2.5.1. Description of the file manager

Attention!

The file manager is under development. During this period, the existing functionality will be supplemented and changed.

Window filemanager consists of two independent panels. You can work in any of them.

At the top of the panel, information about the current location is displayed:

  • Connection source and connection name - show the current connection source and allow him change.
  • Way - the current directory, the contents of which are displayed in the file list. The desired path can be specified manually.
  • Refresh button - updating the list of files for the current directory.

A toolbar with the following buttons is displayed below the top panel:

  • « Upload files »- allows you to download the selected files from the PC to the current directory. The size of each file must not exceed 300 MB. If you need to download not individual files, but a whole directory, use either the folder download button or zip - zip it on your PC (best in zip format), upload the archive to the hosting and unzip it through the context menu.
  • « Upload folder »- allows you to download the selected catalog. Attention! Currently empty directories are not loaded.
  • « Upload files from the link »- allows you to download files from a third-party server using a direct link.
  • « File search "- allows you to search for files by name, content and age of the last change.
  • « Open SSH "- opens SSH web client in a separate browser window. The working directory in the web client will be the current directory that was selected in the file manager.
  • « Show folder size "- enables / disables counting and displaying directory sizes in the file list. Calculating dimensions takes time, so it is recommended to enable it only when necessary. When the display is disabled, the file list will be displayed faster.
  • « Show system files »- enables / disables the display of hidden system files and directories in the file list. These include directories .cache , .cagefs , .cl.selector , .config , .local , .ssh , .system , symlink tmp , files .bash* , .viminfo , .gitconfig .

Note

Due to the peculiarities of browsers, the number of displayed elements in each panel is limited to 25000. To work with a directory containing a larger number of files and subdirectories, use SSH.

The file list consists of several columns:

  • Checkbox - allows you to select or deselect files and directories.
  • « Name "- the names of all files and directories in the current directory.
  • « A type »- the file extension is displayed immediately after the name.
  • « The size "- the size of each element. By default, sizes are displayed only for files. The size of the directory is calculated and displayed by clicking on the dash, a second click updates the information. You can enable permanent display of catalog sizes using the button in toolbars. Important! To reduce delays when navigating through directories, their sizes are cached and the file list can be updated with a delay of up to 5 minutes.
  • « Date "- date and time of the last change of the contents of a file or directory.
  • « Rights »- access rights to each of the files and directories.

Attention!

The file manager works correctly only with files and directories whose names are encoded in UTF-8. List items with names in unsupported encodings are grayed out and unclickable. Similar situations can arise when, when loading via FTPclient enforcement of UTF-8 has not been enabled. A possible solution is to re-upload the files by configuring FTP-customer duly (instructions: FileZilla, Total Commander, WinSCP).
