    Default [DOT-file] Ability to manage hidden files (.env) from the web

    Hi all,
    working on Laravel I see that I am not able to manage the .env from the web:

    https://laravista.altervista.org/laravel-5.6/.env

    New features for file manager and editor:

    1. ability to view DOT-file (now it is not visible)
    2. ability to upload DOT-file (now the .env is renamed in _env)
    3. ability to create DOT-file (now it is not possible)
    4. ability to download and delete DOT-file (when visible)

    We know the limitation.
    If you need to manage dot files, you can do it from FTP.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    Bye!

    Probably we can try to create a new file manager (better if open-source)

    FTP was not built to be secure. It is generally considered to be an insecure protocol because it relies on clear-text usernames and passwords for authentication and does not use encryption. Data sent via FTP is vulnerable to sniffing, spoofing, and brute force attacks, among other basic attack methods.

    This is not true if you use the encryption (explicit TLS).

    Bye!
