File Manager / WEBftp
I like it to see a "File Manager" in ISPConfig.
So users could online create, edit and delete files or folders.

And if you have administrator or reseller rights, you could also do this for your clients.

If you don't understand me, tell it me. I'm from the Netherlands and my English isn't very good.

Really I don`t see any reason to add something like file editor to ispconfig because it`s useless and should not be implemented because of security reasons.

But if you look to DirectAdmin or another web control panel, the most of them does have someone.

Or you could install it as addon.

This would not make me a very happy person.

Seriously, this will bring in a sh*tload of security measures into the story.

f.e. ispconfig webgui runs on Apache (uid 33). If client12 (uid 1012) logs in, creates a dir in his homedir, he's not allowed, unless you make the dir world writable, owned by uid 33 or put them both in the same group and set group permissions correct beforehand. Running apache as root is seriously not an option. Throw the action in the jobqueue and let the cron take care of it, but that's not the main purpose of that cron (and the users needs to wait max 59sec.) so also not really an option.

How would you handle these kind of things (this was just one example).

Whoever wants can build it into the system, but for the sake of security, make it a modular and disable it (completely!) by default.

I agree with ezhandossov that it should be a WebFTP client instead of a file manager.
