Default Auth service

By default, users are stored in json file. For some use-cases, this is enough. It also makes this app lightweight since no database is required.

Default handler accepts only file name parameter. This file should be writable by the web server.

        'Filegator\Services\Auth\AuthInterface' => [
            'handler' => '\Filegator\Services\Auth\Adapters\JsonFile',
            'config' => [
                'file' => __DIR__.'/private/users.json',

Configuring Auth service to use database

You can use mysql database to store your users.

First, create a table users with this sql query:

CREATE TABLE `users` (
    `id` int(10) NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,
    `username` varchar(255) NOT NULL,
    `name` varchar(255) NOT NULL,
    `role` varchar(20) NOT NULL,
    `permissions` varchar(200) NOT NULL,
    `homedir` varchar(2000) NOT NULL,
    `password` varchar(255) NOT NULL,
    PRIMARY KEY (`id`),
    KEY `username` (`username`)
) CHARSET=utf8 COLLATE=utf8_bin;

Then, import default users with sql query:

INSERT INTO `users` (`username`, `name`, `role`, `permissions`, `homedir`, `password`)
('guest', 'Guest', 'guest', '', '/', ''),
('admin', 'Admin', 'admin', 'read|write|upload|download|batchdownload|zip', '/', '$2y$10$Nu35w4pteLfc7BDCIkDPkecjw8wsH8Y2GMfIewUbXLT7zzW6WOxwq');

At the end, open configuration.php and update AuthInterface handler to reflect your database settings:

        'Filegator\Services\Auth\AuthInterface' => [
            'handler' => '\Filegator\Services\Auth\Adapters\Database',
            'config' => [
                'driver' => 'mysqli',
                'host' => 'localhost',
                'username' => 'root',
                'password' => 'password',
                'database' => 'filegator',

API authentication

Front-end will use session based authentication to authenticate and consume the back-end.
