Webmin is superb web panel, however for me it always lacked one feature: file manager.
Webmin has built in file manager that is really good in design and user friendly, however it is written in Java and so is slow and requires additional software on the user side to run.
Googling around did not give any results and I decided to write my own file manager with black jack and … oh whatever
Meet the Filemin - lightweight file manager for webmin, written completely in perl.
For now it is tested and known to work well with Webmin 1.740 under Ubuntu 14.04 and Debian 7, Webmin 1.710 under Arch.
Bug reports and criticism are welcomed
