This is a little project whitch aims to enhance the file explorer of the PirateBox web interface. You should at least know what SSH means if you want to make this upgrade : no self-extracting sh*ts for the moment.

What we are doing here is replacing the upload form (droopy) and the file listing (simpleserver) by a full-ajax interface based on a cgi-bin script. I use elFinder with its python connector. You have to use the 1.x branch because the connector is not able to talk with 2.x API. Original sources :


How to Install :

Fetch the elFinder special package to your box : Get the package here : Untar and upload to your box (not necessary in this order) at /opt/piratebox/explorer.

		mkdir /tmp/pbox && cd /tmp/pbox
		wget -O toto.tar 
		[Connect to your box WLAN]
		scp -r /tmp/pbox/explorer root@
Replace the existing piratebox services launcher by the special one.
	Upload to your box, dont forget to make a backup, and replace /opt/piratebox/init.d/piratebox
		wget -O toto.tar 
		scp -r /tmp/pbox/explorer root@
		[Connect to your box over SSH]
		mv /opt/piratebox/init.d/piratebox /opt/piratebox/backups/piratebox-init.d
		mv /tmp/piratebox-init.d /opt/piratebox/init.d/piratebox

*Allow non-root users to modify files stored on the usb device.
	Modify your fstab and chmod your usb storage via SSH :
		$ mv /etc/config/fstab /etc/config/fstab.bak
		$ sed -i -e "s/[0-9]*;#SAISON#/${SEASON};#SAISON#/g" /etc/config/fstab;
		$ sed -i -e "s/[0-9]*;#SAISON#/${SEASON};#SAISON#/g" /etc/config/fstab;
		$ chmod -R 777 /opt/piratebox/share
*Reboot and enjoy!

How to roolback

$ mv /opt/piratebox/backups/piratebox-init.d /opt/piratebox/init.d/piratebox 
$ mv /etc/config/fstab.bak /etc/config/fstab
$ reboot

What's missing :

It's not the latest release of elFinder : I use the 1.x branche because the python connector doesn't work with the 2.x one.
