Online File Storage


Hi,

I'm looking for a piece of software that will allow me access to my files from any computer with web access. Nomally I just use FTP but I want this to be usable to my roommates, who aren't that technically inclined.

The school I go to has Novell netstorage installed on their machines, and I'd like to use a lot of the basic functionality of this system.I've tried ATM but it does not allow me to set permissions on individual folders which is one of the things I would really like.

I've been trying to find something utilizing php as I have some experience programming in php and it would give me the ability to change things if I felt it was necessary.

Any suggestions would be great. Thanks

Why don't you just set up a webserver requiring authentication (user/password)?

Maybe I don't know enough about it, but I would there be any file management capabilites that way. I want my users to be able to upload files too.

Make people upload with SCP (it is more secure than FTP).

If you have access to the webserver, you could think about using WebDav.

I cheat. I find a free site that offers web and/or email and
use their space.
