New authserver proposal

Reported by: lelmarir@… Owned by:
Priority: normal Milestone: WifiDog Auth Server 2.0
Component: Auth server, Code Refactoring Version: Auth Server SVN
Keywords: new simple auth server Cc:


I'm using a router with OpenWRT and wifidog. The authserver you can find in the source (http://dev.wifidog.org/browser/trunk/wifidog-auth) is not suitable for my purposes. I wrote a new server from scratch designed for a single hotspot (although it should not be difficult to implement a mechanism for synchronizing accounts between multiple hotspots, resulting in a distributed auth server ) and I'd like to share it with those who has my same needs. It is written entirely in PHP, without using templates or external libraries, just plain PHP. (except for a marginal SOAP library used to send text messages to verify the account) It uses sqlite as database. It does not implement even a mechanism for language localization, the aim is to keep the most lightweight and simple as possible to allow it to run on embedded devices and also be easily modified also by less experienced.

I tested the server for a while and soon will be operational by serving real customers. It's not perfect and probably still has some flaws (I have not understood the validation mechanism used by wifidog) but if anyone else was interested and wanted to help improve it I would be happy.

Is there a place where i can upload the sources to make them available?

Hi there, I too am trying to work with wifidog, but really, it's a complete headache... its deprecated, and it hasn't been updated for years.

I'm glad to help you, since I also need a working solution, the fast as I can.

Please contact me on the following emails, we can set up a sourceforge.net account for example.
