Install Flmngr file manager server side on PHP
Go into your PHP project and in its root directory, run:
composer require edsdk/flmngr-server-php
Hint: If you do not use Composer you can use a no-Composer archive
And let some URL be a handler. If you do not use any framework, just create a PHP file
flmngr.php with the following contents:
<?php \EdSDK\FlmngrServer\FlmngrServer::flmngrRequest( array( 'dirFiles' => '/var/www/files', ) );
In frameworks like Laravel, Symfony, Yii, CodeIgniter, etc., you can create a new method in some controller calling the same method. A URL mapped to this method will be the entry point of all Flmngr requests.
Later, this package will be automatically updated among all your packages each time you call
composer update. If you wish to update only the backend of Flmngr, call:
composer update edsdk/flmngr-server-php
Using the visual Dashboard, you can specify the URLs of your server to link Flmngr with it.
- File Manager URL is the full URL of
- Files URL is the full URL of
dirFiles(not a directory path!).
Files URL explanation
The Files URL option is the prefix Flmngr will add to any file when inserting it into your content (or returning it into a callback of your API call). If you can use Flmngr fine, but all inserted images are broken, please see this sample to understand how it works:
Flmngr can work in applications where you have many users with different storages. You can programmatically specify
dirFiles parameters synchronously with values based on the current user's session.
Flmngr supports not only your own server but also cloud storages: Amazon S3 and Azure Blob. This is an enterprise feature we offer as a separate option.
