ConfigServer Explorer (cse)

This is an original and free add-on product for cPanel/WHM. The product provides you with a full featured Filesystem explorer and a Virtual Console to use within your web browser in WHM. It gives you root access from the top level of your disks and allows you to enter non-interactive commands and see the output.

The File Manager/Console can be an essential tool for:

  • Server Administrators unfamiliar with server shell commands
  • Repairing a server where access via SSH is not available*
  • Repair access to a server due to an incorrectly configured firewall or SSH
  • Edit files directly on the server
  • Functions for files and directories:
    • Copy
    • Delete
    • Rename
    • Move
    • CHMOD (change permissions)
    • CHOWN (change ownership)
  • Uploading files to the server in BINARY or ASCII mode
  • Downloading files from the server
  • Easy access to your server configuration from within your browser
  • Access restricted to the root user through WHM only (no access for resellers)
