osFileManager requires PHP. We strongly reccomend you install suPHP or suexec as it will protect the security of your files. If your webhost does not support PHP or suPHP, consider signing up for one that does.

Edit configuration

All of the configuration info is stored in the main osFileManager file. Follow the steps below to configure it.

  1. Open "osfm-static.php" in your favorite text editor
  2. Find the "Config Section"
  3. Set "user" to whatever username you want
  4. Set "pass" to whatever password you want
  5. Save the file

Upload the files

  1. Log into your FTP or SSH account if you are a remote server
  2. Go to your web root directory. This is sometimes public_html
  3. Upload "osfm-static.php"
  4. If you are not using suPHP: chmod any directory that you want to write or upload to to 0777
    This is insecure but the only way to do it without suPHP


  1. Navigate to your osfm directory on your server in your browser.
    Ex: http://my.server.com/osfm-static.php
  2. Login with the username and password you set
