SFTP with Web Interface


I'm trying to find a program (PHP or whatever) that would allow me to upload and download files from my server remotely. I've searched this forum, and came up with Philex at sourceforge and Webmin (i think that was it), but Philex seems to be designed for windows and Webmin has too many unnessesary features.

Does anyone have any good ideas for scripts or programs that would allow a user to access sftp and upload/download files easily?

Another question: is using SSH with ftp the only way to have a secure connection, and what about SSL, which i've installed for my apache already? would that be helpful in any way? and i'm using the ftp server (and ssh program thing) that came with RH9, and i was wondering what they were...like i've heard people say that ProFTP is the best, and comes with slackware, but what about RH9?

Thanks

You can do sftp transfers through gftp.

whoa, thats awsome!! i never knew about gftp before...it looks really cool...

but what i was really looking for was some PHP or Perl or CGI script that i can put in my apache server that would allow anyone else who knew my username and password to access my files using sftp via Internet Explorer, on a windows machine without special things like gftp.

Thanks anyways...gftp is cool

You could use Apache and mod_ssl to create a secure connection. Just make sure that you have an authentication mechanism of some sort in place.

How would i go about getting Apache 2, which comes with mod_ssl and OpenSSL to work with ftp?
