FileGator: Libre Web-based Collaborative File Manager for Teams and Communities

FileGator is a free, open-source, self-hosted web application that offers a range of features for efficiently managing files and folders.

With FileGator, you have the flexibility to manage files within your local repository folder, which is located on your server's hard drive. Additionally, you can also connect to other storage adapters for seamless integration and access to files stored in different locations.

One of the key advantages of FileGator is its multi-user support, allowing you to assign different access permissions, roles, and home folders to admins and other users. This ensures a secure and organized file management system that fits your specific needs.

FileGator supports all essential file operations, including the ability to copy, move, rename, edit, create, delete, preview, zip, unzip, download, and upload files. These comprehensive features allow you to effortlessly handle your files in any way necessary.

Moreover, FileGator enables users to download multiple files or entire folders simultaneously, saving valuable time and effort. This functionality streamlines the file retrieval process and enhances productivity.

When it comes to file uploads, FileGator provides a user-friendly experience with drag&drop support, a progress bar for real-time monitoring, and the ability to pause and resume uploads. Additionally, the upload process is chunked, which means you can efficiently upload large files regardless of your server configuration.
