want to make FTP SERVER Like sendspace.com


Dear Members,

I am new in Linux but I have good understanding in Linux with.
but i want setup a FTP server like www.sendspace.com.

with this server my organization people can upload big files instead of email them, they will simple upload a file & will provide there USER NAME & PASSWORD & EMAIL ID. After that server will send file locatoin & sender email detail to recipient


If any body is not able to understand my quota Then please check www.sendspace.com

I need to deploy that server as soon as possible
Please do need full.

Are you looking for something which is web-based or direct ftp upload?

Do you have any knowledge of any server-side languages which can support this such as php or perl?

Well, if you "have good understanding in Linux", then you know this won't be done via FTP, if you want a web-interface.

You'll have to write code, as devnull10 said, and uploads/downloads will be done via HTTP/HTTPS. Not sure what you're asking for here...you need a Linux server, Apache, and an internet connection. The rest is up to YOU to write.

Hope that "does the need full"....

Spell out your words, please.

And if, as you say, you have no programming knowledge, how is getting the source code going to help you? There are many links to FOSS projects on Sourceforge, Hotscripts, etc., that you could have found if you Googled for them.

But if you don't have any programming knowledge, how are you going to modify it to fit your needs, or install it?

If you are willing to install client software on your user's computers, you can use sftp for the task. It's very easy to set up an sftp server (install a default ssh server and you're usually done, no configuration required), and it's secure. The client can then run a program like WinSCP on Windows.

However, it sounds like you want a ready-to-use web based solution. A lot of web apps support file uploading as part of their feature set. It wouldn't be a remotely elegant solution, but something like MediaWiki or phpBB may be able to do what you want, depending on the size of the file.

Dear All,

I am looking for php based web application, which can upload, download, manage & email file location to other clients in my domain & out side to world so they can download the file direct from server in my organization or out side of organization.

If U want to see example you can see www.sendspace.com
it is a file sharing website where i can share all big files without consuming my email size quota. if i have low bandwidth lease line for my mail server then it is quite hard to send all big size attachment.

What i will do : =====

If i got any web based application { PHP, java, etc. } then i will simple run it with my 8 Mbps broadband IP, i will use its HTTP & FTP services which will work very smooth & users can upload their own files to my server & send it to there recipients email ID as attachments.

With this function my email server load will remain quite easy.

Right...this is the same question you first asked. Asking the same thing several times, won't get you different answers. You've got two choices: find something that sort of fits your needs and modify it, or write your own.

Did you bother to look on Google, Hotscripts, or Sourceforge for similar projects, as was suggested? As before, there are many such things out there, that you can find. Pick one, try it, and modify it if needed.

If you want to write your own, and you've already got Apache, Linux, etc., running, all you really need is a keyboard. Start writing.

And again, you say you have no programming knowledge, so how are you going to modify something, or write it from scratch, to fit your needs?

If it is just you who is wanting to upload files to your own server and allow others to access, why not just create a simple html web pages and copy the files into your http directory, modifying the website each timeyou want to add a file.
It's not dynamic but without any prior programming experience, I doubt any solution you find will be.

Again, SPELL OUT YOUR WORDS, and please write clearly.

I know that what you're wanting is something that needs customization. If you're not happy with what you've got, you've got two choices:

1. Modify the code yourself.
2. Hire someone to do it for you.

That's it. There's no way people here are going to be able to tell you "Oh, open file xxx, insert this into line yyy, save it, then do.....". We have only vague ideas about what you're trying to accomplish.
