First of all I would like to tell you all that I really dont have any clue at all what forum / cathegory I would go with this issue, as I think it should be both in the scripting and software cathegory, so excuse me if im lost on that point. And Im pretty much a gigantic linux newbie... As well as the only script languages i really know is HTML and Java Script, but Im not afraid to learn, thats one of the reasons i wanna do this at all. Enough of that, over to the question:
What I want, is to put up a webserver and an FTP server on my Fedora Linux machine. And what I want to do is this; I want people that are allowed access to my FTP and Website to be able to choose from files in a database and then add them to a cathegory which the FTP shares. What Im saying is that I want this person to have a list based on all files in some of the harddrives specified by me, and then be able to move choosen files to a folder which is being shared by the FTP, and then being able to remove files from the folder being shared by the FTP. I dont really want the person to see the folders. I just want them to get a list of all items (and be able to search) the items on the harddrives that i have specified and then clicking the "Add" button will make that files shared by my FTP server. And to not get my FTP share folder filled, I want it to be a "remove" button which will remove a picked file from the FTP server.
The files that the FTP server will share would I like to be on a another computer, connected trough my LAN, but running windows XP with NTFS format HDs, is that possible at all?
I also want to do something similar, but this time I want to be able to manage a streaming audio server running on my linux (if there excist any), and being able to choose what song (of a list of songs i shared or something) and then the choosen file should be played by the streaming server. All this should be managed trough a website, is this possible?
Might be a little bit messy, the question i mean, but im not very well in explaining stuff. I wonder what scripting languages and stuff do I need to be able to do this? What programs? What do I need? Plz tell me everything u can. I have no clue what so ever, but I hope it is possible, and I seen some stuff that is a little similar.
Tell me if you need more explanation or info.
Thx in advance
