vB FTP 2.1 - a FTP client for vBulletin
vB Admin CP Integration by Erwin Loh


Have you ever wanted to edit, download or upload files to your server or edit one of your forum PHP files, but have no access to an FTP client?

Well, this is the hack for you. It basically adds a secure FTP interface to your vB Admin CP. You can edit, delete, download, upload, create, or rename files, OR do the same for directories, all from within the comfort of your Admin CP through your browser.

Version 2 update
1) Ability to SEARCH while editing a file (similar to the search feature when editing templates)
2) Ability to view and change CHMOD of files and directories

Version 2.1 update
1) Fixed a view IMAGE cache bug
2) Fixed version number bug


- features as requested!

NOTE: The CHMOD feature can only work if you have set up your server to allow file permission changes - most servers will NOT allow you to CHMOD files or directories through your browser for security reasons.

Features
--------------

1) Integrated into vB Admin CP - uses Admin CP cp.css style
2) Create, delete, rename directories
3) Create, delete, rename, edit, upload or download files
4) Ability to view and change CHMOD of files and directories (if this is set up on your server!)
5) View, Zoom In/ Zoom Out with GIF/ JPG files
6) Different icons for different types of file (configurable)
7) Ability to password protect the vB FTP file (configurable)
8) FTP functions straight from within your Admin CP!!!

Installation
-----------------

YOU MUST FOLLOW ALL THESE STEPS FOR THIS TO WORK PROPERLY! NOTE: This hack requires PHP 4.1.2 installed or better.

Instructions in the "Installation.txt" file of the attachment. It's easy - uploading 1 file to your admin directory, and uploading images to the images/ftp subdirectory, and then editing your admin/index.php file so you can link to the ftp.php file.

Once this is installed, you can just click on the "vBFTP" link in your Admin CP on the left column underneath your "Control Panel Home" to access this.

Additional Features (already inbuilt)
----------------------------------------------

1. Password Protect vB FTP.
2. Toggle functions of FTP on or off.
3. Type of files you can edit.
4. Hide files or directories.
5. Changing the timeout (if you have trouble downloading or uploading large files).
6. Going higher in the directory structure, all the way up to ROOT


Click on this link to read instructions on how to use these in-built features now:
http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showt...466#post305466

I have added a textfile to the ZIP called "ExtraFeatures" with the same instructions.

If you like this, please click the INSTALL link at the bottom of the thread, so that I can send you updates!

Enjoy!

Hey is it possible to make it so that only certain people can access it? Not everyone with access to the admin cp. Maybe make it require 1 user name and password of my choice?

Also I can't seem to go up any higher then the forum directory..?

Additional Features (already inbuilt)

1. Password Protect vB FTP.

In "ftp.php", find:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Enter a username and password in the blank space - it can be ANYTHING you like, it doesn't have to be your real FTP username and password.

This will password protect your vB FTP. You will have to enter that username and password to access this function. This will prevent other admins from accessing your site.

You can set auto login as well using the variables - basically this means that once you log in with this additional username and password, a cookie will be made, so that you will automatic login the next time. By default this is switched on.


2. Toggle functions of FTP on or off.

You can switch on or off each function of vB FTP.

In "ftp.php", find:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

It's self explanatory. Change it to "false" if you want to switch that function off.


3. Type of files you can edit.

You can set the filename extension of files you want to be able to edit.

In "ftp.php", find:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Just add any extension you like to that list. There are other lists as well underneath this that you can customize.

4. Hide files or directories.

You can set files or directories to be hidden.

In "ftp.php", find:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Just add it to the list. It's self-explanatory.


5. Changing the timeout (if you have trouble downloading or uploading large files).

In "ftp.php", find:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

By default, this is switched off. You can turn it on by changing "false" to "true", and entering the timeout figure in seconds.


6. Changing the default directory, and ability to go higher up in directory structure all the way to ROOT directory.

I made the forum directory the highest directory you can access by default. To change the highest directory you can access-

In "ftp.php", find:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Change "../" to the default directory you want to open vB FTP in - put in the full path.

For example:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

To go to the ROOT directory, replace it with this:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

There you go! Whatever you put as the default directory is the HIGHEST directory you can go up to.

It works. So you can go as high as you want changing that variable.

Enjoy these extra features! They are already in-built in the hack.

My previous post should clarify this. Yes, you can password protect vB FTP. Follow the instructions in my previous post.



Also I can't seem to go up any higher then the forum directory..?

I did that intentionally. You can go higher easily, all the way to the ROOT directory. Read my previous post for the instructions.



Enjoy!

It is a browser-based FTP client integrated into vB. You can upload and download files, something a simple file editor cannot do. It does everything an FTP client does, except CHMODding files, which I can also add, but would need changing of the server PHP permissions, which is not feasible for most servers.

Why would I want to do that? PHP has an FTP function built-in but that needs to be enabled at a server-level, and most servers don't have this set up. So this hack acts like an FTP client, without using the "File Transfer Protocol" based on PHP. In fact, this hack is based on a PHP FTP client.

Why do you ask? Do you want me to change the name for some reason?

In fact, some PHP FTP clients require the FTP feature of PHP installed on your server to be enabled. My hack does NOT require this. I use code that bypasses this requirment. Either way, the outcome is the same.

Also, some firewalls block FTP connections - this hack bypasses this. Which is why I use it at work, and others who don't have access to FTP or can't use it would benefit too.

No, of course not. The file is in your admin directory. It's protected like any other admin CP files.

Just password protect it - this hack has password protection built-in. Please read my posts in this thread to learn how to do it.

I have WS_FTP pro, and my UltraEdit has FTP supports (i.e. open/edit/and save files from thru a FTP connection). But it will take longer if we are through an FTP connection than through web interface.
