Looks interesting, I liked the clean interface. Played around with the demo (which of course does not allow uploading/ editing/deleting files) but liked it enough to give it a try on one of the idlers.

  • Although FileGator looks shiny and nice, I wonder what its main use case is. After all, we have ftp.

    Also, since version 7 is "completely rewritten from scratch" and dates from only last year, I'd be a bit cautious before installing it on a production system. By comparison, Nextcloud is time- and deployment-tested.

    Just my two cents -- I don't mean to spoil the fun :)

    Certainly! Definitely not for a production site.

  • It is nice - thanks. Comments regarding production use noted.

  • It's a good replacement for FTP, if you prefer to had ability to preview some files use H5ai.

    Nextcloud too bloatware

  • Nextcloud is really good specially with integration to only office

  • Nextcloud is in a different comparison class than FileGator, so there wouldn't be much point in directly comparing the two. Clearly, if all that you want/need is a web-based file manager, then Nextcloud would be overkill, but the question (which I asked above) is what the main intended use of FileGator is. If FileGator is a replacement for (s)ftp, then it seems to me to be overkill (and too fresh out of the oven to trust on a production machine).

    As I also said, FileGator looks shiny and nice, and if you're inclined to try to make everything web-based, then it may be worth a look, but I'd also be a little cautious ...

  • I'd put it behind a vpn.

  • Thanks for sharing. Simple and clean interface. It’s exactly what I’ve been looking for.

  • Filegator has been around a long time, originally it was sold on CodeCanyon.

    Used it a lot in the past (before the rewrite) and it was always solid, used it as a way to share an FTP folder on the web with user restrictions, will definitely check out the new version of it!
