Planning FHFS v2.1
« on: December 23, 2012, 08:45:14 PM »
Well, a total of 25 changes have been made to 2.0.x since the original 2.0 release, and I think it's finally about where it needs to be.

So, we can start planning and requests of a few major projects to complete for 2.1.  Post anything here that you would like to see in the next major update to FHFS.

Note that this is still a 2.x release, so nothing TOO major will be implemented.  The basic design and architecture of the server should stay the same.

Here are the major things I've got planned or am considering so far:

- 7zip: Possible integration of 7zip or PHP functions to server-side archive, unpack, etc via the user template
- new structure: Ability to install FHFS to any directory (not just "C:\program files\FHFS"), and move it around freely
// - streaming:    Possible new silverlight-based media player that can be used for streaming videos (this will be programmed specifically for FHFS) - Initial Build completed and working 02/28/2013
- new structure: A sort of optional "administrator shared" section where there are public server files anyone can access (requested by almulder)
- account usage: A new program written in C# that returns JSON data of all account quota usages (fast, stable, and implemented as an admin tool) -- maybe run on serverstart also?
- local network: Improved support for operation over local-networks only (FHFS was originally designed for external nets)
// - serverstart: Different serverstart structure where it completes the script before it starts accepting connections - Initial build completed and working 01/02/2013 --

I don't quite understand the first three... Number 1 is already possible, and Number 2 already happens (if I understand you).

Can you elaborate on number 3?

Number 4 is down as a project for 3.0, although I'm not quite sure how it would work.  I suppose I could use some standard WYSIWYG editor with server-side conversion to DOCX/PDF or maybe some actual document applet or something...

is this possible?

Yup, probably not for 2.1 though, too big of a project.

Okay that's understandable.

Another thing is, I use HFS to serve maps and mods to game servers. Have a hidden folder with a direct address for the game server to point to. (browsable to with direct link)
I tried to replicate this in the fhfs in the hfs console however it always redirects to the login page. Is there anyway currently or implementable in the future to allow this?

Just put a file in the vfsroot folder, it should be accessible by anyone.  There is an upcoming administrator shared section of sorts (probably in 2.1) if that's what you're looking for.

  Any chance of this ever being installed on a website.  By that I mean that I have a domain and hosting so is there any hope that I would be able to install it there instead of on a personal machine connected to my internet?

Sorry, no.  FHFS is not written in a language that any other server supports, and even if it was it would still require a lot of re-writing.
