Softaculous Enterprise Integration

Overview

The following guide will show you how to install Softaculous Enterprise. Softaculous Enterprise Integration is suitable for a system where NFS access is possible. Softaculous will be installed on a single VM or dedicated server and will install applications over NFS. Softaculous Enterprise is suitable for a clustered setup where you have multiple servers which are connected over NFS.

Install Softaculous Enterprise

Requirements

  • A server with Root access.
  • If you have a firewall, then please allow access to download all packages from *.softaculous.com

Note : Please allow access to the following domains to your firewall as these are the mirrors used to download the script packages.

  • api.softaculous.com (IP : 192.198.80.3)
  • s1.softaculous.com (IP : 158.69.6.246)
  • s2.softaculous.com (IP : 192.200.108.99)
  • s3.softaculous.com (IP : 178.32.158.97)
  • s4.softaculous.com (IP : 138.201.24.83)
  • s7.softaculous.com (IP : 167.114.200.240)

IMPORTANT : Please do not use any other web server on this server because Softaculous will be using its own web server on port 80, 443, 2006 and 2007. Also do not install any other database as MySQL too will be installed by Softaculous and will be using port 3178.

Supported OS

  • CentOS
  • Ubuntu
  • Debian

Installing Softaculous

  • SSH to your server and enter following commands:
wget -N http://files.softaculous.com/install.sh
chmod 755 install.sh
./install.sh --enterprise
  • Note the API KEY and API PASSWORD given by the installer in the end. It will be used for Login and verification purpose.

That’s it the installation of Softaculous Enterprise is completed! But you will need to do some coding before you can start using Softaculous.

Integrating

Softaculous Enterprise will need you to write a class which will tell Softaculous which user is logged in, what domains he owns, etc.

You need to create a file called /usr/local/softaculous/enduser/enterprise.php

We have provided a sample file called /usr/local/softaculous/enduser/enterprise.sample.php, so you can refer it to create /usr/local/softaculous/enduser/enterprise.php

There is a class called customPanel which is extended in Softpanel. All the functions which are given in the file are used in Softaculous.

Softpanel is the class created by us which will be the bridge between your panel and the Softaculous.

Don’t rename any functions given in the customPanel class as it might break Softaculous.

Codes written in functions are simple examples which should be modified by you. 

Below we have explained each function in detail so you can modify easily according to your panel needs. 

function customPanel()

function customPanel(){
        
        // Connecting to the database with root privileges. This will be used to create database for any new installations.
	// Note: This is not compulsory and just an example
	$this->db = mysql_connect('localhost', 'root', 'mysql');
	if(!$this->db){
		die('Could not establish a connection to a database.');
	}
}
  • This is a Contructor
  • If you want to execute anything when customPanel class is loaded you can put it here. For example you can connect to mysql as shown in above example.

function dbhost()

//The Host of the Database
function dbhost($type = 'mysql'){
	return 'localhost'; // If any other host please return that!	
}
  • Return value should be the hostname of the database.
  • This function is used to connect to a database where softaculous can propagate the database for scripts installed by users.

function maxdb()

//The Maximum Number of Database
function maxdb($type = 'mysql'){
	
	return 100000; // The max number of DBs allowed to this user. If a string is given it will be assumed as Unlimited!

}
  • Return value should be the max number of DBs allowed to this user. If a string is given it will be assumed as Unlimited!
  • This function is used to check that the user does not create more databases than allotted to them.

function dbsused()

// Number of dbs used
// If unlimited return a string
function dbsused(){		
	return 10;
}
  • This function is called to CHECK whether the existing number of databases is not GREATER than or EQUAL to (>=) the allowed number of Databases.
  • Return value should be an int or a string. If a string is given it will be assumed as Unlimited!

function dbname()

// Return the DBNAME as per the panel
// e.g if dbname is given and a prefix is required then please give it here
function dbname($dbname){		
	return $dbname;		
}
  • If the panel requires to modify the DB NAME that is to be created when installing a script, it has to be done here. Many panels e.g. cPanel accept input from users as DBNAME but create Databases like USERNAME_DBNAME. In such a case this function must return USERNAME_DBNAME or DBNAME

Parameter :

