userdbadm is a Perl program for managing a userdb database with user names and crypted passwords, as used e. g. by PAM's pam_userdb module. You will need such a database for example if you want to create virtual users for vsftpd.
With userdbadm, such a list can be easily maintained. It takes the database's file name as the first command line argument, then a command (one of list, add, edit and del):
- List all users in the database
- add <user>
- Adds <user> to the database. You will prompted for a password.
- edit <user>
- The the password for <user>. You will prompted for a password.
- del <user>
- Removes <user> from the database.
That's it :-) But I think this is much more comfortable than any other script I found to handle a userdb.
If you're interested in how I managed to setup vsftpd with virtual users: I wrote a small Howto describing what steps are necessary for this.
The code is managed using Git and can be found on GitLab at https://gitlab.com/l3u/userdbadm/.
