    An integrated file manager, like the one offered through cPanel

    I am surprised this function isn't available. Most I know want to select some files, rightclick and then select ZIP. Then rightclick, and select DOWNLOAD. And then have a button called UPLOAD to select a file from computer and upload it directly.
    After an install, I want to select the directory inside the zip-file, and move it to another directory etc.

    I won't be able to mess around with SSH and putty. Don't have the time, and I feel it's not needed when it's possible to add something like a filemanager.

    Using SFTP and transferring 15.000 files takes a while - I don't have time for that either.

    Please make a filemanager available!

    I totally agree. Being able to view files directly from the Web is very useful. It facilitates much all the work.

    Also, need Folder Access Control for users working in different areas of application. For example, people working on loading products needs access only to media/import folder in Magento

    I have started to mess around with FTP client : WinSCP (some like it better than Filezilla) After much research I have settled on WinSCP Really looks alot like the cpanel we are used to. Cloudways have some nice tutorials on setting up the login for an FTP Client.
    There are also 2 great file manager plugins that looks like the Cpanel file manager, but in your Dashboard.
    I now understand that Cpanel wastes lots of resources and slows down our sites. Most traditional hosts sell the glitter and cover up all the lack of speed. Glitter sells, but I hear Google loves speed.

    I just signed up for a trial and the lack of file manager is big downer. Simple tasks like Zip a file or folder and download it becomes a nightmare. You have to resort to using Putty and command prompt? :(

    If the platform, can't manage to do it, people like me opt out because its "anti-competitive" to cpanel. It can't maintain competitiveness with other viable platforms and just makes the platform look dark-age (pre cpanel and its like).

    I totally support this!

    You don't need to become cPanel, just install An interface to show the contents of the server/app in a GUI way.

    cPanel is a bloat, but it would be good to see a lightweight file editor feature. It's been implemented in other services like RunCloud, so I guess it's not impossible. It is really handy when you can edit files on the go, just in your browser. It could be awesome if it was possible to enable/disable it on main dashboard, too.

    An interface to show the contents of the server/app in a GUI way (much like the File Manager feature in cPanel, for example). Right now, you can get this information either by logging into the server, similar to the previous point here (SSH), or connecting to it via FTP. Either way, again, this can be time-consuming and critical accordingly.

    A file manager like Cpanel is all that i felt missing on your services and I tried the SFTP but its so clumsy compared to the file manager . The web is expanding and a lot of non techies are coming on board . All os us need our life to be as less technical as possible . Not just for us , but for your own rise in business , please consider adding a file manager .

  • Eric commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Please add a file manager with ability to compress and extract zip files.

    I used this feature with another hosting provider and I feel great when my friend said - you will not change this now? Look. I logged in and changed my file through the web file manager. This is a very good proposition for us.

    I like to use the web-based file manager like the FileManager feature in cPanel. Easy to control and use the files. I am not technical savvy. I dont know SSH and Linux command. Also dont like to use FTP reason being its slow.

    Using web-based file manager is the best. Because upload a zip file of WordPress which consist of thousands of files. It can save a lot of time when doing so. Refer to cPanel, then you will get what I mean.

    Some kind of file manager so the user can ccustomize wp-config.php and .htaccess from the Platform
