S3 Storage

Every hosting control panel needs a way to manage their files and minimally do some file operations like upload, download, delete, etc. We choose not to use FTP but use a more modern solution that is a de facto industry standard. The solution we chose was to use the S3 protocol that was created by Amazon and became a standard. It is secure, stable, standardized and with numerous tools available to access it.

For this service the chosen tool is the Minio.

Accessing it

In the control panel click the services menu

Daspanel services menu

On the next screen where all avaiable services are listed.

You can directly access the file manager by opening the url s3.svc.daspanel.site in your browser.

Where are the files of a website?

Each site you create has a unique universal ID, as well as each version of it. For each site there is at least one version. And each site has its active version, the version that will be displayed by default when accessing it.

To find out where the active files of the site are, just look at the screen below the field Active Directory:

Daspanel filemanager sitedir

After you have logged into the file manager go to the location of the site files and make the modifications you want.

And every arrow points to context menus avaiable to do file manager operations.
