Password management with clipperz

Clipperz is a very useful password manager, it has a lot of features and runs all the strong cryptographic algorithms in the browser. However, it is quite difficult to install in your own server because there aren't any complete guide for that.

First download the program and some utilities

$ git clone https://github.com/hacker/x-clipperz.git $ cd password-manager $ sudo apt-get install python-git

Edit 'clipperz/backend/php/properties/php.properties.json' to correct the paths:

{ "request.path": "/php/index.php", "dump.path": "/php/dump.php", "should.pay.toll": "false" }

Build the application

$ ./scripts/build install --backends php --frontends beta

Install mysql, php and apache:

$ sudo apt-get install php5-mysql mysql-server apache2 libapache2-mod-php5

Now we have to create the database:

$ mysql -u root -p

> CREATE DATABASE clipperz; > GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON clipperz.* TO 'clipperz'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'clipperz';

Copy the installation and update the config with your database details

$ cp -R target/php /var/www $ vi /var/www/php/configuration.php

Go to http://clipperz_host/php/setup/index.php click on POG me up an then proceed

$ cd /var/www $ cp php/beta/index.html ./

Remove the ability to access the database via the web:

$ rm -fr setup
