     be, then extract it.

   Otherwise:

     Send the contents of fileman.zip to the directory of your webserver
     you want it to be.
     Note: Sending readme.txt or devdoc.txt is optional.

2. Navigate to the directory you installed it in (example.com/fileman/)

3. Follow the on-screen instructions.


 Usage:

| FAQ
=======================================================================

A: Open persist.inc.php, and change the admin password to FALSE (No

   File Manager.

| The Fine Print...
=======================================================================

I am not responsible for any damage done to your computer and/or web
server, although I can truthfully say that, to the best of my knowledge,
it is nearly impossible for this PHP script to damage your computer
and/or web server.

In short, do not blame, sue, threaten, hold for ransom, kill, or injure
me if this PHP script does not work correctly.
