FileGator - Powerful Multi-User File Manager
FileGator is a free, open-source, self-hosted web application for managing files and folders.
You can manage files inside your local repository folder (on your server's hard drive) or connect to other storage adapters (see below).
FileGator has multi-user support so you can have admins and other users managing files with different access permissions, roles and home folders.
All basic file operations are supported: copy, move, rename, edit, create, delete, preview, zip, unzip, download, upload.
If allowed, users can download multiple files or folders at once.
File upload supports drag&drop, progress bar, pause and resume. Upload is chunked so you should be able to upload large files regardless of your server configuration.

Set the website document root to
/dist directory. This is also known as 'public' folder.
NOTE: For security reasons
/dist is the ONLY folder you want to be exposed through the web. Everything else should be outside of your web root, this way people can’t access any of your important files through the browser.
Show your support
If you discover any security related issues, please email firstname.lastname@example.org instead of using the issue tracker.
