security information

The IFM is usually locked to it's own directory, so you are not able to go above. You can change that by setting the root_dir in the scripts configuration.

By default, it is not allowed to show or edit the .htaccess file. This is because you can configure the IFM via environment variables. Thus if anyone has the ability to edit the .htaccess file, he could overwrite the active configuration. See also.

key bindings

configuration

See configuration.

authentication

See authentication.

docker

The docker image is based on alpine 3.5 for a small image footprint, with necessary apache, php and supporting packages installed and exposes port 80

build image

Run the following command from the top source dir:

docker build -t ifm .

run image

The script is installed inside the image at /var/www/html/index.php. Its default configuration is unchanged, thus it will display the contents of the document root (/var/www/html)

Here is an example of how to start up a container with this image:

docker run --rm -it -e IFM_AUTH=1 -p "9090:80" -v "/data:/var/www/html/data" ifm

The script's configuration can be changed by adjusting the corresponding docker environment variables listed below:

PHP config value Docker env var
auth IFM_AUTH
auth_source IFM_AUTH_SOURCE
root_dir IFM_ROOT_DIR
tmp_dir IFM_TMP_DIR
