Some words about the "Settings" screen.
The "Timeout before downloading a file" option sets, as the name implies, the delay before downloading begins. This maybe useful either for displaying ad banners or to reduce the server load. When this option is set to zero, advertising is not shown to visitors.
Ad banners content. These fields are for webmasters who want to earn money by showing ads. You may publish any content there (e.g., video, Flash, text, images, etc.). CSS styles of the download page can also be adjusted to your taste.
* Default folders "My Files", "Shared Files", and "Trash" cannot be moved or renamed.
* "Settings" and "Reports" screens are accessible only for the account's administrator.
* Some server-side limits may restrict file uploading. To find out the maximum allowed size of uploaded files, open the "Settings" screen, which also displays the available memory size that can affect generation of image thumbnails and their zooming. You can increase these limits either in your web server's php.ini file or in .htaccess file located in Webasyst root directory.
