How come a fix to the file manager


Recommended Posts

A very high percentage of the problems that people are having with osC is that they try to edit php files with the file editor the osC provides them with. And, as many people know, the file manager the comes with osC doesn't work, at least not properly. It often strips the escape characters out of text.


I guess my problem is, if it's not going to be fixed, then there should either be a warning, or it should be removed.


NOTE: As of Oct 2006, I'm not as active in this forum as I used to be, but I still work with osC quite a bit.

If you have a question about any of my posts here, your best bet is to contact me though either Email or PM in my profile, and I'll be happy to help.

Also agree, I know someone that took a live site out because they didn't use it in test and just needed a quick low impact change on the fly. Until I just saw this post I thought it may have been their browser/osc version.

And the fix to file_manager.php should be quite easy. (Not tested though).


line 50


fputs($fp, stripslashes($HTTP_POST_VARS['file_contents']));


should be


fputs($fp, $HTTP_POST_VARS['file_contents']);

Is the backup feature also broken? or do I just need to create the directory?


No, I don't think so, my comment was alluding to the fact that I can go into phpAdmin, create a backup script and SFTP all my site files to a secure backup server in the time it takes most people to login to the admin app.
