Request for changing the file manager.
Hello, a file manager is a must in a web control panel, especially if you use it for edits, so also a good editor is priceless.
The functions are all there (except thrown at a bunch of icons, not at all well placed), but I guess we all hate it for years:
-I know it since webmin didn’t had any brothers, did it change at all?
-how should it be changed? well not using java in the first place wich for me always created weird problems, or at least a different applet;
-drag&drop, delete with the keyboard etc sucks as root, this a no-no, but come on, at least a small right click menu and the scroll?
-it should have a multiple file uploader not just zips but for individual files; and when you extract a zip it should also ask for overwrite, not just to throw an error
-it’s ugly like hell, sometimes i work for hours with it and… well… it depresses me to the point that I’m hating my servers.
-in linux now after the latest Java updates It stops responding repeteadly, on two different machines running OpenSUSE (in any browser) and on two servers running CentOS (so I have also two File Managers, thought that could be a problem locally for one of them but two?) so now I don’t have a file manager anymore.
-in windows 7 worked but hardly, if you opened more instances.
-in linux now works only if i don’t open any other websites/tabs but that’s just wrong, and whow do you make it work in linux, the copy paste from sources external to the applet? You can copy paste but only in it, not from the browser (a path for example) or from the editor (a line a code into the applet’s editor. In windows this works - in linux it doesn’t. Now that’s some eratic behaviour.
-as a sidenote I didn’t see any other Java weird behaviour except… with the one thing that interests me most, the Webmin File Manager. I guess this is the only reason for having Java installed?
And something like this should be with shortcuts in the first page, under the Virtualmin menu, along with the command shell, a link to logs etc. Ah the SSH login module, that’s also a weird little one And in Cloudmin I mentain my position stated here http://www.virtualmin.com/node/23097 , for the same reasons. There were plans in moving all this to HTML5?
Come on guys, let’s raise +1s for changing the File Manager, and I’m sure the Webmin team will do their best to provide something else.
If something open source can’t be found, I’m willin to pay for such an extra-deluxe-platinum-whatever-webmin-module. Once, no subscriptions pls here - it could be an ideea to offer for sale such thingys… extra modules I mean, for you and for us.
