WebFileManager

FileManager is a secure (SSL), multi-user, and Web- based program for file, directory, and remote command management. It is written in Perl, for Linux and Unix-like operating systems. It displays full directory information; allows file viewing, deleting, renaming, uploading, downloading, etc.; assists in directory navigation; and can execute any command for which the user account has privilege. FileManager also comes with a built-in text editor for quick editing and file updates.

Recent releases

  •  30 Jul 2002 20:56

    Release Notes: A security hole that allowed authorized users to view any file on the system has been fixed. The security certificate has been extended. Support has been added for 29 more OS types. The find function now works for non-root, jailed users. A new option controls whether or not a user can "click" outside their home directory tree. The AllowRootUser parameter can now disable the 'root' user. A bug that prevented non-root, jailed users from creating subdirectories, a "group" permissions access problem, and a bug in the "Command Line" box which prevented using the asterisk wildcard have all been fixed.

    •  17 Jan 2002 08:02

      Release Notes: FileManager now has the ability to "jail" users to home directories, and has support for DOM-based (NS6) browsers. There is also the ability to save preferences across updates, and some minor formatting changes. A configurable maximum file size upload parameter was added, and most browser-caching problems were fixed.

      •  21 Nov 2001 21:48

        Release Notes: The system password support has been updated and fixed. This release uses either the FileManager handled password files or the system files. It also supports MD5 encryption. There are 11 additional file icons, and support for additional operating systems. The stability of fm_miniserv has been enhanced.

        •  24 Oct 2001 15:46

          Release Notes: A possible security hole associated with the effective UID on some operating systems has been fixed. Additional code was added to combat browser caching problems. The "Root" status commands for uptime, memory, and disks are now configurable. The user enable/disable selection capability was enhanced.

          •  20 Sep 2001 16:01

            Release Notes: The Quick View and Context-Menu I/O handlers were broken. They should be fixed now.

            FileManager, as shipped, does not support apache-ssl. FileManager uses "user switching" to ensure security and must run as a root process. Apache typically does not allow root processes.

            ssl server
            does this support running under apache instead of its own server? I already have a nice apache-ssl configuration.

            What OS/Version are you using? What version of Perl are you using? Binary uploads work fine on all tested platforms. For direct support send an email to fm@horsburgh.com.
