I need a filemanager for user space (i.e. /home) for my users that is accessible using a web browser. It doesn't have to be super featured, just the basic folder browsing, click to view / download a file / change folders, delete, upload.

What would you recommend?


Webmin is providing a web based file manager.

However, it is using the java plugin so has some trouble with recent browsers and JVMs. Hopefully, there is a new, html5 based, replacement being developed, filemin, which might suit your needs.

FTP? I think most browsers support it directly. If not a plugin.
