DirectAdmin File Manager : Good or Bad

Mahfuz_SS_EHLMahfuz_SS_EHL Member, Provider

Hello,

Those who are using DirectAdmin since couple of years, you people might have been the previous one & the current one. And, if you keep using it for some more years, you'll get to see the updates also.

What do you think How is the current File Manager for Navigation ?? Suppose, an user first time navigating it, how he/she should feel ?? Is it Good/Bad ??

Those who haven't seen the file manager yet, here's a screenshot:

    Is there anything worse than bad?

    Yes, indeed. CyberPanel & VestaCP has much better FileManager.

    Icon and process confuse me every time. Was big hope that it could be good to transfer from cPanel. But still, cPanel is cPanel. Hope they will improve more quickly.

    I'm not a fan of a couple of things in DA in addition to their FM.

    Its ugly :(

  • gappergapper Member

    it just works, i dont see the problem

  • jcarlo9jcarlo9 Member

    KeyHelp file manager is better

  • FritzFritz Member

    It's bad but not the worst.

    The worst is Plesk File Manager.

    Lack of features.

    I'm Good!

  • pretty sure you can just right click the file / folder instead of clicking the three dots. I think it's better than others but a little worse compared to cpanel.

    Yeap.

    The file manager is pretty unique and once you figure out, it feels better than the most.

  • I think it's good enough. Improvements are always good though.

    @gapper @seriesn @edoarudo5 Not only the System Admins, but also Newbie customers use this & get confused. Then, they come to the support asking how to do this, how to do that. I haven't seen any of the cPanel users to come to support for these issues.

    Another thing DirectAdmin lacking is that the Backup Restore functionality. Although, I know that I can transfer bulk accounts by SSH & rsync it, but, it's pretty much easier to do it via GUI like cPanel, it's time effective option. Root to Root migration that's What I'm asking for.

    @DA_Mark Can you look over here ?? We have plenty of suggestions & scope of improvement for DirectAdmin :)

    it's so bad I cancelled my license and moved to cpanel

  • LTnigerLTniger Member

    It's very bad because customer should be aware of "cache". First you add files to cache, than issue an action. It is from late 2003. When you get used to it - it's fine.

  • stratagemstratagem Member, Provider

    I wouldn't say 'very bad' but certainly not as intuitive or as easy to use as the cPanel file manager. Not a deal breaker though, imho.

    Good panel but still bit hard to use.

    There is something worse, it's not having a file manager at all :wink:

  • first time using directadmin . the file manager is really confusing took a little time to understand. Unlike competitor has really friendly design.
    I think this need to redesign again.
    Not much worse it's just little hard to use than usual.

  • Take some time to understand...

  • Not good :|

  • It's better than the old one but it's still very confusing. to select all you have to tick the box then the box on the tooltip bit twice.

  • DazzleDazzle Member

    Bad experience with DA file manager. Not user friendly.

    Best file manager so far from my experience is aaPanel's.

    Why would an SA ever really use a web based file manager? If you’re using something like that more than rarely then you’re doing it wrong..

  • LittleCreekLittleCreek Member, Provider

    There are plenty of file managers out there. Its called FTP.

    SA won't use Web Based File Manager. I asked from a Normal User/Customer's point of view, how he/she will feel to do his/her small tasks.
