= Web UI for changing LDAP password Jakub Jirutka https://github.com/jirutka[@jirutka] //custom :proj-name: ldap-passwd-webui :gh-name: jirutka/{proj-name} :wikip-url: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki :pypi-url: https://pypi.python.org/pypi

The aim of this project is to provide a very simple web form for users to be able to change their password stored in LDAP or Active Directory (Samba 4 AD). It’s built with http://bottlepy.org[Bottle], a WSGI micro web-framework for Python.

== Installation

=== Alpine Linux

. Install package ldap-passwd-webui-waitress from the Alpine’s community repository: + [source, sh] apk add ldap-passwd-webui-waitress + IMPORTANT: This package is in Alpine stable since v3.7. You can also install it from edge (unstable) branch.

. Adjust configuration in /etc/ldap-passwd-webui.ini and /etc/conf.d/.

. Start service ldap-passwd-webui: + [source] /etc/init.d/ldap-passwd-webui start

=== Manually

Clone this repository and install dependencies:

[source, sh, subs="+attributes"]

git clone [email protected]:{gh-name}.git cd {proj-name} pip install -r requirements.txt

Read the next sections to learn how to run it.

=== Requirements

  • Python 3.x
  • {pypi-url}/bottle/[bottle]
  • {pypi-url}/ldap3[ldap3] 2.x

== Configuration

Configuration is read from the file link:settings.ini.example[settings.ini]. You may change location of the settings file using the environment variable CONF_FILE.

If you have Active Directory (or Samba 4 AD), then you must use encrypted connection (i.e. LDAPS or StartTLS) – AD doesn’t allow changing password via unencrypted connection.

== Run it

There are multiple ways how to run it:

=== Run with the built-in server

Simply execute the app.py:

[source, python] python3 app.py

Then you can access the app on http://localhost:8080. The port and host may be changed in link:settings.ini.example[settings.ini].

=== Run with Waitress

[source, sh, subs="+attributes"]

cd {proj-name} waitress-serve --listen=*:8080 app:application

=== Run with uWSGI and nginx

If you have many micro-apps like this, it’s IMO kinda overkill to run each in a separate uWSGI process, isn’t it? It’s not so well known, but uWSGI allows to “mount” multiple application in a single uWSGI process and with a single socket.

[source, ini, subs="+attributes"] .Sample uWSGI configuration:

[uwsgi] plugins = python3 socket = /run/uwsgi/main.sock chdir = /var/www/scripts logger = file:/var/log/uwsgi/main.log processes = 1 threads = 2

map URI paths to applications

mount = /admin/{proj-name}={proj-name}/app.py #mount = /admin/change-world=change-world/app.py manage-script-name = true

[source, nginx] .Sample nginx configuration as a reverse proxy in front of uWSGI:

server { listen 443 ssl; server_name example.org;

ssl_certificate     /etc/ssl/nginx/nginx.crt;
ssl_certificate_key /etc/ssl/nginx/nginx.key;

# uWSGI scripts
location /admin/ {
    uwsgi_pass  unix:/run/uwsgi/main.sock;
    include     uwsgi_params;
}

}
