phpUA is a PHP script that enables gaming server administrators to manage their servers via a website interface.
phpUA is a PHP script that enables gaming server administrators to manage their servers via a website interface and to display server information including live statistics to the public. Plug-ins allow for game, language and website design compatibility.
phpUA incorporates advanced features that put us ahead of even the commercial competition!
The phpUA Engine drives the advanced server management website interface. It encourages community support with detailed documentation on how to write your own plug-ins to support games (other than the games we provide official support for in our releases).
This modular format allows the community to become a part of the development team as they can submit their work for inclusion in later releases. Submissions will be reviewed for quality and consistency. Additionally, plug-ins can also be written to manipulate data output in various ways. All plug-ins are written in PHP, one of the Internet's most popular and fast growing server-side programming languages.
The primary focus has been to support Half-Life and its various modifications. Official Steam releases such as Half-Life Deathmatch, Counter-Strike, Condition Zero, Deathmatch Classic, Day of Defeat, Opposing Force, Ricochet and Team Fortress Classic, are all officially supported.
With the use of the optional Metamod plug-in, you are able to view these games in 2D as they are being played, using your web browser from anywhere in the world. Live, extended information about players and what they are saying can also be streamed to you in real-time. The Half-Life Modification, Science and Industry, is also supported, along with Battlefield 1942, Call of Duty, Quake III Arena, Unreal Tournament and Unreal Tournament at basic levels.
phpUA makes use of the Smarty Template Engine by allowing users that are inexperienced with PHP to customise the presentation of information to suit their website's appearance. Other software packages limit you to changing just the colour schemes while we let you change the raw HTML code that is output. We also provide a default style scheme that you can use to get started straight away or to use as a model for your own design which may be submitted to us as a choice of style for later releases.
phpUA has been designed for both novice and advanced users. While we assume that you have the knowledge to upload the package onto your website, installation has been made as painless as possible via a web-based installation script. This means that you can install phpUA with just an FTP client and your web-browser. phpUA only requires PHP Version 4.1.0 or higher. There is no database daemon required!
