CKFinder Installation in the CKEditor for Drupal 7 Module (Enterprise Version)

This website contains links to software which is either no longer maintained or will be supported only until the end of 2019 (CKFinder 2). For the latest documentation about current CKSource projects, including software like CKEditor 4/CKEditor 5, CKFinder 3, Cloud Services, Letters, Accessibility Checker, please visit the new documentation website.

If you look for an information about very old versions of CKEditor, FCKeditor and CKFinder check also the CKEditor forum, which was closed in 2015. If not, please head to StackOverflow for support.

CKFinder is an Ajax-based file manager created by CKEditor developers: It is already included in your licensed CKEditor for Drupal module, so all you need to do is enable it in the Drupal Administration panel.

First of all, you will need to grant the "CKFinder access" permission in the Administration panel > People > Permissions section.

Granting CKFinder access permission in the Drupal Administration panel

Now open the Drupal settings file (sites/default/settings.php) and do the following:

  • Uncomment the $base_url variable and set the base URL of your website (without the trailing slash).
  • Uncomment the $cookie_domain variable and set the domain name of your website.

You can now configure CKFinder settings in the File browser settings section for the CKEditor profile that you want to use.
