    Hi,

    I am attempting to use eXtplorer for my ISPconfig 3 (Perfect Server Ubuntu 10.04).

    Firstly, I am going to download eXtplorer and extract it at /usr/share/filemanager.

    Second, I am going to set correct permission so eXtplorer can work in the browser.

    Third, I will share it with other user ln -s /usr/share/filemanager/ /var/www/filemanager.

    Fourth, I intend to make eXtplorer to use ISPconfig 3 database particularly ftp user(s) table that it created. This is where I am now.

    As far as I know, eXtplorer can call or use database when it is installed as a component to Joomla. However, I am not sure how it works.

    Anybody here who is willing to help on this? It is nicer to have a file manager for ISPconfig 3 which its every user can share.

    Thanks in advance.

    I guess it is not that easy to make this work.

    Anyway, I play around and find out that I need to create a plugin and enable it before every site created under ISPconfig 3 can automatically use /filemanager like they use /phpmyadmin and /webmail.

    I am creating one using the available plugins as sample. The problem is, how do I enable it.

    Really I dont know how the code works, because it doesn't. I will have to create for each sites using ln -s /usr/share/filemanager/ /var/www/clientx/webx/web then.

    In the mean time, I am trying to see how it basically shares Joomla users and their permissions in order to use ftp login as its login.

    why don't you create the vhost for /filemanager manually for apache?

    That is so much easier!

    Tried that but no luck.
    I created the following vhost file in the '/etc/apache2/sites-available' then created a symlink of it in '/etc/apache2/sites-enabled'

    It contains the following:
    Restarted Apache but no luck :(

    How does it work. Any tutorial?

    So far I manage to get eXtplorer to work well on all subdomain via clientdomain/filemanager. I use similar method allow webmail to be open from clientdomain/webmail/ . This is the same as phpmyadmin method but I dont how to automate this like phpmyadmin do.

    Btw, I haven't finish learning from Joomla + eXtplorer yet.

    Try this, not tested. (It's just a modified phpmyadmin default vhost)
    Code:
    # eXtplorer default Apache configuration
    
    Alias /explorer /usr/share/explorer
    
    <Directory /usr/share/explorer>
            Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
            DirectoryIndex index.php
    
            <IfModule mod_php4.c>
                    AddType application/x-httpd-php .php
    
                    php_flag magic_quotes_gpc Off
                    php_flag track_vars On
                    php_flag register_globals Off
                    php_value include_path .
            </IfModule>
            <IfModule mod_php5.c>
                    AddType application/x-httpd-php .php
    
                    php_flag magic_quotes_gpc Off
                    php_flag track_vars On
                    php_flag register_globals Off
                    php_value include_path .
            </IfModule>
    </Directory>
    PS: Don't forget to restart apache, after creating and symlinking the file.

    Thank you very much. I'll be testing it by this weekend. I'll announce the result here thereafter.

    Before start make:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install pwgen
    pwgen
    And select one word. Remember this secret word!
    Replace MyPasswd to your secret word.

    Create directory for extplorer:

    The part that you describe in "reconfigure ispconfig" will make your setup incompatible to updates and is really insecure. The salt in a password should be different for every and not a static word as you open the password database for dictionary attackes.

    Instead of modifying ispconfig, you should use a correct routine to create salts in extplorer e.g by using the salt creation routine from ispconfig.

    Good day Till!

    What do think about this:

    Create directory for extplorer:

    Code:
    cd /usr/share
    mkdir extplorer
    cd extplorer
    Download and unzip extplorer:

    Code:
    wget http://sourceforge.net/projects/extplorer/files/extplorer/eXtplorer 2.1.0/eXtplorer_2.1.0b6.zip/download
    unzip download
    rm download
    Set permissions:

    Code:
    chown root:root /usr/share/extplorer
    chmod 777 /usr/share/extplorer
    chown root:root /usr/share/extplorer/ftp_tmp
    chmod 777 /usr/share/extplorer/ftp_tmp
    Create the following symlink:

    Code:
    ln -s /usr/share/extplorer /usr/local/ispconfig/interface/web/
    Reconfigure extplorer
    Edit functions.php:

    Code:
    nano ./include/functions.php
    Find line:

    Code:
    	return md5( $pass );
    And replace it for:

    Code:
    //      return md5($pass);
            $return = 'bad_pass';
            $cnt=count($GLOBALS["users"]);
            for($i=0;$i<$cnt;++$i) {
                    if(crypt($pass,substr($GLOBALS["users"][$i][1],0,12))==$GLOBALS["users"][$i][1]){
                            $return = $GLOBALS["users"][$i][1];
                            break;
                    }
            }
            return $return;
    
