HOW TO: Adding file manager in VestaCP
Posted by Asilah A. on 09 March 2021 04:39 PM
Free VestaCP File Manager for Lifetime: VestaCP is a well-designed file manager. Its graphical interface is modern. A lot of functions are included in it. You can make, delete or rename a folder, upload copy, move or edit any file through your browser.
Note: VestaCP does not come with a free file manager. It is a paid service. To make it permanent on your server you have to buy through the official website of VestaCP.
How to enable VestaCP file manager permanent?
Step 1: Open your favorite SSH client manager. I personally prefer PuTTy.
Step 2: Connect the server using server login credentials.
Step 3: Edit the vesta.conf located at /usr/local/vesta/conf/vesta.conf and add following line :
Step 4: Save and exit the file. Now login to your VestaCP admin control panel. Just login and you will see a new option for file manager.
Note : This will be removed as soon as the cron job for the Vesta update is done.
Step 5: Now make this file manager for the lifetime. Run the command.
# crontab -e
The output of this command is –
no crontab for root - using an empty one
Step 6: Type 1 and hit enter key. A new file will be open where all the cron tasks should be in a single line.
Step 7: Just copy the following code past at the button of the file. Save it.
0 */1 * * * /usr/bin/sed -i "/FILEMANAGER_KEY=''/d" /usr/local/vesta/conf/vesta.conf >> /usr/local/vesta/conf/vesta.conf && sudo /usr/bin/grep -q -F "FILEMANAGER_KEY='ILOVEREO'" /usr/local/vesta/conf/vesta.conf || /usr/bin/echo "FILEMANAGER_KEY='ILOVEREO'" >> /usr/local/vesta/conf/vesta.conf
Note: We can see this only a work around. However, we are not responsible on anything might goes wrong. Also, the key “ILOVEREO” may not be available in a future version of VestaCP. Therefore, I suggest you to buy a genuine license through the official website of VestaCP.
