everything from HTTP - Permission issue

Post by marcottt » Tue Jul 21, 2020 1:30 pm

Hi all,
i tried everything installed on a server and accessed to the http interface, work like a charm and a very high speed response but when user click on http link document are open in readonly ....
There is some workaround for this behavior ? I understand why but in this way i loose many advantage from application.
Otherwise i think i can install local and index the server but the http was a better solution.
thanks

Marco

The Everything HTTP server is read only.

An upload feature is on my TODO list.

What are you trying to do? eg: edit a text file via your webbrowser?

The HTTP server will allow users to search all your indexed files and if 'Allow download' is enabled users will also be able to download any file you have indexed.

You will need to limit which files are indexed by Everything:
  • In Everything, from the Tools menu, click Options.
  • Click the NTFS tab on the left.
  • Change Include Only to the folders you wish to index.
  • For example: D:\share\folder
  • Click the Exclude tab on the left.
  • Exclude any folders from the index.
  • For example: D:\share\folder\do not share this folder
  • Exclude any file types from the index.
  • For example: *.tmp
