log in to the MariaDB shell with the following command:

mysql

After login, set the MariaDB root user password with the following command:

MariaDB [(none)]> SET PASSWORD FOR 'root'@'localhost' = PASSWORD("yournewpassword");

Next, create a database and user for TeamPass with the following command:

MariaDB [(none)]> create database teampassdb;
MariaDB [(none)]> grant all privileges on teampassdb.* to [email protected] identified by "password";

Next, flush theprivileges and exit from the MariaDB shell with the following command:

MariaDB [(none)]> flush privileges;
MariaDB [(none)]> exit;

Download TeamPass

Next, you will need to download the latest version of the TeamPass from the Git repository. You can download it to the Apache web root directory with the following command:

cd /var/www/html
git clone https://github.com/nilsteampassnet/TeamPass.git

Next, give proper permissions to the TeamPass with the following command:

chown -R www-data.www-data /var/www/html/TeamPass/
chmod -R 775 /var/www/html/TeamPass/

Configure Apache for TeamPass

Next, you will need to create an Apache virtual host configuration file for TeamPass. You can create it with the following command:

nano /etc/apache2/sites-available/teampass.conf

Add the following lines:

<VirtualHost *:80>   
     ServerAdmin [email protected]
     DocumentRoot /var/www/html/TeamPass   
     ServerName teampass.example.com

     <Directory /var/www/html/TeamPass>      
          Options FollowSymlinks
          AllowOverride All
          Require all granted
     </Directory>   

     ErrorLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/teampass_error.log
     CustomLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/teampass_access.log combined

</VirtualHost>  

Save and close the file when you are finished. Then, enable the TeamPass virtual host and restart the Apache web service to apply the changes:

a2ensite teampass
systemctl restart apache2

Secure TeamPass with Let's Encrypt

Next, it is a good idea to secure your TeamPass with Let's Encrypt Free SSL. First, you will need to install the Certbot client in your server to download and install the Let's Encrypt SSL for your domain.

By default, the Certbot client package is not available in the Debian 10 default repository. You can add the repository with the following command:

echo "deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian buster-backports main" >> /etc/apt/sources.list

Next, update the repository and install the Certbot client with the following command:

apt-get update -y
apt-get install python-certbot-apache -t buster-backports

Once installed, run the following command to obtain and install the SSL certificate for your domain:

certbot --apache -d teampass.example.com

You will be prompt to accept the term of service and provide your valid email address as shown below:

IMPORTANT NOTES:
 - Congratulations! Your certificate and chain have been saved at:
   /etc/letsencrypt/live/teampass.example.com/fullchain.pem
   Your key file has been saved at:
   /etc/letsencrypt/live/teampass.example.com/privkey.pem
   Your cert will expire on 2020-04-30. To obtain a new or tweaked
   version of this certificate in the future, simply run certbot again
   with the "certonly" option. To non-interactively renew *all* of
   your certificates, run "certbot renew"
 - Your account credentials have been saved in your Certbot
   configuration directory at /etc/letsencrypt. You should make a
   secure backup of this folder now. This configuration directory will
   also contain certificates and private keys obtained by Certbot so
   making regular backups of this folder is ideal.
 - If you like Certbot, please consider supporting our work by:

   Donating to ISRG / Let's Encrypt:   https://letsencrypt.org/donate
   Donating to EFF:                    https://eff.org/donate-le

At this point, your domain is secured with Let's Encrypt SSL.
