$ raspap-webgui Release 1.0

A simple, responsive web interface to control wifi, hostapd and related services on the Raspberry Pi.

This project was inspired by a blog post by SirLagz about using a web page rather than ssh to configure wifi and hostapd settings on the Raspberry Pi. I mostly just prettified the UI by wrapping it in SB Admin 2, a Bootstrap based admin theme 😄

We'd be curious to hear about how you use this with your own Pi-powered access points. Ping us on Twitter (@billzimmerman and @SirLagz). Until then, here's a screenshot:



Start off by installing lighttpd and php5.

$ apt-get install lighttpd php5-cgi

After that, enable PHP for lighttpd and restart it for the settings to take effect.

sudo lighty-enable-mod fastcgi-php
/etc/init.d/lighttpd restart

Now comes the fun part. For security reasons, the www-data user which lighttpd runs under is not allowed to start or stop daemons, or run commands like ifdown and ifup, all of which we want our page to do. So what I have done is added the www-data user to the sudoers file, but with restrictions on what commands the user can run. Add the following to the end of /etc/sudoers:

www-data ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD:/sbin/ifdown wlan0,/sbin/ifup wlan0,/bin/cat
/etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf,/bin/cp /tmp/wifidata 
/etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf,/sbin/wpa_cli scan_results,
/sbin/wpa_cli scan,/bin/cp /tmp/hostapddata /etc/hostapd/hostapd.conf,
/etc/init.d/hostapd start,/etc/init.d/hostapd stop,/etc/init.d/dnsmasq start,
/etc/init.d/dnsmasq stop,/bin/cp /tmp/dhcpddata /etc/dnsmasq.conf

Once those modifications are done, git clone the files to /var/www.

sudo git clone /var/www

Set the files ownership to www-data user.

sudo chown -R www-data:www-data /var/www

Reboot and it should be up and running!

sudo reboot
