read_me.txt

The download includes this read-me file it provides information for installing the server and default passwords and names.

General notes:

1) To avoid confusion the download adds two new files named:
        New_server_start.bat
        New_stop.bat

These are the original Server_Start.bat and Stop.bat modified to run FileZiller FTPd  

a) If you have not modified the originals delete them and rename as following:

Rename : New_server_start.bat to Server_Start.bat
Rename:  New_stop.bat to Stop.bat

b) If you have modified the originals you can delete New_server_start.bat and New_stop.bat

You now need to update your modified Uniform Server files as follows: 

b1) Server_Start.bat - Modifications:

Add the section shown between the origunal lines shown:

set closeit=%programit%close.bat %Disk%

:### New for FileZilla Server ##################################
CALL udrive\filezilla_server\change_drive_letter.bat %Disk%
CALL udrive\filezilla_server\filezilla_start.bat
:###############################################################

%Disk%

b2) Stop.bat  - Modifications:

Add the section shown between the origunal lines shown:

@echo off

:### New for FileZilla Server##################
CALL udrive\filezilla_server\filezilla_stop.bat
:##############################################

udrive\home\admin\program\pskill.exe Apache.exe c

2) File filezilla_admin.bat provides independent control of the interface.
Double click to start the administration interface. To stop use the program's File > exit.

Connect to server (Admin)
Server Address: 127.0.0.1
Port: 14147
Administration password: root

3) User
The FTP server has a single user pre-configured either use this for testing or delete and create a new user.

User Name: fred
User password: fred123

4) Server Certificate
Create a new certificate or use the existing one for testing.

5) Security
Before putting the server online create a new certificate, the downloaded one is compromised it’s only included for testing.

Also either delete user fred or create a new password. The downloaded password is compromised for this user.

Uniform Server 4.0-Mona Update

The batch files for Uniform Server 4.0-Mona have changed significantly however the lines of code to run FileZilla Server remain unchanged.

Their location in these two batch files Server_Start.bat and Stop.bat are as follows: (Place the code blocks between the lines shown.)

Server_Start.bat

%Disk%: 
IF NOT EXIST %Disk%:\NUL GOTO :next

:### New for FileZilla Server ##################################
rem Update FileZilla drive letter 
CALL \filezilla_server\change_drive_letter.bat %Disk%
rem Start FileZilla Server 
CALL \filezilla_server\filezilla_start.bat
:###############################################################

rem ### Drive was created. Create variables for paths and programs 
set apachepath=\usr\local\apache2\

Note: udrive has been removed from the CALL lines as shown.

Stop.bat

if exist udrive\usr\local\apache2\logs\drive.txt del udrive\usr\local\apache2\logs\drive.txt

:### New for FileZilla Server##################
CALL udrive\filezilla_server\filezilla_stop.bat
:##############################################

rem Stop Apache indirectly stops MySQL

Note: Copy over libeay32.dll and ssleay32.dll

From folder: UniServer\udrive\plugins\key_cert_gen\gen

To: UniServer\udrive\filezilla_server

Then create a new certificate. The above are the latest libraries hence its important to use them.
