Lightbulb 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.

Try to trash a web folder, site with many small files around 10 t0 30 mb with any ftp client and lím sure you will change your idea. It can take hours, no Joke. This is a big problem if you have to replace many files or a site rapidly. That simple point make me doubt that any server system without a integrated file manager is suitable for business.

Any web hosting service hosting out there have their own file manager, deleting files, folders, sites take seconds because itís directly on the servers. Do you think having a ftp client residing on people computer with all the password and entry point to websites are safer, Think Again.

You miss an important point!
ISPConfig is a multi-server panel, so an integrated file manager would have to use ftp anyway.
Otherwise you'd have to install a separate file manager on each hosting server.

May you like to take a look at my post here: http://www.howtoforge.com/forums/sho...8&postcount=32

For administrative works WinSCP could do the job as File manager (and other work too!) but should or even must be limited to the Server Administrator and Server Root Admin only!

It's nothing for the normal user or even Reseller!

That s, I would be very carefully with the use of WinSCP in general.
Have a nice day.
