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.

Browse

The 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.

Upload

The 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.

Delete

The 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!)

MkDir

The 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" button.

MkFile

The 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.

Unzip

The 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 ROOT directory.

Copy

The 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 destination directory.

Move

The 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. (Be careful!)

Edit

The 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.

Rename

The 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. Untitled Document
