What is CodControl ?

Cod_control is a web interface to start or stop game servers. It works not only with Call of Duty, as the name suggests, it works with every linux game server that uses a screen process.

How does CodControl work ? Cod_control consists of two parts. 1st: The linux service (daemon) that the screen process stops and starts. 2nd: The web interface which is access the Linux daemon. The web interface handles more then one game server. It is also possible not only to manage local servers, but also remote some game servers.

| What is 'cod_control '? |
'-------------------------'
Cod_control is a webinterface to start or stop gameservers.
It works not only with Call of Duty, as the name suggests,
it works with every linux gameserver that uses a screen process.

'-------------------------------'
Cod_control consists of two parts.
1st: The linux service (daemon) that the screen process stops and starts.
2nd: The webinterface which is access the Linux daemon.
The webinterface handles more then one gameserver.
It is also possible not only to manage local servers, but also
remote some gameservers.
For security reasons it is not a good idea 
because the passwords and instructions are send in clear text over the Internet


.--------------------.
| Some security tips |
'--------------------'	
An additional network service is always 'security risk'!
To make life as safe as possible keep the following tips
for your security:
1st NEVER start the daemon as root! Start him only to the user
    that was uses by the gameserver.
2nd Uses the variable 'ALLOWED_SVR' to make sure that only desired
    programs will be started!
3rd I recommend to set the daemon only accept LOCALHOST (ONLY_LOCAL = 1) requests!


.----------------------------------.
| Installation of the Linux daemon |
'----------------------------------'
To install, you need a shell access and FTP, SFTP and SCP
access to upload the files.

Sign up with the user which your server usually start the gameservers.
If you have one user for each gameserver you run, you must repeat the
installation for each user. For each user you need one daemon startet!
Create a directory in which we can copy the files:
E.g.:
       mkdir cod_control

Copies now 'cod_control.sh' and the 'cod_controld.py' in the newly created directory.
Now we go to the directory and make the files executable:

       cd cod_control
       chmod-R 755 *

Now we have to do the settings in the 'cod_controld.py'.
As an example, i use a CoD2 server in the directory /home/gamesvr/cod2.
The daemon is in the directory /home/gamesvr/cod_control. To edit a the file
use a linux compatible editor! E.g. 'mcedit'.

   PWORD = 'beispiel' <-- Here comes the password

   ALLOWED_SVR = [
