WebShell in Dreamhost?

apps

#1

I was wondering, does anybody has a solution for doing something like a webshell ( a web-app that allows me to upload, delete, move files around in the directories through a web interface ).

I love the shell and ftp access but sometimes i wish to update my site or test some stuff while @ work and i cant do it because the firewall there.

If anybody has any idea how to set this up, i would apreciate it.

I’ve been pleased with the free AutoIndex PHP package http://freshmeat.net/projects/autoindex/, esp. the version for PHP v5.

“AutoIndex is a PHP script that makes a table that lists the files in a directory, and lets users access the files and subdirectories. It includes searching, icons for each file type, an admin panel, uploads, access logging, file descriptions, and more.”

Indeed, it does what i want. Thanks. One question tho.
I installed it in it’s own directory and it seems it can only see the hiearchy below itself. how can i tell it to watch some other place? or how do i put it in the top level hierarchy for my domain? If i cant upload new html files or modify existing ones… then there is no much point. ( i guess i could create a test folder inside it where all my php/html/css would go and afterwards i can move them to the rightplace )

Hi,
Glad you found it useful.
I think you will find that the SF forum for that project will answer your questions.
