This component is a proof of concept for demonstrating container feature of com_files.
Using containers, you can create your own com_files instance from any directory you want.
You will find an SQL file in administrator/components/com_uploads/install/install.sql.
Run the SQL command in it and then access the component in the backend.
In the default layout, complete file manager user interface is rendered through an HMVC call for the custom container.
In the upload layout, there is a simple upload form. This file is processed in the upload controller by using an HMVC call to com_files.
