  1. Start shadowsocks with manager API, it supports shadowsocks-python and shadowsocks-libev. For example, you can run this command:
ss-manager -m aes-256-cfb -u --manager-address
ssserver -m aes-256-cfb -p 12345 -k abcedf --manager-address
  1. run ssmgr with type s:

config file:

type: s

  password: '123456'
db: 'ss.sqlite'

If you want to use MySQL, the db must like this:

  host: ''
  user: 'root'
  password: 'abcdefg'
  database: 'ssmgr'

And you have to close only_full_group_by when the version of MySQL is greater than 5.7

ssmgr -c /your/config/file/path.yml

  1. If you have several servers, you have to run step 1 and step 2 in every server.
    The listening address in --manager-address of step 1 and in shadowsocks -> address of step 2's config file must be same. For security reseon, we recommend you to use instead of
  2. Now you can use the plugins to manage them. You can read the details in plugins readme page.

ssmgr --help will show startup parameters info.

Usage: ssmgr [options]


    -h, --help                   output usage information
    -V, --version                output the version number
    -c, --config [file]          config file, default: ~/.ssmgr/default.yml
    -d, --db [file]              sqlite3 file, sample: ~/.ssmgr/db.sqlite
    -t, --type [type]            type, s for server side, m for manager side
    -s, --shadowsocks [address]  ss-manager address, sample:
    -m, --manager [address]      manager address, sample:
    -p, --password [password]    manager password, both server side and manager side must be equals
    -r, --run [type]             run shadowsocks from child_process, sample: libev / libev:aes-256-cfb / python / python:aes-256-cfb
    --debug                      show debug message

First, ssmgr will read the config file in --config, and other parameters(-detsmp) will replace the config file values.