  • string $dbname : Database Name chosen by the user on script install form.

function dbuser()

// Return the DBUSERNAME as per the panel
// e.g if dbusername is given and a prefix is required then please give it here
function dbuser($dbuser){
	return $dbuser;		
}
  • If the panel requires to modify the Database USER NAME that is to be created when installing a script, it has to be done here. Many panels e.g. cPanel accept input from users as DBUSERNAME but create Databases like USERNAME_DBUSERNAME. In such a case this function must return USERNAME_DBUSERNAME or DBUSERNAME

Parameter :

  • string $dbuser : Database Name chosen by the user on script install form (we use the database username the same as the database name chosen by user).

function dbexists()

// Check whether the Database Exists
// Return true if it exists or false it doesnt
function dbexists($dbname){
	if(in_array($dbname, $this->listdbs())){
		return true;
	}
	return false;
}
  • This is a function to check whether the Database already exists or not

Should return TRUE or FALSE as the case may be.

Parameter :

  • string $dbname : Database Name chosen by user on script install form.

function dbuserexists()

// Check whether the Database User Exists
// Return true if it exists or false it doesnt
function dbuserexists($dbuser){
		if(in_array($dbuser, $this->listdbusers())){
				return true;
		}
		return false;
}
  • This is a function to check whether the Database USER already exists or not

Should return TRUE or FALSE as the case may be.

Parameter :

  • string $dbuser : Database Name chosen by the user on script install form (we use the database username the same as the database name chosen by user).

function createdb()

//This will create a Database
function createdb($dbname, $dbuser, $dbpass, $type = 'mysql'){

	$is_empty = $this->dbexists($dbname);
	if(!empty($is_empty)) return true;

	$result = $this->myquery("CREATE DATABASE ".$dbname, 0);
	$result = $this->myquery("GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON $dbname.* TO '$dbuser'@'192.168.17.131'
	IDENTIFIED BY '$dbpass'", 0);
	$result = $this->myquery("GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON $dbname.* TO '$dbuser'@'".$this->dbhost()."'
	IDENTIFIED BY '$dbpass'", 0);
		
	/* if(!$result){
		$GLOBALS['error'] = 'Could not create the database';
	} */

	return true;
	
}
  • $this->myquery IS JUST AN EXAMPLE. You can create your own functions and use it in the class.
  • This function should create the DATABASE and also the Database USER. The user must also be added to the database so that the user can conduct all necessary operations on the Database.
  • Return true if it is created successfully or false if there were any error
  • If there are any errors while creation of database please fill in $GLOBALS[‘error’][] = ‘The error’;

Parameters : 

  • string $dbname – The is value that is returned by function dbname()
  • string $dbuser – The is value that is returned by function dbuser()
  • string $dbpass – The is a 10 characters randomly generated string that will be passed by Softaculous when createdb() is called.

function deldb()

//Delete a Database and user
function deldb($dbname, $dbuser, $type = 'mysql'){

	$result = $this->myquery("DROP DATABASE ".$dbname, 0);
	$result = $this->myquery("DROP USER '".$dbuser."'@'192.168.17.131'", 0);
	$result = $this->myquery("DROP USER '".$dbuser."'@'".$this->dbhost()."'", 0);
	return true;

}
  • $this->myquery IS JUST AN EXAMPLE. You can create your own functions and use it in the class.
  • This function should delete the DATABASE and also the Database USER.

Parameters passed : 

  • string $dbname – This is the value that is returned by function dbname()
  • string $dbuser – This is the value that is returned by function dbuser()

function spaceremain()

//Shows the Disk Space Available
function spaceremain(){
	
	// Note: 1) Should be in BYTES
	//		 2) If it is not numeric then SOFTACULOUS will assume as UNLIMITED space
	
	$space = (1024*1024*1024); // e.g. of a GB
	
	return $space;
	
}
  • Should return the space available in BYTES. If a string is returned it will be assumed that the user has unlimited space remaining.

