WordPress, concrete5, ZF2, PHP, mysql database dump

March 22nd, 2017

Here is a very simple script that once uploaded locks onto various architectures and extracts the database using the captured details.

For example, wordpress and concrete5 have been detected here:

When nothing is detected it will still offer the manual entering of the username and password.

It currently supports Concrete5 and WordPress, but I can easily upgrade it to support many more like ZF1, ZF2, Magento, Drupal, Joomla, etc, if there is any interest.

This is handy when you need to quickly copy a database, you simply upload this script to the doc_root and the script will attempt to handle the rest for you.

The script comes with password protection to prevent unauthorised usage, or it will not just be you downloading the database.

The script stores the username and password of those authorised to use it within the code, the password can be entered in plain text, or you can define your own algorithm and store the password encrypted in this way, within the code.

The script can be downloaded from github here and the full source code is below.

Very lightweight database dumper that automatically locks access details provided by other PHP frameworks
 
 
 
****** How to use ******
 
Enter your usernames and passwords into the constructor in either plain text (insecure if read by someone else) or encypted
 
 
 
Example 1: allowing bob access with the password 1234 and joe access with password 5678 - no encryption 
 
	dbDump::Init(array(
		'users'	=> array(
			array('username'=>'bob','password'=>'1234'),
			array('username'=>'joe','password'=>'5678'),
		)));
 
 
 
Example 2: allowing bob access with the password 1234 and joe access with password 5678 - with encyption method and hashed passwords that must match the method result
 
	dbDump::Init(array(
		'users'	=> array(
			array('username'=>'bob','password'=>'81dc9bdb52d04dc20036dbd8313ed055'),
			array('username'=>'joe','password'=>'674f3c2c1a8a6f90461e8a66fb5550ba'),
		),
		'passwordEncryption'=>function($pass){
			return md5($pass);
		}
	));

Desktop tidy

December 3rd, 2014

A cluttered desktop can be a problem, typically people use the desktop becuase they know the location of the files should they have downloaded them from somewhere, and need to reuse them quickly.

I have written a script that runs on Linux that cleans the desktop up on a daily basis, by moving all the files into a folder with an easily readable date name within an archive folder, so that your desktop remains clean and ordered, and you also do not lose your files.

The beauty of this is that you can configure your applications to point at the desktop, safe in the knowledge that all the clutter from today will be gone tomorrow, and placed neatly within a folder with the date so you can find it, when somebody says “I sent it to you Tuesday”

Just run the script below and it will automatically install, any clutter on the Desktop will archive to folder with yesterday’s date found within the Archive folder located on the Desktop.

You can download it here after unzipping, simply install using terminal with:

sudo chmod a+x desktop-tidy-install.sh
sudo ./desktop-tidy-install.sh

The source code is below:

adding password authentication for a zend cms or controller

December 13th, 2011

This is a very quick way to add password protection to a controller such as a cms controller.

This code intercepts the login within the init() method of your chosen controller, if they are logged in they are free to go, if not they are required to login, the form is rendered and validated against the access model.

The session is obfuscated to deter tampering.

so firstly in your controller init() add

$adminSession = new Zend_Session_Namespace('Admin');
$this->access = new Application_Model_accessControl(); // access control
 
// logged in user
$loginMsg = 'Please login';
$loginForm = new Zend_Form;
$loginForm
	->setMethod('post')
	->setAttrib('id','login')
	->addElement('text','user',array('label'=>'Username','required'=>true))
	->addElement('password','pass',array('label'=>'Password','required'=>true))
	->addElement('submit','Login');
 
if ($this->getRequest()->isPost() && $loginForm->isValid($_POST)){
	$session = $this->access->validateUser(
		$loginForm->getValue('user'), 
		$loginForm->getValue('pass')
		);
 
	if ($session){
		$adminSession->loggedInSession = $session;
		$adminSession->loggedInUser = $loginForm->getValue('user');
	}
 
	$loginMsg='Access denied';
} 			
 
if (!$this->access->sessionIsValid($adminSession->loggedInSession) || !$adminSession->loggedInUser){
       	$this->view->header=$loginMsg;			
	$this->view->content = $loginForm;
	$this->render('login');  
} else {
	// renew session, will always be the "Now" session, but three are provided, see the model 
	$adminSession->loggedInSession = $this->access->getValidSession();
    	$this->view->userIdent = $adminSession->loggedInUser;
}

$this->view->userIdent will always contain the logged in user

The next step is to create the model for authentication in models/accessControl.php

}

and finally create a view login.phtml (this is just bare bones)

<?php echo "<h2>{$this->header}</h2>";  ?>
<?php echo $this->content;  ?>

Thats it!
