    Best web-based file manager?

    Hello -

    I'm moving away from IPowerWeb after they "upgraded" to the new VDeck application. This thing is horrible. I would like to know of a host that provides the BEST web based file manager/editor.

    I do a lot of PHP, HTML, SQL with complex directory structures.

    Anyone have one they really like?

    Why don't you use FTP? It's much easier to manage your files, right?

    Because if I'm working on a PHP script for example, I can just bring it up in an editor window, save it, switch browser tabs, and reload. single program = faster.

    Using FTP there is probably 3 programs needed - file editor, FTP client and web browser.

    With today's awesome web apps, a standalone FTP client could be rendered obsolete. More integration!

    cPanel's new file browser/code editor is pretty nice. Our clients seem to like it.



    Kind Regards,

    The cPanel file manager is very good in my opinion!

    The cPanel editor does seem to be tops. Though I dislike cPanel overall, the File Manager is a bright spot.

    If you are looking for a file manager to upload and delete files then a DirectAdmin or cPanel host would be your best bet. You can edit, delete, and upload files with those panels.

    I agree, cPanel's own file manager works just fine.

    But if you rather use something else then take a look at http://net2ftp.com/

    Thanks for the cPanel tip. I've been doing some messing with CSS lately and editing in a text editor, saving, uploading, refreshing has got a bit tedious. That's a great timesaver!

    I would recommend to examine FileVista too.
    It's free for one user and offer great UI and administration features.

    From experience, I've found cPanel File Manager to be #1 in user friendliness, and FileZilla #2. I can't speak so much for other file managers or FTP Clients, I haven't really used them too much in depth.
