File manager for virtual servers

It'd be great if we had a File manager in Services -> File manager of each virtual server which would run under the same user/group of that virtual server.

Current file manager of Webmin runs everything as root which can break file/folder owners of uploaded files in virtual servers



That feature already exists - however, you may need to enable it at System Settings -> Server Templates -> Default Settings -> Administrator's Webmin modules

also boss maybe multiple file upload, in the current fm only one available to upload

I see filemin was enabled there, I also enabled Upload and Download (as user) in the template but I couldnt see any filemanager icon in Services. The only way to access the filemanager for users is to login as the user and then click on Webmin -> Others -> File manager which is not much straight

It would be great if ROOT could see this file manager in Services of each virtual server.

This is indeed an essential feature imho, a file manager that is accessible for the ROOT user under services section of each virtual server which runs under the virtual servers' user/group.

That's an interesting idea, although non-trivial to implement - currently the file manager permissions are based on the logged-in user, rather than the domain selected.
