    Thanks Hussain it worked, but then o the next day the file manager option disappeared again… I opened vesta.conf and the key was empty… I have already done it twice, and eventually it happened again. Would you know why?

  • Mrinal Rajpurohit

    no longer works!

  • Hey, I have done that. It works. However, that file keeps getting overwritten and the file manager disappears.

    • Mickelodian

      just set an sh file to automatically populate it when it gets overwritten and set a cron job to run it.

    Eventualy FILEMANAGER_KEY will get NULL-ed like FILEMANAGER_KEY=” and stop working.So a cron job like sudo crontab -e (choose editor,i go with nano,or option 1) and put this line to the end of file
    */5 * * * * sed -i ‘s/FILEMANAGER_KEY=”””/FILEMANAGER_KEY=”’ILOVEREO”’/g’ /usr/local/vesta/conf/vesta.conf
    this wil run every 5 minutes and reset FILEMANEGER_KEY back to ‘ILOVEREO’

  • Matthew Productions

    Thanks it worked! I used the Terminal and Nano to do it thanks!
