Allows you to work with the contents of a public container through a browser in one of two modes: Files or Gallery.

Notes:

  • By default, the container does not have users for web access. You need to create them yourself. Without the created users, the contents of the container will not be accessible through the browser.
  • The read/write settings affect access to the entire container. You cannot set access to individual directories only.

  • "Login" — user login.
  • "Read" — access to view and download any files from the container.
  • "Recording " — access to create directories and upload files to the container.
  • "Date of creation" — date of user creation.
  • "Add user" — creating a new user for web access.
    • "Login" — user login.
    • "Password" — user password. ⚠️ For security reasons, passwords are not stored on the hosting.
    • "Access" — access rights to the container: "Read" or "Reading and writing".

Attention!

By default, access to the gallery through the browser is not password protected.

  • "Password Protect" — inclusion or disabling access to the gallery by password.
  • "Set new password" — password to access the gallery through the browser. ⚠️ For security reasons, passwords are not stored on the hosting.
By default, the container does not have links to download files. You need to create them yourself.

File download links only support public containers.

  • List of created links for downloading files and download directories for each of them.
  • Create a new link:
    • "Suffix for link" — a mandatory suffix that will be added to the end of the link (the link will look like example.cdn.express/container/suffix/).
    • "Link password" — password to access the download page in the browser.
    • "Download directory" — the directory where files will be saved when downloading through the browser. Available options:
      • "YYYY/MM" — when loading, a directory with the current year and a subdirectory with the number of the month will be created.
      • "YYYY/MM/DD" — when loading, a directory with the current year and subdirectories with the number of the month and day will be created.
      • "Mine" — when loading, its own directory will be created. When specifying your catalog, you can use shortcodes for the current year, month, and day.

Allows you to configure automatic deletion of files in the container after a certain number of days have passed since they were uploaded or last modified. For example, this can be useful when backup copies of some data are loaded into the container on a daily basis, or the container is used for regular exchange of files that need to be systematically cleaned up.
