2.5.4. File search

Important points:

  • The search only looks for files, not directories.
  • Search time is limited to 10 seconds. If during this time the process is not completed, it will be terminated forcibly. For longer searches, use search via console.
  • Only the first 150 files found are displayed in the results.

To search for files using filemanager do the following:

  1. Go to the directory you want to search for.
  2. In the toolbar, click on the search button:
  3. Specify your search criteria and click "Search»:
    • «Search by filename"- search by file name. The default is *.*, which means any filename with any extension. You can use masks: for example, ex*e.p* will find files like example.php or ex-xe.py.
    • «Search content (utf8)"- search for certain words or parts of them in the contents of files. The search is performed without using masks: for example, ex will find files with text example and ex-xebut if you specify ex*e or exxe, files with text example and ex-xe will not be found.
    • «Date of change"- search by the age of the last file modification. Available options:
      • «no limits"- the time of the last modification of the file is not taken into account.
      • «per day"- the file was changed no more than a day ago.
      • «two days"- the file was changed no more than two days ago.
      • «during the week"- the file was changed no more than a week ago.
      • «per month"- the file was changed no more than a month ago.

As a result of the search, the form will display a list of found files that match the specified criteria. By clicking on the path, the file will open in built-in editor, clicking on the folder icon will switch to the directory with the file in the file manager panel.