* @param array $domains Existing Domains list under the user's account.
function blacklist_domains($domains){
	$blacklist_domains = array();
	return $blacklist_domains;
}

function listcpplans() (Optional)

Return array list of control panel plans

function listcpplans(){
	$cpplans = array();	
	return $cpplans;
}

User Management

Types of Users

There are three types of Users in Softaculous Enterprise :

Admin User

  • There is only one Admin User i.e root and is added by default during the installation.
  • Owner and Username of Admin User is root
  • It is responsible for handling the scripts, users, domains and other settings.
  • Admin can create Reseller as well as Regular Users.
  • Like Regular users even Admins can use the Enduser Panel and install scripts.

Reseller User

  • Only Admin can create Resellers.
  • Resellers can be added from Admin Panel only.
  • Number of users allotted to Reseller should be more by one because reseller himself is counted as a user. E.g If Admin has allotted 10 number of users then Reseller can add total 9 Regular Users under his account.
  • Resellers can create Regular Users.
  • Like Regular users even Resellers can use the Enduser Panel and install, remove and manage scripts.
  • If the Reseller is ‘xyz’ then the owner and the username of his accounts will be ‘xyz’.

Regular User

  • Regular Users can be created by Admin or Resellers.
  • Owner of the Regular User will the User who is creating the user, it can be Admin(root) or Reseller.
  • They can install, remove, update, manage scripts from Enduser Panel.
  • The owner and the username of the Regular users create by a Reseller will be :
    • Owner => Reseller’s Username(xyz in above example)
    • Username => User name of the regular user just created
  • The owner and the username of the Regular users create by Admin will be :
    • Owner => root
    • Username => User name of the regular user just created

Authentication Methods

There are three possible ways to login into Softaculous Enterprise :

Default Login

  • Access your server through browser <your-server-ip> or <your-domain>
  • Enter the API KEY and API PASS provided by the Softaculous Installer or your host to login into Softaculous Enterprise.

Login Code

This is optional part and Softaculous will use the default session handling. 

  • Softaculous allows you to dynamically handle the session and define the User details and Domains to be listed under the user. This can be done using session.php where you can communicate with your control panel and validate the current user’s session.
  • If session.php is created Softaculous will skip the authentication part and will assume that the session is authenticated by you.
  • You can define the user details i.e. username, owner, email and the domains owned by the current logged in user in $PRE_LOGIN array. 
  • When Softaculous is loaded it will add the user and domains defined in $PRE_LOGIN if it does not exist in Softaculous database.
  • You can refer to the session.sample.php located at /usr/local/softaculous/enduser/session.sample.php

VariableExampleDescription
$PRE_LOGIN[‘username’]testUsername who will be accessing Softaculous Enterprise. Admin user is root which is created during installation time. If the username passed here does not exist in Softaculous Enterprise database it will be added.
$PRE_LOGIN[‘owner’] (Optional)rootOwner who will own this account. This is not the username but this is the user who will own the account. If not specified ‘root’ will be assumed. Default owner is root which is created during installation time.
$PRE_LOGIN[’email’]user@email.comEmail of the username. This is used to send emails like whether Install, Remove, Update of Scripts were successful or not.
$PRE_LOGIN[‘plan’] (Optional)platinumThis is used to specify which control panel plan does this user falls under. Refer [[1]] for defining control panel plans
$PRE_LOGIN[‘uid’]505UID is used to chown the directory of the installations of scripts installed by Softaculous. This is required to set the proper permission of the files/folder while installing, updating, the scripts.
$PRE_LOGIN[‘gid’] (Optional)505GID of the username. If not specified GID’s value will be assumed same as UID’s value. This is required to set the proper permission of the files/folder while installing, updating, the scripts.
$PRE_LOGIN[‘domains’][0][‘domain’]domain.comDomain Name where the users will be installing the scripts
$PRE_LOGIN[‘domains’][0][‘path’]/NFS/a/var/www/htmlFull path of the web accessible directory.
$PRE_LOGIN[‘domains’][0][‘backupdir’]/NFS/a/var/wwwFull Path of the Backup Directory. Backups created by Softaculous will be located here.
$PRE_LOGIN[‘domains’][0][‘replace_path’]/NFS/aThis “Replace Path” will be replaced with empty in PATH to get the correct path according to scripts. According to the scripts PATH mentioned above is not correct as we are on NFS. We have to generate a new path with respect to scripts.
$PRE_LOGIN[‘domains’][0][‘datadir’]/NFS/a/var/wwwAbsolute path of the Data Directory. Some scripts like Elgg, Moodle, etc need a non web accessible folder.

