DataBase File Manager

Drupal Modules - Thu, 18/10/2007 - 7:17pm

The DBFM module is an off-shoot of WebFM, designed to store files in a database as opposed to the filesystem.

This change was made to enable mutli-site replication of filesystem data.

DBFM is, in much the same way as WebFM, the file manager is based on a heirarchical directory structure unlike the traditional flat filesystem used to date. DBFM uses AJAX to allow administrators to arrange files in the database in the same way they do with file managers on their personal systems.


  • Application-like look and feel via AJAX
  • Drag and drop moves of files and directories
  • Attachment of files to nodes
  • Embedding of images in the filesystem to nodes
  • Single file upload
  • File delete/rename/view/download-file/attach/embed/revisions(in development)/acls(in development)
  • Directory create/rename/delete
  • File search(in development)

This module is based on WebFM and is being developed by eServGlobal
