The FileMan mod is located at:


This is how i use:

After a GM user completes signup, from within the mail account he creates a Subdomain Account ( a separate script which allows access for authenticated GM users for creation of one account). The subdomain format is username.gmdomain.com for example. Then this subdomain account is accessible only from this fileman mod (no access thru ftp).

Configure thru mod_vhost_alias in httpd.conf and add a wild card entry in the parent domain zone file pointing to the ip where this mass virtual hosting is supposed to run (on the same server as GM).

  • I have not allowed FTP access as i found that the subdomain space was being used for filetransfer from multiple locations and such users were not using the webmail at all. So id discontinued. You could allow the same in case you have pure-ftpd compiled with mysql support as the Subdomain Account Creation Script creates db based details of the account also
  • What i forgot to add to the above post was :: Compile mod_gzip (presuming that it's apache/Linux combo) as that would approximately give 50% reduction in bandwitdh consumption if the sites are having css/javascript and images.... or would be more if w/o them, besides giving a speeded up site access . For NT + IIS based i think there is a commercial software by name of httpzip or something which achieves the same result but costs in excess of 200 $.
