We are pleased to release an alpha version of SourceBans 2. SourceBans 2 is still under heavy development, and we may introduce significant changes without prior notice. Please use it for testing purposes only.

There are still several bugs and missing features, but we encourage you to play around with the application, and give us feedback. While documentation is in the works, installation still consists of uploading the contents of the "web" folder to a web server and visiting http://hostname/sourcebans/install. We intend to provide an upgrade path for SourceBans 1 in the beta release.

Some notable differences from SourceBans 1
  • Multi-language and SMTP email support.
  • Logging of all admin commands performed on each server.
  • Admins can now authenticate by Steam ID, IP address or name.
  • Server groups and server admin groups have been merged. Admins can now have multiple server groups, which are assigned to one or more servers. For example, you can make a "TF2 Junior Admins" group which only applies to your TF2 servers. For simplicity's sake, you can no longer set individual permissions per admin.
  • You can easily import admins and server groups from admins_simple.ini, admins.cfg, admin_groups.cfg, and even clients.txt from Mani Admin Plugin.
  • The database prefix is now "sb_" instead of just "sb".
  • Extensible through third-party game plugins and PHP plugins, as well as a PHP API which any external script can include to access SourceBans functionality.
See the roadmap for a full list of features.

→ We are still looking for a designer to make a custom theme based on Bootstrap, so for now it just looks like default Bootstrap.

To keep up to date with development, visit our GitHub repository.
Feel free to report any bugs or request features on the GitHub issue tracker. Please do not use this for issues with SourceBans 1.

If you disagree with how a certain feature has been implemented, or are unsure if your feature request should be implemented, please post either in our design discussions forum, or in this topic.

Demo (thanks Rytis)

Any plans for "sign in through steam" for the web interface ?

It's been asked before, but I'm not sure for what specifically you would need to register using Steam? Admins need to be added by other admins first, so you're already registered. Everything else is public to everyone.

I'm not sure it's only about registering with Steam. I think being able to add an admin by his SteamID and not having to worry about passwords would be nice. Then they just log in to SourceBans with Steam. No fuss.

  • I'm worried about that someone "cracks" an pw from an admin therefore I've already made admin names hidden. Also so no one will shitstrom an admin.
  • It's easier to use the steam login and more safe (steam guard)
  • Admins don't have to remember more pw's & login names.
Thats what I basicly have in mind. If steam provides this feature, why not use it ?
We use it in out forum as login and it's very comfortable.


I'd really love to see that as an option

Here is the flaw in allowing steam login to sourcebans.

ANYONE can log into your SourceBans web site using Steam Login.

Now there are a few things that can be done in place.

1: Add the person's steam ID and their access anyway, but don't allow them admin access until they log into the web site.
2: Allow sourcebans a public registration system, but only give access to the people you pick and choose.
3: htaccess password protected location that you give password to only admins, then they Steam ID log in and then again, you STILL have to enter the access of the person.

Either way you are still doing MANUAL entry.

The 3rd point of this is, that's a potentially huge users database of people that you may not even want IN the users database.

I really don't see how this is a more efficient way of adding administrators, I think it just adds clutter.

I think he was thinking more along the lines of still manual entry. For example the administrator would simply add an admins steamid and his name assigning him the proper groups etc. Then the admin would simply need to Log-in with his steam to access the features made available. If an individual tried to log in with steam that didn't match a admin steamid, they would simply get rejected/redirected.

Thought I would have a go and test this with Insurgency2. The web install went perfect. I added only one server so far to test. This server is NOT on the same machine as the Website or the Database.
Here is that link:

|USMC| Bans

MetaMod & SourceMod Versions:

I am getting several errors in the game servers /sourcemod/logs folder.
Here are the errors:
Spoiler


This error here is weird I think because sourcebans.cfg IS in that folder.
Code:
L 08/14/2014 - 13:28:12: [SM] Native "SetFailState" reported: [SourceBans] File not found: addons\sourcemod\configs\sourcebans.cfg
Here is the sourcebans.cfg:
Spoiler

I checked my phpMyAdmin and the tables were created. I am guessing the errors are just compatibility issues with Insurgency2/2014.
Can anyone help?
