linux default iconSymlinker Publisher's description

Symlinker is a minimalistic file manager that is built to primarily operate with symlinks.

Symlinker is a minimalistic file manager that is built to primarily operate with symlinks. The project is written in PHP.

Why would I use it?

There are many PHP hosting providers nowadays. Unfortunately most of them only provides you FTP to upload your files to their servers which imposes several restrictions on you.
You probably use a content management systems (CMS) on your site and you may want to make multiply installations of the same CMS. Such an installation traditionally involves duplicating the complete directory structure of your CMS, but that may take much disk space and it's painful to upgrade the individual installations this way. There is a much better way.

You can solve this problem by placing the directory structure of your CMS in only one directory and symlink the individual CMS instances that you want to use to point to this particular directory. This is called a symlink farm. Unfortunately it's not possible to handle symlinks with FTP because the FTP protocol doesn't have such commands that operate on symlinks.

This scenario is a perfect one where Symlinker comes handy.

How can I install it?

1. Download symlinker.php and put it somewhere under your webspace.
2. Set the $password variable in the beginning of symlinker.php. This will be your login password that Symlinker will ask you upon login.
3. You may also set the $default_path variable in the beginning of symlinker.php. This will be your default path after login.

How can I use it?

First, point your browser to the URL where you put symlinker.php. Symlinker will ask you the login password, so enter it correctly and log in.

If everything went well, you should see a page that resembles the picture that you can see on the right side. Let's see what operations you can use here:

??? You can navigate in the directory tree by using the navigation bar which resides in the top left corner of the page or editing the path argument in the URL.
??? You can create a new symlink by entering the filename
