Only show custom php page if logged in to FreePBX Admin

Is there a simple hook built in to the framework that we can check before loading a custom php page?
I am already using the bootstrap to get to some functions.

Honestly I have little to no experience with PHP. is this helpful?

No, but that led me to this, which handles it.

I knew there was a solution, I had seen it before, but searching failed me.

Now to make it work.


@lgaetz well it does not work in a basic test.

So what am I missing? The wiki said simply add that.

My file resides in /var/www/html/custom to stay away from anything updated when FreePBX updates.

I am logged in.

Poking around, if I include ../admin/config.php this happens.

Looking in there, if I rip out the beginning of admin/config.php, then it works as expected.

<?php /* $Id$ */

//set variables
$vars = array(
	'action'			=> null,
	'confirm_email'		=> '',
	'confirm_password'	=> '',
	'display'			=> '',
	'extdisplay'		=> null,
	'email_address'		=> '',

	'skip'				=> 0,
	'skip_astman'		=> false,
	'type'				=> '',
	'username'			=> '',
	'unlock'			=> false,

foreach ($vars as $k => $v) {
	//were use config_vars instead of, say, vars, so as not to polute
	// page.<some_module>.php (which usually uses $var or $vars)
	$config_vars[$k] = $$k = isset($_REQUEST[$k]) ? $_REQUEST[$k] : $v;

	//special handling
	switch ($k) {
	case 'extdisplay':
		$extdisplay = (isset($extdisplay) && $extdisplay !== false)
			? htmlspecialchars($extdisplay, ENT_QUOTES)
			: false;
		$_REQUEST['extdisplay'] = $extdisplay;

	case 'restrictmods':
		$restrict_mods = $restrictmods
			? array_flip(explode('/', $restrictmods))
			: false;

	case 'skip_astman':
		$bootstrap_settings['skip_astman']	= $skip_astman;

if (!isset($_SESSION)) {
	//start a session if we need one
	$ss = @session_start();
		session_regenerate_id(true); // replace the Session ID

//unset the ampuser if the user logged out
if ($logout == 'true') {

I had to change the reference to ampuser.class.php to the specific location, but that was it.

If you have

someone is logged in.

logged in:

Not logged in


Not working with only a call to load the bootstrap.
Logged in, but test.php has nothing in $_SESSION.

Logged out has the same result.

don’t do the FREEPBX_IS_AUTH. That is a really old example and has been removed from almost everywhere it was originally put. If it is on the wiki like that it should be changed

Ignore that in my last post, I added the print_r above it anyway to illustrate the issue with $_SESSION that you suggested.

Logged in or out, if you are only loading freepbx.conf the array $_SESSION['AMP_user'] is not properly loaded.