    Save file.
    And edit .htusers.php file

    Code:
    nano ./config/.htusers.php
    Clear this file and place this code:

    Code:
    <?php 
    	// ensure this file is being included by a parent file
    	if( !defined( '_JEXEC' ) && !defined( '_VALID_MOS' ) ) die( 'Restricted access' );
    $djin_dblocation = "localhost";
    $djin_dbuser = "root";
    $djin_dbpasswd = "your_mysql_root_password";
    $djin_dbname="dbispconfig";
    
    $djin_dbcnx = @mysql_connect($djin_dblocation,$djin_dbuser,$djin_dbpasswd);
    if (!$djin_dbcnx) 
     {
     echo("<p>Cannot connect</p>");
     exit();
     }
    if (!@mysql_select_db($djin_dbname, $djin_dbcnx))
     {
     echo( "<p>Connot select database</p>" );
     exit();
     }
    $djin_sql=mysql_query ("SELECT `username`,`password`,`dir` FROM `ftp_user`");
    $djin_count=0;
    while ($djin_record = mysql_fetch_array($djin_sql)) {
    $GLOBALS["users"][$djin_count][0]=$djin_record['username'];
    $GLOBALS["users"][$djin_count][1]=$djin_record['password'];
    $GLOBALS["users"][$djin_count][2]=$djin_record['dir'];
    $GLOBALS["users"][$djin_count][3]='';
    $GLOBALS["users"][$djin_count][4]=1;
    $GLOBALS["users"][$djin_count][5]='';
    $GLOBALS["users"][$djin_count][6]=1;
    $GLOBALS["users"][$djin_count][7]=1;
    $djin_count=$djin_count*1+1;
    }
    ?>
    Configure connect to database in lines:

    Code:
    $djin_dblocation = "localhost";
    $djin_dbuser = "root";
    $djin_dbpasswd = "your_mysql_root_password";
    $djin_dbname="dbispconfig";
    Reconfigure ISPConfig

    Edit ftp_user_list.htm file:

    Code:
    nano /usr/local/ispconfig/interface/web/sites/templates/ftp_user_list.htm
    After line:

    Code:
                  <div class="buttons icons16">
    Write this line:

    Code:
    <a class="icons16 icoDbAdmin" href="extplorer/" target="extplorer"><span></span></a>
    Save and exit.
    And now in ftp users list we can see new button, what navigate us to extplorer.

    Looks much better! :) One question though, is this line correct:

    if(crypt($pass,substr($GLOBALS["users"][$i][1],0,12))==$GLOBALS$

    or should it be something like this

    if(crypt($pass,substr($GLOBALS["users"][$i][1],0,12)) {

    Hello, thanks for the info. I followed this steps, and everything worked good!!

    the only problem that I have is when unzip files, the owner of them is the PHP user, wich is not the client:web user, so that files are not accessible then by the shell or FTP.


    any idea?
     
  15. Erih-Gres

    Erih-Gres New Member

    No idea....:(
    I don't know ISPConfig and eXtplorer code so good.
    May be Till or Falko or someone else have any idea?

    I can write, but i'm not linux-master.

    Hi lordblacksuca,

    please read about your problem here:
    http://extplorer.net/wiki/Frequentl...edirectory-the-link-is-grayed-out-Whats-wrong

    It's the same type of problems as described on the eXtplorer Wiki. you can get around this problem by running PHP in CGI/FastCGI mode or using mod_suphp instead of the normal PHP module for Apache.
    If you edit your domain in ISPconfig and select "mod_suphp" (make sure it's installed!) or FastCGI, ISPconfig should care for setting up the Apache config files correctly. Just wait a moment and it should work.

    ciao, Sören

    Open this file using nano or whatever editor:

    Code:
    nano /usr/share/extplorer/include/init.php
    Find:

    Code:
    if ($_SERVER['SERVER_PORT'] == 443 ) {
    Change 443 to your SSL port number.

    It should work, IMO.

    Note: I am working on a different approach though as the prescribed method limits the ability to upload and extract to the users thus is not working as it supposed to be.

    I know this is a super old post, but I just found about eXTplorer. Was trying to get Net2ftp working but really did not care for the clunky looking interface. Ran across this while doing some searches and love the look and feel of this file manager.

    Was wondering if anyone has this file explorer integrated into 3.0.5.3 or if they knew that these instructions still apply.

    Thanks!
