haha, I was just here looking for a work around for the whole Email missing from the API issue, for a registration page I was making myself :P

Looks good! I just wrote my own in python, Tho i would imagine php being a much more elegant/web-based approach for this sort of thing.

mySQL seems like an easy way to handle the email concern, tho it would be nice not to have two independent db's for the same info, but a las we are limited by the API I suppose

I wrote this feature just for myself and a friend of me, we needed MySQL, because we wanted to use the same credentials for other services on our servers... But for the public version the MySQL is basically not required... if the developer could add e-mail support to the API I can rewrite it to drop the MySQL requirement... It would make implementation of my script a lot easier for less experienced users...

Agreed. I took your lead and tried the mySQL route, which was nice and easy since I already have it all set up for tons of other services. But yeah, its a lot of additional stuff for your average public user. Hell you do only need it to send a user a recovery/reset link. I contemplated just going a different route until I saw your solution. Much appreciated :D.

Here's to Sindre adding the email get/set to the API. Frankly I'm wondering what he has in mind for the email to begin with, since it showed up last version with little documentation and no apparent use. hoping for robust user contact features and native password resets in the future

Hmm good idea, but i need only the function "Forgot Password" to re-send Passwords to registered users. Can i use it without MySQL Database etc. ?
And what i must do?

Not to step on Sparky's toes...

You can basically think about this mod as really simple frontend, that only does 2 things: create a user and recover a password. Since you send users a reset/temp password via email you NEED their email addresses to do that

The reason for the mySQL is to store those user's email addresses. And while the newest SS does have a spot and db field for email addresses in the original webapp. We have no ability to set or change email addresses from the outside because the API (the interface app developers use to communicate with SS) doesn't include that option yet.

SO as a workaround mySQL is used to store the email addresses to a user outside of SS.

Theoretically you don't need something as robust as mysql, you could write it to just store it in a local text file. and read and right to that. But Sparky (and myself) used mysql since we already had it set up for other things.

Lol, just before I read your last paragraph I thought about a flat file DB :)

I guess I can add that as default DB feature (untill the e-mail is added to the API)... It would make it a little easier...

Why can't you just use the existing Subsonic DB? Sindre has to be using a publicly available database API...

Maybe I'll take a poke at the source code and see what I can see...

Why would I take the hard way if there's an easy way?
Just adding the e-mail to the get/set user API is enough, in the meantime I'll write a flat file DB extension...

I see e-mail is added to the API in the new beta version, I will try to modify my script today/tomorrow...

Edit: So I started rewrting my script... but I have some issues....

For security reasons I'm using the encrypted password in the MySQL database as hash for the password reset mail... The hash has to correspond to the encrypted passowrd and userid in the DB, if so, the password can be resetted...

Issue: Subsonic's getUser API call doesn't return an encrypted password...
Using the username or e-mail addres, or even both to reset a password would be a huge security hole, even if I encrypt them...

So the only solution would be, to update the rest API, adding an encrypted password...

Edit 2: I did update the script to work with version 4.5 beta1 since the email parameter is required...

1. Did you download versoin 1.0 (1.1 won't work for 4.4 or lower)
2. Did you configure the config.php properly?
