    Installation error means that the package returned an error code and ispconfig notes it therefore as installation error. So this is not a bug in ISPConfig, its a problem in the package.

    1. What is your server combo?
    2. How do you install net2ftp?
    3. Why aren't you using version 1.0?

    Know this thread is very old but desperately need to use file manger like net2ftp. Since mainly younger kids using at school, need easy way for them to edit some files.

    Think elFinder would be better but at this point settle for either.
    Anyone know of good tutorial for ISPConfig 3 and Debian Jessie for either net2ftp or elFinder?

    Tried and things did not go well:)

    I am using net2ftp on my nginx server and basically the thread you are referring is quite outdated. For instance, you do not need to edit ISPC files anymore but you just need to insert the preferred net2ftp folder name WebFTP URL (e.g. /net2ftp) in your ISPC Main Config.

    The basic guide is as follows:
    1. Create your preferred net2ftp folder name in /usr/share (or /var/www - its your choice).
    2. Create the same name in WebFTP URL in your ISPC Main Config (as said above).
    3. Download the stable 1.0 version from net2ftp site to /tmp and extract it.
    4. Move files_to_upload content to created folder.
    5. Enable it in your apache / nginx vhost for your ISPC and/or others. It should be the same as adding phpmyadmin. (Refer my sample below).
    6. Chmod net2ftp /temp/ folder to 777.
    7. Check all of your net2ftp settings to suit your need.
    8. Check it in your browser.

    My old apache config for Ubuntu 12.04. *Do modify accordingly!*

            location /file {
                    rewrite ^/* /filemanager last;
    If you are using php7 and above, you need a minor fix from icmp github which basically involves three of its files. You may also use their copy of modified net2ftp if you know what you are doing.

    I think that is it. I may write a guide based on this later when I am free.

    Thank you @ahrasis!
    Will review your info closer and see if I can get this working tomorrow.
    Let you know how it goes. Bet many people would benefit if you wrote a guide:)
    Thanks again.

    Basically what I posted earlier already reminded that the previous guide is outdated. You should try to follow the steps I mentioned above which is done without modifying ISPC. It should be easily translated into a working script without much hassle at all.
  10. budgierless

    budgierless Member HowtoForge Supporter

    Ok but I had 2 issues with your steps, because of luck od detail.

    1: step 7= what needs are you taking about when you say ‘suites your needs’, ftp dose ftp right? if there are options what are they and how to apply them.
    2: if using php7 etc., must user with use distros that use php7 but also multi older PHP too, and if else in a script would of been helpful.

    Anyway, don’t miss understand me, I am very grateful but I need detail when following instructions as I am not skilled like you or having a good understanding when using code.

    Please could you make an updated apache version of your mod (maybe add screenshot too), NOTE net2ftp 1.1(June 207) is php7 ready, I do not know what that means but I’m sure you do.
  11. ahrasis

    ahrasis Active Member

    Firstly, while posting this, I am not before my PC, so whatever posted is based on my memory.

    Secondly, you can ignore step 7 if you don't want to customize your net2ftp which basically can limit your webftp to your own domain or ip; or limit display of certain functions via modifying some of its settings files etc. This need not be in a script you are creating or else, it will be too much hassle. If you want, just echo that this can be done manually.

    Thirdly, I am using php7.1 on net2ftp v 1.0 with no problem by modifying only one of the file out the three files mentioned in the suggested edit. I think it was only the one with the browsers' things. It should work fine with lower php version but I tested it down to php 5.6 only.

    Lastly, and sadly, I cannot get net2ftp v 1.1 to work on my server, so I have no clue on how to help you on this. Do post a how to if you get it working.
  12. budgierless

    budgierless Member HowtoForge Supporter

    oh this is odd news, when i tested your style, i used 1.1, maybe that is way it did not work, i will try agin using 1.0, if i can still get hold of that version.
  13. ahrasis

    ahrasis Active Member

    Updated: I got a chance to test version 1.1 just now and it seems to be working on php7.1 just fine. I really am not sure what caused it to fail last time I tried.

    So basically, just download version 1.1 via wget, unzip it, move files_to_upload to desired directory, chmod temp directory to 777, modify any of the settings files that you want (optional) and it should work just fine.

    The files i.e., and, is where you modify net2ftp according to your server needs. The code should be easy to understand but you can of course ask if you are not sure.
  14. budgierless

    budgierless Member HowtoForge Supporter

    Thanks for the update,
    I tested using version 1.0, I managed to get to the login screen but when I add ftp details the page ite page goes blank!

    I'm not sure but I think the issue is you configure maybe too old for my use?
    Ubuntu 16.04
    Webserver apache 2.4
    Php 7.0

    Note: your config says apache for ubuntu 12.04, but that is version 2.2, is that the issue, or is it a .htacess problem do you think?

    Another question: when you tested net2ftp 1.1, did you still need GitHub fix?
  15. ahrasis

    ahrasis Active Member

    1. I am not sure about the apache as I stopped using it and changed to nginx after upgrading to ubuntu 16.04. Basically you just need to copy phpmyadmin current code available in apps or ispconfig vhost (commented out part) and change it accordingly for your net2ftp.

    2. There is no need to fix or patch anything for version 1.1. I used wget to download it as it is. I just chmod temp folder 777 and that was it. I am using this version on nginx + ph 7.1 with the above mentioned code added to apps vhost (port 8081).
  16. budgierless

    budgierless Member HowtoForge Supporter

    App vhost? Please show path.
  17. ahrasis

    ahrasis Active Member

    Sorry but don't bother about vhost for apps in apache since it is using conf file instead. Check if net2ftp provides its own conf file and symlink it to conf-available, then from there you can enable it via apache command or symlink it from there to conf-enabled.

    If it is not supplied, copy and rename phpmyadmin file then modify it accordingly. You can refer to my old sample for apache in the above post. Its conf file should have something similar. You still need to symlink it to the mentioned conf folders.

    I think the path should always be inside /etc/apache2 whether conf-available or conf-enabled.
  18. budgierless

    budgierless Member HowtoForge Supporter

    YES!! got it working,
    net2ftp, has no conf, so i made new version, and added config that you gave, also useing net2ftp 1.1, no extra hack/patching needed.
    thanks @ahrasis
