[rejected] upload mod dir to admin/mods through browser

Post by chickeneater »

if FTP is installed, then it could get the information and be able to FTP upload a install dir to admin/mods by way of a page in the ACP. this way, you won't have to mess with ftp programs and the other junk. also if there is a way to CHMOD and manual copy... just a thought

this would be more simple (that's why i say it could be a good idea) : this only need to modify the phpBB files (thing that EasyMod already done :P ) :wink:

Or maybe even upload and unzip a zip file?

only if the server supports unzipping... that is a good idea though

it should have access to all the $phpbb_root_path files, including the install files, so if there needed to be a change, it could happen

There are a few good php classes for handling zip files, so it shouldn't be a problem. The next step after that is to install 'direct' from the phpbb mods database :)

You guys are missing what FTP is doing. The FTP in EM is not a communication from your client (webbrowsing) computer to the server. It is from the server to the server. In order for EM to FTP from your machine to the server you would need to be running an FTP server on your client computer.

A 777 upload directory would work though.

Or on the phpbb.com server with access to the files in the mods db ;)
