Create a Server Files Manager

The Server Files Manager displays all of the directories in the Data Workbench server installation directory, including configuration and look-up files.

You may want to access a portion of the Server Files Manager without having to navigate its entire directory structure or display only a few of the subdirectories to address a particular need. For example, you might want to create a separate Server Files Manager that displays only the Access Control and Users subdirectories, enabling you to manage your users and their access.

Each manager that you create must have a .vw file. You can use the Server Files.vw file as a template.

For more information about the Server Files Manager, see The Server Files Manager.
