Help

  • Users

The proxy users panel allows you to create a .htaccess password file to be used to authenticate with NCSA

The records are kept in a sme db file, /home/e-smith/db/proxyusers

A password file is created, /etc/proxyusers

  • Groups

For users to be sorted into dansguardian filtergroups they need to belong to SME groups. The SME groups have to exist but these proxy users are added the proxyusers database not the SME accounts database

  • User Passwords

The users passwords can be shown or hidden on the main page of the panel.

db dungog setprop proxyusers ShowPasswords enabled

or

db dungog setprop proxyusers ShowPasswords disabled
