WebCFG in brief terms

WebCFG – pronounced ›webconfig‹ – is a multi-purpose server administration tool letting you simplify common and uncommon configuration tasks.



WebCFG supports the system administrator through three main applications:

  • Easily define and safely delegate IT configuration tasks
  • Clearly organize work for recurring configuration tasks on one or more systems
  • Quickly create attractive user interfaces for self-written programs

WebCFG has the following features available for these tasks:

  • Manage multiple server configurations for different programs and services
  • Display comments in the configuration file as descriptions in the web form
  • Manage local and remote servers
  • Split configuration in different tabs and improve readability
  • Set parts of the configuration file as read-only to protect the configuration
  • Mask parts of the configuration file to simplify the configuration
  • Execute scripts when configuration is changed
  • Adding your own style (CSS) to a configuration
  • Integration of realtime data to your web front-end(external data, handler)
  • Authenticate users
  • Add widgets to the web form:
  • text boxes
  • input fields
  • radio buttons
  • combo boxes
  • calender popups
  • check boxes
  • headlines

Protect different configurations with different authentication methods:

  • simple (username and password defined in webcfg.xml)
  • POP3, an existing  POP3-mailserver will authentificate the user
  • IMAP, an existing  IMAP-mailserver will authentificate the user
  • SSH, an existing  ssh login will authentificate the user
  • LDAP, an exisiting LDAP-Server or Windows AD-Controller will authentificate the user

Supported file systems:

  • Local Files
  • FTP (only professional)
  • HTTP and HTTPS  (only professional)
  • SFTP (only professional)

Execute scripts and shell commands out off the web front-end:

  • execute scripts
  • pass parameters
  • analyze return values such as stdin, stdout, stderr or any exit code
  • check system values
  • supports ssh, rexec and rsh (only professional)

And: No limits in size and complexity!
