Error during parsing: Unknown directive 'filemanager'

I have no idea what happened. I’m trying to use the http.webdav plugin and this happened. But after I changed my config back. It’s still not recovered.
This is my Caddyfile {
  filemanager / /mnt/CloudDisk {
    database /etc/ssl/caddy/filemanager/database.db
    locale zh_cn
    allowCommands true
    allowEdit true
    allowNew true

This is the error log

$ sudo systemctl status caddy -l --no-pager

Hi @eric,

This was a change made around two and a half months ago. Further details are here, courtesy of the author of the plugin: New old plugin: http.filebrowser

Thank you for the answer, I’ve solved the problem by changing plugin name from “filemanager” to “filebrowser”. I thought it was the database path error but actually it isn’t. {                         
  filebrowser / /mnt/CloudDisk {                   
    database /etc/ssl/caddy/filebrowser/database.db

And thank you again for your answer! :slight_smile:

Also, I deleted the old database and let the plugin generate a new one. I think that’s also an essential step to make it work again :smiley:

Indeed, the author did mention a database upgrade process. If you didn’t need to preserve the database, it is simpler just to delete and recreate it as you’ve done.
