Using FreePBX Back End for trixbox CE Authentication

Introduction

One of the cool features of FreePBX that seems to get lost when it goes in to trixbox is the ability to have multiple users. The following article explains how to make trixbox CE 2.4/2.6/2.8 use the "administrators" module of FreePBX rather than the standard .htaccess (maint/passw0rd) This obviously is not supported by Rhino, trixbox, or FreePBX and is for informational purposes only that said if you do this make backups of everything. You can not back up the trixbox.conf into the same directory or apache will look at both files. Before doing this go in to FreePBX and make sure you know the username and password, default is admin/admin.

Information

1. Install apache's MySQL auth module:
yum install mod_auth_mysql

2. set authtype=database in your amportal.conf
nano -w /etc/amportal.conf

3. Replace the contents of /etc/trixbox/httpdconf/trixbox.conf
nano -w /etc/trixbox/httpdconf/trixbox.conf

Your file should look like this:
<directory /var/www/html/maint>
AllowOverride AuthConfig
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
order allow,deny
allow from all
AuthType Basic
AuthGroupFile /dev/null
AuthName "Restricted Area"
AuthMySQLEnable On
AuthMySQLHost localhost
AuthMySQLDB asterisk
AuthMySQLUserTable ampusers
AuthMySQLUser asteriskuser
AuthMySQLPassword amp109
AuthMySQLNameField username
AuthMySQLPasswordField password
AuthMySQLAuthoritative On
AuthMySQLPwEncryption none
Require valid-user
</directory>

<directory /var/www/html/admin>
AllowOverride AuthConfig
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
order allow,deny
allow from all
AuthType Basic
AuthGroupFile /dev/null
AuthName "Restricted Area"
AuthMySQLEnable On
AuthMySQLHost localhost
AuthMySQLDB asterisk
AuthMySQLUserTable ampusers
AuthMySQLUser asteriskuser
AuthMySQLPassword amp109
AuthMySQLNameField username
AuthMySQLPasswordField password
AuthMySQLAuthoritative On
AuthMySQLPwEncryption none
Require valid-user
</directory>
These use default mysql passwords. If you have changed these you will want to update amp109 above

4. Restart apache and FreePBX
/etc/init.d/httpd restart
amportal restart
