How to Install Ajaxplorer File manager on zpanel

In this tutorial, I will guide you step by step how to install and setup Ajaxplorer file manager on zPanel CP.Before proceeding further I am assuming here that you have already setup zPanel on your VPS.If you don’t have an idea about it you can read my previous article on how to install zpanel on CentOS VPS.

Ajaxplorer is an open source File Browser or File Manager software built with some Ajax cool effects. However it is free and awesome. It is really a great way to manage all your files in your server if you don’t want to use FTP.

Steps to install Ajaxplorer

Login to your server as a root user.

First of all we need to check zppy repos , for that execute the following command

zppy  update

Now we need to Remove the already install repos. If you haven’t added any repo after installing Zpanelx CP, Just run the following commands in SSH client:

zppy repo remove

zppy update

Then add an additional repo for zPanel

zppy repo add 
zppy repo add

Now run the following command to update the repo

zppy update

Finally, below is the main command to download and install Ajaxplorer on your server:

zppy install ajaxplorer

Go to your favorite web browser, open the login page of your zPanel server then login as zadmin.

Go to Server Admin >> Module Admin menu.

Next, enable Ajaxplorer module for Administrator, Reseller and Client then hit the Save Changes button.

Before testing, we will do some necessary checks. For this go to Putty and issue this command;nano /etc/zpanel/configs/apache/httpd.conf

Make sure the following line is as below:

php_admin_value upload_tmp_dir /var/zpanel/temp

Now go back to zPanel configuration page in your browser. Click on File Management menu >> then Ajaxplorer >> followed by clicking the Launch Ajaxplorer button.

You’ll see that a new browser window appears launching Ajaxplorer main UI. Wait until the interface fully loaded.

And we are done.
