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.
extplorer directory is not chmodded to 777
(so chmod to 644 or 666)
I've tried all the suggestions that others have put up below but without success.
This component should really be part of the base Joomla 1.5 install.
Note: I did have a minor installation issue where the tar and gzip scripts couldn't be read, leaving me to unpack a couple files manually.
This awesome component is the salvation! Should be a Joomla! Core component in the next release! :) Cannot recommend it highly enough! :) Great work!
Everything is there at hand reach. Wonderful.
For those who have problems, you need to also make sure the administrator/components directory is chmod 755.
for some reason, mine had changed to 644 and I was getting the same fetchscript.php error message you are mentioning.
Great job guys.
I am using Joomla 1.5.6 - maybe the problem is there. But, I really wouldn't know as I could find no place on the extplorer site to ask for assistance.
The component may work well for some, but it doesn't work at all for me.
