Ok the rest of the user backup data has been uploaded. Next on order of priority I will be restoring:
2) Mysql DBs
3) Fixing path changes in php scripts (as I find them).
4) Indexer Gallery
5) SSL cert
Once the changes are finished I will open up an official web page detailing the new system and how to use it.
However for those of you who are technically inclined who want to get to their site ahead of me or the curious I am opening up the control panel into a beta test.
The reason for going with a control panel is this gives the users more control and more services. For example, you want a mysql database? YOU can do it! You want email at your personal or Furtopia domain? Easily done! You'll also have live access to your logs and usage data.
The control panel is not finished or even skinned so should be considered a work in progress. IE: "open Beta test" As always Furtopia services are an "as is" best effort service and come with no warranty expressed or implied. Report any bugs/problems you find and please read all instructions.
Furtopia User Control Panel Address: https://www.furtopia.org/dtc
Notice there is no ssl cert yet so it will warn and you will need to give an exemption.
Log in with your Furtopia username and password.
The control panel divided into your "My Account" -> You can view your stats and add new domains to your account. And your domains-> Here you will see your Furtopia/tdl domain where you can make ftp, dns, subdomain, and email services. Then Databases (your mysql), Password changing, and Support Tickets.
The very FIRST thing you will want to do when you enter is create an FTP account to your web space. All ftp accounts will need recreated because the account owner (you) now has control over ftp. For example if you host a collaborative project and want helpers to only access a part of your website (without being able to reach the other parts of your webpage) you could create a second ftp account with only this access.
To create your FTP click on the + sign next to your domain name. Next click on "FTP accounts". Choose your personal ftp login(@yourdomain.furtopia.org will be added to the login automatically), password and pick a path. On the Path option I STRONGLY suggest you pick the last option unless you know what you are doing (that says)-> /yourdomain.furtopia.org/subdomains/www/html/ Picking this path will have your ftp send you to your web html folder. Higher paths are chooseable to allow users to download logs/mail/etc (be careful accessing this! You can break it if you are not careful).
Example: Since my domain is whiteshepherd.furtopia.org if I typed in the ftp login "luckydog" at creation my ftp login would be "email@example.com" since @whiteshepherd.furtopia.org will be appended at the end of my logins. The reason for this is it allows users to pick any login they want without another user reserving that login. It may sound complicated but it's fairly easy following the menus.
If after trying you still can not figure it out no worries. Just send Kada-Ru a PM and we will set up an a ftp account for you.
Good luck and good testing... WhiteShepherd
