WordPress File Manager FTP Inside WordPress

Show you how to do something really cool with
WordPress today and just as you might be in a situation where you need to edit a file
or remove a file that uploaded to your Web server and typically that would involve logging
into your cPanel if you have it in doing some technical things to get to your files or you
would have to have FTP access and FTP program you can figure it all in connect in that way
however there is a easy way to do it in Word press and ominously how to do that right here
in right now so there’s a plug-in called wp file manager had pulled open all you have
to do is login WordPress go to add new plug-ins and do a search right there for WP file manager
and pulls up her to have it installed in him and to show you what it looks like and how
to configure it but not in that order minutiae configure it and then what looks like sorry
have it installed and activated images adds a new option right here on the left file manager
when you have your mouse click on configuration now what’s important is right here where it
says default home location you have to enter�/Just go ahead and enter that in your beauty find
that that says the file managers can it take you to the root of your WordPress installation
you’ll see what I mean in a second and then you have these choices of permissions now
the reason I’m doing this is good I need to add and then added a function file and only
do that for different video and I thought this would just be a lot easier so here’s
the permissions now I’ve gone ahead and check mark all of them by default are not to be
checked so you can just decide what permissions you want know if you’re the only one that
has access to your login your community find just checking them all but most people multiple
people at axis you might want to think about each option that you check so I got the create
file create folder allow download etc. etc. I just have a lot check your you can choose
which extensions can be edited so for instance a PHP file you want to edit a TXT file these
types of files that are textbased and contain code you want to edit edit this and less you
need to any know what you’re doing there is a default list of extensions that are editable
and there’s other things right here so I was just make your changes click on save changes
and now when you click on file manager is gonna pull all of your files now if you’re
familiar at all with WordPress you know that your plug-ins and your themes are in this
content folder here so I can just click on it and now I can see my my plug-ins folder
my themes folder so I got upon a plug-in family use this for testing so I can click on plug-ins
and then Bama got this whole huge list of plug-ins listed never want to go back I can
hit the two dots and that just takes me up up a level so anyways I can click on themes
and I can see all my themes here and for instance here is a child theme that I created and I
want to add a file to it’s all just click on create new file right there in its chemical
functions.PHP and then click on create and so now I’ve got a function file here and then
because I enabled permissions I can actually edited right here actually I’m missing the
view and edit our glasses and I think I might’ve made an error in the configurations let me
go back to the configuration and enable that I just assumed when this in default editable
file extension list that these were enabled by default but I think I got that wrong actually
have to enter your file extensions here that you want to have the ability to edit so for
right now I’m just gonna put PHP and then I’m in a click save changes and him and go
back to my child thing so file manager, click on contents teams and child theme okay so
now I’ve got the edit option enabled here so let’s see when I click on its if it works
when I click a save and exit and now it did so the bite size increase slightly click on
edit again there it is so okay so yeah so it doesn’t work out you just have to go and
properly configure it I didn’t I made some assumptions even I get things wrong so you
can do lots of other cool things like delete files you can download a file edit it on your
local computer and then upload it there’s a lot of things that this does that will make
your life easier in case there is any a problem that you run into WordPress is a prior video

    I have been watching your WordPress videos which are very informative and helpful.

    The thing is I have a real problem and no one has given me a fix to my WordPress issues and my blog has been down for a week now.

    I have shut down all my plugins and rechecked my blog and the issues I am having were still there.

    I also tried other default themes and had the same problems with them.

    My Theme is not displaying side bar widgets

    It is not displaying the original theme background.

    When I try to use the Appearance tools, I get blank pages, 504 errors

    I also cannot create Categories and such.

    At this point I do not know what is the root cause to these problems and neither do I know how to even figure it out…I need help and I need help fast, I have been down for a week now.

    Is it true that if you leave allow download checked (1:31) you leave your site vulnerable to a website password hack?

    There is a video on youtube called "Wordpress wp-FileManager Local File Download Vulnerability" as well as an article: http://www.behindthefirewalls.com/2013/05/wordpress-wp-filemanager-vulnerability.html

    I'm new to building websites and wanted to use this plugin for a child theme but wanted to double check on safety.

    Thanks for any info you can offer.

    How to solve the below issue using wp-filemanager plugin ???

    Unable to create directory uploads/2017/04. Is its parent directory writable by the server?

  • Germán Asencio

    Is this plugin deprecated? Did the name change? I don't find any plugin of this kind with those author names or amount of downloads. Would you recommend any other instead?

  • Jack Trudel

    Fantastic. I'm modifying a theme header's font and location and didn't want to do a local install followed by an upload of changes. Thanks so much for the FYI on this plug-in.

    I have a question for everyone who has an answer. Is there any way for me to export a site from wordpress as a folder, or a zip file, or any other way to open and view that file.

  • James Fizz

    That plugin was awesome at that time. But now i found a new plugin https://wordpress.org/plugins/file-manager-advanced/ by modalweb.

    It is ultimate plugin you should try it. No need of FTP or Cpanel we can manage our files securely from wp admin once install. Even you can access files outside wordpress directory. Thats pretty awesome. And Shortcodes are also available for front end. Try it https://wordpress.org/plugins/file-manager-advanced/.

    Do you have to add the .php to a file if you just need to delete a plugin? Also, do you have a tutorial on how to fix badlinks from a plugin that was not uninstalled properly? I deleted a plugin the easy way, and now I'm left with 5-6 bad links slowing down my site.