Example

// Write your code to authenticate the session with your control panel
if(!$authenticated){
	die('Could not validate session');
}

$PRE_LOGIN['owner'] = 'root'; // Owner
$PRE_LOGIN['username'] = 'test'; // Username
$PRE_LOGIN['email'] = 'user@email.com'; // Email
$PRE_LOGIN['plan'] = 'platinum'; // Control Panel Plan

$PRE_LOGIN['uid'] = '505';
$PRE_LOGIN['gid'] = '505';

// Domain 1 details
$PRE_LOGIN['domains'][0]['domain'] = 'domain1.com';
$PRE_LOGIN['domains'][0]['path'] = '/NFS/a/var/www/html';
$PRE_LOGIN['domains'][0]['backupdir'] = '/NFS/a/var/www';
$PRE_LOGIN['domains'][0]['replace_path'] = '/NFS/a';
$PRE_LOGIN['domains'][0]['datadir'] = '/NFS/a/var/www';

// Domain 2 details
$PRE_LOGIN['domains'][1]['domain'] = 'domain1.com';
$PRE_LOGIN['domains'][1]['path'] = '/NFS/a/var/www/html/domain1';
$PRE_LOGIN['domains'][1]['backupdir'] = '/NFS/a/var/www';
$PRE_LOGIN['domains'][1]['replace_path'] = '/NFS/a';
$PRE_LOGIN['domains'][1]['datadir'] = '/NFS/a/var/www';


// You can also define the following optional constants
define('SOFT_LOGOUT_URL', 'http://YOUR_LOGOUT.URL'); // Define your custom logout URL here
define('SOFT_LOGOUT_REDIRECT', 'http://YOUR_REDIRECT.URL'); // Define the URL where you want the user to be redirected after logging out using default logout URL
define('SOFT_SIGNIN_REDIRECT', 'http://YOUR_SIGNIN.URL'); // Define the URL where you want the user to be redirected for login

Sync Domains

  • When the domains are passed using $PRE_LOGIN[‘domains’] array described in the previous section the domain is synced with the Softaculous Enterprise database and if the domain does not exist in Softaculous Enterprise database the domain is added automatically.
  • However if you remove a domain from the $PRE_LOGIN[‘domains’] array it will not be deleted from Softaculous Enterprise database. In order to delete the domains when they are not passed in $PRE_LOGIN[‘domains’] you will need to enable the Enable Sync Domain(s) from Softaculous Admin Panel -> Settings page. Once this setting is enabled the domains passed in $PRE_LOGIN[‘domains’] will be in sync with the database and only the domains passed in $PRE_LOGIN[‘domains’] will be present in the database.

Session Tokens

  • Refer to Session Tokens for creating session tokens which can be used to redirect the user to Softaculous Enterprise with the session created. The user will not have to do anything to login in this method as the session is created by the Admin here for automation purposes.

)

Admin Functions

Initializing Admin panel

Note : The below functions are for the Softaculous Admin panel and hence you will have to initialize the admin panel. The port for Softaculous Admin panel is 2006

$rsdk = new Enterprise_API($url, $api_key, $api_pass);

This will load the Class in $rsdk with the paramaters:

  • $url is the login URL to access the Softaculous Enterprise Admin Panel.
  • $api_key is the Enterprise API KEY provided by Softaculous Installer or your Host to login to the Enterprise Admin Panel.
  • $api_pass – is the Enterprise API PASSWORD provided by Softaculous Installer or your Host with API KEY to login to the Enterprise Admin Panel.

These parameters are required for authentication, as without authentication you will not be able to access Softaculous Enterprise.

Example
include_once('enterprise_sdk.php');

$rsdk = new Enterprise_API('http://192.168.17.132', 'pirrehjhzrkgwztr', 'odxzhipr4nhntkrcx1zjvf4cxysgaffd');

Switch User

function switchUser($username = '', $owner = '')
  • This function is only for API. This function helps you to switch between the users.
  • Suppose you are a Admin and if you want to install a script for a user. You can login from your own details and use this function in between to switch to your user.
  • Only Admins and Resellers can use this function.

