Version 1.21.3

Released: 2004-04-18

CMD_API_SHOW_DOMAINS new

API for users to get their own domains. Nothing is passed. Url encoded list.

Safemode control for Admins (SKINS) new

Ability to enable/disable safe_mode for new domains. They'll be able to set the default for new domains, but they'll also have the ability to change the domains after they've been created.

virtual_host*.conf templates require the |SAFE_MODE| token for the:

php_admin_flag safe_mode |SAFE_MODE|

SKINS:

files_admin.conf

CMD_PHP_SAFE_MODE=admin/safe_mode.html

Also added links in admin/admin_settings.html (and admin/content_main.html in powe_user)

Add Email data (messages) to backups new

Add the physical emails that are stored in /var/spool/mail/username and /var/spool/virtual/domain.com/. As well, store the webmail/squirrelmail data (Address book, prefs, etc) and imap data (/home/username/imap/)

John

Tables "starts with" new

Added another search function in all "Advanced Search" tables. The command is "starts with" .. and is used to find all items that being with the given string.

DNS quick search for domains (SKINS) new

Added a quick form at the top of the admin/dns_admin.html page to search through the domains a bit quicker. It's essentially the same as the "advanced search", but is more refined and very quick/easy to use. This change is not essential and won't affect anything if it's not added.

add this just before the |TABLE| token

Backup: option for "all users" so adding/removing users to the cron isn't required (SKINS) new

Adding another "who" option for step 1 of the backup where you can select "all users" so that when adding/removing user accounts from your Reseller, you don't need to make any changes to the backup cron. All users will always be selected (including the reseller himself)

reseller/backups.html

reseller/backup_modify.html

change the <div> for users to this:

<table cellpadding=0 cellspacing=1>
<tr>
<td class=listtitle align=center>
<input type=radio name=who value="all">
</td>
<td class=listtitle>
- All Users
</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td class=listtitle align=center>
<input type=radio name=who value="selected" checked>
</td>
<td class=listtitle>
- Selected Users
</td>
</tr>
<tr><td></td>
<td>
<div style="overflow: auto; height: 160px; width: 150px;">
|USERS|
</div>
</td>

Session key system for API logins in the skins new

Ability for skin scripting to login to da without knowing the password. It's essentially the same as the sessions based system, except it will work for the localhost ip (127.0.0.1).

The key will be passes through the env in skins as:

SESSION_KEY

the session ID is also now passed through the env:

SESSION_ID

The key should be passed as a cookie along with the token

session=<SESSION_ID>; key=<SESSION_KEY>

eg header in php (communication class):

$query .= "Cookie: session=".getenv("SESSION_ID")."; key=".getenv("SESSION_KEY")."rn";

FreeBSD Frontpage error: FrontPage SUID Error: invalid environment arguments fixed

fpexec is generating that error on FreeBSD systems. This is caused when mod_frontpage isn't passing the required environmental variables to suexec/fpexec.

Update: I added the following items to the env. vars. list in the suexec.c file so that it doesn't remove them when mod_frontpage is passing fpexe to suexec. (suexec calls fpexec but was removing the required variables.)

FIX:

cd /usr/local/directadmin/customapache
./build clean
rm frontpage.patch
./build update
./build apache_mod_ssl
/usr/local/etc/rc.d/httpd restart

Restore public_html directory (FreeBSD) fixed

The restore is failing to restore /home/username/domains/* due to an invalid path for /bin/tar. Workaround is to create a symbolic link from /bin/tar to /usr/bin/tar

ln -s /usr/bin/tar /bin/tar

Package changes only affect users once fixed

When a Reseller changes one of his User packages, all users who currently have that package will get the new settings. However, their set package name is then set to custom, so any other changes to the package will not affect them. This fix prevents the setting of "custom" to the users set package, so that they are always bound their set package (unless their account is manually modified, in which case their package would in fact be set to "custom")

User cleanup if void user is left in users.list file. fixed

http://www.directadmin.com/forum/showthread.php?s=&postid=15282#post15282

IMPLEMENT ME::User::cleanup big mess, make the user GONE. (!user)

Workaround:

remove the user from the /usr/local/directadmin/data/users/reseller/users.list file.

Permission on public_html to 750 fixed

currently used chmod 710 with user:apache, but that was causing problems. Changing defaul to be 750 user:apache.

When the frontpage extension are installed, they'll be changed to 755 user:user

Segfault in dataskq preventing tally fixed

In reference to:

http://www.directadmin.com/forum/showthread.php?s=&postid=15932#post15932

Found: was deleting memory when not allocated. Workaround:

Delete /usr/local/directadmin/data/templates/reseller_limit.txt

Next release will recreate the file and fix the bug.

Change php_flag to php_admin_flag fixed

change

php_flag engine on/off

to

php_admin_flag engine on/off

Remove cron jobs after user is removed fixed

Remove cron jobs after user is removed

Backup feature isn't running for a cron with many users (~30) (SKINS) fixed

The crontab files apparently have a limit on the number of characters they'll run. It seems to be topping out at around 974 characters, so if the cron command stored in the crontab file for "diradmin" is longer than that, the command isn't correctly run, and the cron won't take place.

Workaround:

create 2 (or more) cron jobs with half the users in each. They can still be run at the same time, but as long as each one is under the character limit, it should run.

Actual fix:

Create a cron list file with an index. The cronjobs will simply store the cron index and will get the taskq to retrive the actual cron data from the list.

A converter has been made to move the old cron jobs to the new location/format.

echo "action=convert&value=cronbackups" >> /usr/local/directadmin/data/task.queue (executed during update).
SKINS:

reseller/backup_modify.html

<input type=hidden name=old value="|old|">

is changed to:

<input type=hidden name=id value="|id|">

Remove Auth lines from .htaccess during Frontpage Install fixed

Remove 3 lines from .htaccess during frontpage install.

http://www.directadmin.com/forum/showthread.php?s=&postid=16057#post16057

/home/username/domains/domain.com/public_html/_vti_bin/.htaccess and removed the 3 Auth* lines:

AuthName www.tbb.directadmin.com
AuthUserFile /home/user/domains/tbb.directadmin.com/public_html/_vti_pvt/service.pwd
AuthGroupFile /home/user/domains/tbb.directadmin.com/public_html/_vti_pvt/service.grp

Mysql database dump add --quote-names fixed

Added --quote-names so that odd database/table names don't confuse mysql.

in referense to thread:

http://www.directadmin.com/forum/showthread.php?s=&postid=16449#post16449

Basically just truncate the files to zero.

#include <unistd.h>
int truncate("file", 0);

instead of "unlink("file")

Allow single quotes in filter fixed

http://www.directadmin.com/forum/showthread.php?s=&threadid=2665

allow the ' character to be used in the mail filters.

Email disk usage counted twice if /var and /home on same partitiion fixed

Some systems use seperate partitions for /home and /var so email disk usage has to be counted in addition to the system quota disk usage. This fix will add a check to see if they're on the same partition or not and decide whether to add the email disk usage again or not.

Demo List/Modify Accounts shows "Error Reading File" fixed

Optimizations to the List/Modify accounts page did not take into account demo accounts.

Remove domain pointers from /etc/virtual/domain when local mailserver is unchecked fixed

Remove domain pointers from /etc/virtual/domain when local mailserver is unchecked.
