Manipulate Control Module


Manipulate is a BASH script that allows a user to easily and quickly administer a server. It currently supports a variety of services.

Be warned, Manipulate is still very much in beta stage, use with extreme caution! I have not discovered any bugs (other than those I have fixed) so far, but you should be wary. If you discover any bugs please email btasker [ at ] gmail [ dot ] com with details.

Development on Manipulate has been on hold for several months now, however I have now included support for third party applications, Development will resume at its normal pace shortly.

As of Version 0.4 Manipulate supports third party modules, information on how to write them can be found in the Developer Documentation.

A quick update, Developer Documentation can be found here From version 0.23 this will also be included with the program.

Version 0.2

  • the adding, editing and removing of system users
  • Control of SSH, FTP and HTTP Daemons
  • Administering a Remote System
  • Editing HTML files on the server
  • Disk Quota Administration
  • Remote Database of users
  • A Multi-user program with configurable access rights
  • Web server backup creation and restoration
  • Installation of necessary files on a remote server (Where needed)
  • Ability to use Text to Speech Synthesis made optional
  • Online update functionality
  • Lower memory usage than Version 0.1
  • Ability to restart server

    Because of the web update function, the next update to this page will be (Severe security bugs allowing) Version 1!

    I Realise that Version 0.2 was released very quickly after 0.1 but this in large part to a number of bugs and also the web update function
    Unfortunately I have not got as far as updating the user documentation for these changes, however by version 0.3 this will be updated, and (hopefully) developer documentation will have been created

    Version 0.2 can be downloaded here

    The Manipulate project is officially closed due to lack of time. I still use the software so there may be patches and modules posted here from time to time. Some of the functionality that was intended for manipulate has been implemented in other projects.