Parameters :

  • $username The username for the user the Admin/Reseller want to switch to.
  • $owner The owner who owns the account of user. By default it is root.

Return Values : NULL

Example

In the following example root is logged in first with its API_KEY and API_PASS, then he switches to user abc. After switching, wordpress is installed as the user abc. Install function is explained in Softaculous SDK.
Similarly Admin/Reseller can perform tasks on behalf of their users.
Note : Once you have switched to the user level then you cannot switch back to Admin/Reseller. You will have to login again. 

$rsdk = new Enterprise_API('http://192.168.17.131', 'pirrehjhzrkgwztr', 'odxzhipr4nhntkrcx1zjvf4cxysgaffd'); // root details

$res = $rsdk->switchUser('abc');

$data['softdomain'] = 'domain.com'; // OPTIONAL - By Default the primary domain will be used
$data['softdirectory'] = 'wp222'; // OPTIONAL - By default it will be installed in the /public_html folder
$data['admin_pass'] = 'pass';
$data['admin_email'] = 'admin@domain.com';
$data['softdb'] = 'wp222';
$data['dbusername'] = 'wp222';

$data['site_name'] = 'Wordpess wp222';
$data['admin_username'] = 'admin';
$data['language'] = 'en';
$data['site_desc'] = 'WordPress API Test';

$res = $rsdk->install(26, $data); // 26 is the SCRIPT ID for WordPress
$res = unserialize($res);
if(!empty($res['done'])){
	echo 'Installed';
}else{
	echo 'Installation Failed<br/>';
	if(!empty($res['error'])){
		print_r($res['error']);
	}
}

List Domains

function list_domains()
  • This function has no parameters, it will get you the list of domains.
Example
$rsdk = new Enterprise_API('http://192.168.17.132:2006', 'pirrehjhzrkgwztr', 'odxzhipr4nhntkrcx1zjvf4cxysgaffd');
$result = $rsdk->list_domains();
print_r($result);
  • Will give you the output :
Array (     
[title] => List Domains
[domain_list] => Array
(
[domain.com] => Array
(
[did] => 4
[owner] => root
[username] => root
[domain] => domain.com
[ftp_user] => user
[ftp_pass] => password
[ftp_path] => /public_html
[path] => /home/user/public_html
[backup_dir] => /backups
)

.
.
.
  • In the above output, domains_list provides the list of domains. You can iterate through domains_list to perform actions.

Add a Domain

function add_domain($domain, $username, $path, $backup_dir, $replace_path, $data_dir)
  • This function will allow you to ADD a domain.

Parameters :

  • $domain is the domain to be added
  • $username is the username of the User.
  • $path is the web accessible folder/path where your installations will be made. It should be accessible by Softaculous over NFS. Web accessible directory should be owned by user specified. e.g ‘/NFS/a/home/user/public_html’
  • $backup_dir is the Backup Directory. Softaculous will create backups in this folder. This should be accessible by Softaculous over NFS.

e.g ‘/NFS/a/home/user/backups’

  • $replace_path This “Replace Path” will be replaced with empty in PATH to get the correct path according to scripts. According to the scripts PATH mentioned above is not correct as we are on NFS. We have to generate a new path with respect to scripts.

e.g WordPress needs to be installed on /var/www/html/wp on a server. On NFS for Softaculous /var/www/html is mounted at a directory say /NFS/a/var/www/html. So now for Softaculous, wordpress path is /NFS/a/var/www/html/wp. But Softaculous requires /var/www/html/wp so /NFS/a/var/www/html/wp is converted to /var/www/html/wp by removing /NFS/a. Here /NFS/a is Replace Path.

  • $data_dir Full path of the Data Directory. Some scripts like Elgg, Moodle, etc need a non web accessible folder. Specify accordingly that it can be accessed by Softaculous too which is on NFS.


Return Values :

  • Result will be in array.
  • The result is stored in $result and if the domain was added successfully,
    • $result[‘done’] should be 1.
    • $result[‘error’] should be empty.
  • If the domain was not added successfully,
    • $result[‘done’] should be 0.
    • $result[‘error’] should be an array with error message.
