FileBrowser

Everything you could possible need from a File explorer with all the convince of using any web browser your comfortable with.

Please make yourself aware of the Fair Usage Policy. Directly pointing File Browser to share your cloud storage will create extreme strain on your slot's disk and could cause a 24-hour ban on accessing your cloud storage. It is YOUR responsibility to ensure usage is within acceptable limits.

FileBrowser provides a file managing interface within your home directory, and it can be used to download, upload, delete, preview, rename and edit your files — all from within your web browser.

Please note that in the event you have to reinstall your webserver, this fix will not remain and will need to be reapplied. It will persist over restarts, however.
