Account Directory

This is directory (accounts) contains all site accounts including admin account.

I. Account file description (old style account only)

Each account is described by a file containing following lines. Each line must be here, if you have nothing to put in a line, leave it blank. Line can contains any characters (0-255) but '\0', '\n' and '\r' (return).

  1. login name: this is the name used by users to enter the site. Its length can be upto 31 characters.
  2. nickname: on some account, you can force users to use a specified nickname (mainly on guest account), you can define this nick here. Nickname length is limited to 31 characters.
  3. password: the password is crypted using hotline algorithm. You should not modify it. The best way to set a password is when you create an account.
  4. rights: each account has some rights, they are defined here (16 charaters [0-9a-f]). Like the password, use a client to define rights.
  5. root directory: the root directory can only be set by someone who can really log in the computer because hotline doesn't support this feature (AFAIK). For each account, you can define a root directory. This line is appended at the end of site root directory and can't contain .. .


    if the site root directory is /tmp/hsx and account root directory is set to /this_user_account, the real local directory will be: /tmp/hsx/files/this_user_account

    if you let this line empty, HSX uses / has account root directory.

The number of account is not limited.
