The Problem about HTTP

Post by Silence » Mon May 23, 2016 12:19 am

The Http/ETP feature is very useful,But I can't use the specified folder as the root of the Http/Etp Server.
Because I use Http/Etp to share files, I don't want others to browse other folders on my computer.
I think this is very important.
So you can add this feature for Everything?
thank you very much.

Everything HTTP/ETP servers will only list and allow access to files that are indexed in Everything.

Please consider running Everything under a named instance and limiting which folders are indexed:
  • Disable your HTTP/FTP/ETP server in Everything.
  • Create a new shortcut to Everything.exe and specify -instance "SERVER" as a command line option, target should look something like:

    Code: Select all

    "C:\Program Files\Everything\Everything.exe" -instance SERVER
  • Run this new instance of Everything, this new instance will run in parallel with the normal unnamed instance.
  • Take note of the window title to determine which instance the Everything window belongs to, Everything - SERVER for the SERVER instance and Everything for the unnamed instance.
  • In the Everything - SERVER window, from the Tools menu, click Options.
  • Click the NTFS tab.
  • Change Include only to the root of your HTTP/ETP/FTP server folder, eg:

    Code: Select all

    C:\Everything_root
    Only files in C:\Everything_root will be listed and allowed access from the ETP/FTP/HTTP server.
    Use ; to separate multiple root folders.
    If your root is on the D:, make sure the D: volume is selected.
    Uncheck Include in database for all other volumes.
  • Click the HTTP server tab.
  • Check Enable HTTP server
  • Click the ETP/FTP server tab.
  • Check Enable ETP/FTP server.
  • Click OK.

This time,I have been using the method you provided to share the folder.

this means:

Run only the normal unnamed instance,if I use the specified folder as the root of the Http/Etp Server,I can't search everything on computer files.

I am very grateful to you for your help. :)
