I develop web sites on private servers, then export them to the web. I needed this plugin to create a directory and file from within WordPress in order to set the user and group on the file system to what WordPress expects on my installation, "http".
I couldn't do this outside of WordPress because "http" is a special user and group that I could not access or change from the administration console of the server. The FileManager plugin allowed me to create the directory and file, which I then edit with WinSCP. WinSCP throws an error when I edit the file, but it still works and I'm able to move forward.
WP-FileManager is really a great plugin, so usefull !
Still works perfectly with WP 4.3... hope it's going to last a lot.
I'm getting the following error after installing this plugin -

I tried this with multiple WordPress installation and result is the same.
This Plugin is really good and used many times.
Does just exactly what I needed, to be able to upload & download files in the dashboard without having to set up a download page.
The only plugin I used to download DAILY while doing work on my clients' sites. Almost on every clients site I install this plugin.
This plugin comes handy especially if the client is hesitant to send us FTP access. Some of our client doesn't even know what FTP really means... lol!
My suggestion to author
Currently while uploading files, it overwrites automatically if the same file name exits. So before overwriting it should notify us.
Excellent Plugin.....Nice Work
Being a plugin author myself, this plugin has come in handy on many occasions when my users could not get me FTP access to their site (for troubleshooting). Easy to use and it works.
