FileSystem is the MTA:Eir file management implementation exported as MTA:BLUE module. It is made for those people who are not satisfied with the standard MTA file functions. Its feature-set covers binary stream writing, directory scanning and path resolution logic. It should satisfy all needs regarding file functionality. The modules' source code is released within the MTA:Eir SVN.

Its documentation can be found here. To find coding examples, browse the individual class methods.

Installing FileSystem into your Server

  • Place the fileSystem*.dll module into your MTA server modules directory
  • Add the module into the mtaserver.conf module loading list (at the bottom of the file)
  • Edit the acl.xml in a way that resources require admin rights to call createFilesystemInterface

System Access Possibilities

  • Accessing whole system
  • Listing and editing all server resources
  • Modifying MTA Server configuration

Be careful how you expose the FileSystem module to your server resources!

LINUX: The .so module currently has stability issues due to conflicting Lua versions. I am working on resolving these. Until then the module may crash when executing callbacks (namely scanDir or scanDirEx methods).
