transfer files over the web, ftp, http or other?


i need a way to allow people to be able to dwl files from my computer. i want to be abe to control who dwl and uploads files. also control what files can be transfered. i was looking at apache and an ftp server but am kinda lost now. i dont care what it looks like, i just need something that satisfices what i wrote above. i also need instructions on how to set it up. i was looking at guides for setting up ftp and apache and was totally lost after the first paragraph. is there a site with step by step instructions to set up something simple that works?

thanks

The easiest way I see, if you want to control users, would be to use http, and some content management system like nukePhp and others. You would have to set up a database for the system, but then you could restrict user accounts, maybe adding an X files per day option and stuff like that.
Sorry if FTP is the only option you want, but it just looks to "primitive" to me...

Are you saying that because of the content management system or the FTP (sorry if it sounds stupid, obviously apache is a webserver and not an ftp... AFAIK)

You should be able to simply add an index.html (or index.php, etc) file to your base directory, which is probably /var/www/html. At least that's how it works with my version of Apache.
