• PHP 7.1.3+

Download precompiled build

Precompiled build is created for non-developers. In this version, the frontend (html, css and javascript) is compiled for you and the source code is removed so the final archive contains only minimum files.

  • Download: v7.1.2
  • Unzip files and upload them to your PHP server
  • Make sure you webserver can read and write to /storage and /private folders
  • Set the website document root to /dist directory. This is also known as 'public' folder.
  • Visit web page, if something goes wrong check /private/logs/app.log
  • Login with default credentials admin/admin123
  • Change default admin's password

NOTE: For security reasons /dist is the ONLY folder you want to be exposed through the web. Everything else should be outside of your web root, this way people can’t access any of your important files through the browser.


Since version 7 is completely rewriten from scratch, there is no clear upgrade path from the older versions.

If you have an older version of FileGator please backup everything and install the script again.
