Finished generic SMB/CIFS service

The general SMB/CIFS service frontend and backend has been finished. Currently no Active Directory support has been implemented because i do not have enough knowledge about this feature, also i do not have a Windows Server installation for testing. But the backend has been designed that way to allow users with more knowledge to implement it via community plugin.

Week review

This week the progress slows down again a little bit due another backend refactoring. While implementing the WebGUI user administration i realized that the current implementation was lacking. Due this i began to refactor the PHP/bash script backend and also improved the Debian package postinst script which manages the initial configuration after installing the package.

Now it is possible to modify the password for the WebGUI administrator account ‘admin’ via the default user management.

Also it is possible to enable/disable/force SSL/TLS for the WebGUI.

Maybe you’ve also noticed that the navigation panel has been redesigned. The plugins are now able to define the order of appearance in the list.
