Root File Manager

hello, how to copy backup from /home//backups to /home/backup ? i dont see file manager for root

perhaps developer team can add this option to put File manager as admin/root

You will need to use SFTP or FTP with root access for this. Adding root permissions for filemanager has its own security issues and has to be addressed very often with security. Also it has a lot work for the developers.

The best, safe, reliable option is to use SFTP option or FTP option.

so it cant be like cpanel or cwp or other panel that “root” can browse directly using built-in filemanager to access client home ?

Cyberpanel is an open-source platform. Any developer interested in contributing to the file manager development can contribute.

As for now, the current developers behind cyberpanel project will not be giving importance in providing this change as that can be handled efficiently by SFTP and FTP and would rather focus more on security and fixing any bugs.

that’s reasonable… well as an admin. i must open 2 software if i want restore the backup…

ok then case close

But as an admin, you anyways should be using SSH to update and make changes to your server periodically. Always make sure to update the Operating system and also cyberpanel periodically.

how does one access root via ftp using filezilla for example

Not FTP, but SFTP and SSH works.

You can enable root for FTP but thats not advisable as its a security risk.

ok, i tried sftp in filezilla and this is what i got:

Status: Connecting to 46.101.164.173…
Status: Using username admin.
Error: Could not connect to server
Status: Waiting to retry…

File manager for root is a big security risk.
As you know access all data in once from UI is not a good thing

yes but i need to clean up my directories and move things around

Try an SFTP connection with your ssh credentials that you got from your server provider upon initial setup.

e.g.
username: root
pw: sdgk39dsk

I just did this myself a few hours ago, so it definitely works

use putty
use midnight commander
it was like norton commander or links. very easy… but remember to use it under sudo/root and check chown everytime u move or copy files/directory

i know it’s to much click and window that was i though about cyberpanel
but now… i give 1 1/2 thumbs up to cyberpanel

evryday i was thinking to move back to cwp… or try a free panel from arab.
but then i wokeup… i say to my self
have to get used to
