OpenIndex provides a web site file manager using a web browser. The
server is running Apache with mod_perl. OpenIndex is a mod_perl Apache
module integrated into the Apache web server.
OpenIndex provides a ROOT directory tree and commands that allow you to
manage your web site. The ROOT tree is the location where the web-server
provides web pages to your web-browsers.
Before you can execute most command you must first select a file
or directory. You select an item by placing a check in the
select check box just to the left of the files and directory
items listed the Directory index.
Most of the commands (except for the "Browse", "Upload", "Delete", and
"Help") require both a "select item" and a "destination" argument.
BrowseThe Browse command activates a local pop-up dialog window which allows
you to select a file on your computer to be uploaded. An "Upload"
command is required to perform the actual file transfer to the server.
UploadThe Uplaod command takes the selected local "Browse" file and
transferes it the destination directory on the web server.
The maximum file size which can be uploaded has been set to bytes by the web master.
DeleteThe Delete command deletes the "select items". If an item is a
directory it will delete all the files and sub-directories contained
there in. (Be careful!)
MkDirThe Mkdir command creates a new directory with the name specified in the
text "Destination" field. For example, to create a directory named "test",
just type "test" into the "Destination" field and then click on the "Mkdir"
MkFileThe Mkdir command creates a new file and activates the file editor.
This allow you to create a new text file. You must specify the
new file name in the "Destination" text field.
UnzipThe Unzip command takes the selected zip file and expands it to
the "destination" directory. This is a convienant way to populate
your web site by, first locally create a zip file containing your
site files, upload it, and then Unzipping it into the web server's
CopyThe Copy command copies the "select item" to the destination. The
selected item may either be a file or a directory. For example, if a file
is selected and the "Copy" button is clicked, the file will be copied to the
MoveThe Move command moves the "select item" to the destination. The selected
item may either be a file or a directory. For example, if a file is selected
and the "Copy" button is clicked, the file will be copied to the destination
directory. If the destination already exists, it will be over written.
EditThe Edit command allows you to edit a text file such as a HTML file.
You can only edit one file at a time, so only select one item at a
time. If you need to create a new file use the "MkFile" command.
RenameThe Rename allows you to change the name of a file or directory.
You must first select an item, then enter new name into the
"Destination" field, and then click the Rename button.
