Talk:HTML File Manager

From Webmin Documentation
Jump to: navigation, search

On upgrade the old File Manager has been renamed to Java File Manager, but the new HTML File Manager does not show up. On a new installation of 1.770 both are shown. What's wrong? - Arent (talk) 17:21, 12 October 2015 (EDT)

Whether this module shows up for you will depend on how it was installed and whether you are logged in as the root user. When installing a new module Webmin defaults to only granting access to the root user (for security reasons). To enable the module for other users, you'll need to edit those users in the Webmin->Webmin Users->username page, where you can enable or disable modules. Virtualmin also can grant access to this module to domain owners; I don't know, off-hand, if simply enabling it by default will make it available to existing users without some additional poking. I should look into that, since we're beginning to switch Virtualmin users away from the old Java File Manager and onto the new one. I'll ask Eric to take another look at this to make sure things make sense. SwellJoe (talk) 21:11, 16 October 2015 (EDT)
Tnx, its working now. - Arent (talk) 18:45, 18 October 2015 (EDT)
