You can use it to access and modify the files and directories on your server via FTP or direct file access.
eXtplorer runs natively under Joomla! 1.0 - 3.1 and can also be used as a standalone app.
Easy to use with no learning curve required!
Thank you, thank you, thank you
Installation is simple and usage cannot be simpler than this.
Thank you guys for your superb component.
If you don't have access to a friendly file manager from your hosting provider, you absolutely HAVE TO HAVE eXtplorer because it lets you manage the underlying files to your site, right from within the Joomla administrator's page. Even if you do have file management access from your hosting control panel, you still can absolutely use eXtplorer, because it so convenient, and it lets you do just about anything that you need to do to files on your server. You can upload, download, edit, rename, change permissions, compress and uncompress files. And you don't have to log into the hosting control panel to do this. Just do it from within Joomla's admin page. You don't have to be a Linux geek to do anything to the files. It's all intuitive, point-and-click. Convenience and simplicity combined! I think that this is a must have extension.
It's so good, that my only concern is that if someone ever hacked into my admin account, they could use eXtplorer do anything to any of the files on my server. (But then again, if they hacked into my admin account, I'm already in trouble anyway.) So a good practice is to zip your Web directory regularly, and download the zip file to your own system. Of course you can use eXtplorer to do this with just a few clicks.
