Storage

After running Files app for the first time, a folder _files will get created, used to store cache, config and optional include files. The _files folder is purposely excluded and not visible from the Files app view. By default, the following will get created:

# ROOT
├── cache
│   └── folders
│   └── images
│   └── menu
├── config
│   └── config.php

However, with several additional options, it could look like this:

# ROOT
├── config
│   └── config.php
├── cache
│   └── folders
│   └── images
│   └── menu
├── css
│   └── custom.css
├── include
│   └── head.html
├── js
│   └── custom.js
├── plugins
│   └── tasks.php
├── zip

Change storage path

You can change the storage path from config options storage_path by default set to _files subfolder. You won't normally need to change the storage path, but it might be useful if you want to share image resize cache with other Files app installations, or if you don't want to store anything in the folder where Files app exists, or if you want to move storage outside of the server's web root.
