In search of Open SourceSoftware


Hi all,

I am searching for a software that will allow me do this:

I have a web server. I want to upload some files (either from www of scp) to the server (in a directory). Clients will be able to download files through http , and will have access only to specific directories.

Is there such an application? I want just the minimal because this application will be used among my frineds


Thanks in advance

That's part of his signature, not his suggested answer.

His suggestion is at http://httpd.apache.org

That link was hand written, not part of the sig - his sig is everything below the line. Most odd.

i think u misunderstood what i want to do.
I dont need a web server (apache is aleary instaled and running)

What i need is an application(=web site)/php site that will allow me upload files and give me a url that will allow a user to download it. It would be ideal if a could configure per file username/pass

I want something http based. For ftp i need to specify an account every time i have to share a file & then configure permissions to dir.

What i want is to give access (=give my friend the possibility to download a file easily) to a specific file i upload using http in easy way.

For example: upload a file, give me a url of the file (http://www.myserver.com/file1=<a.hash.here> . User will be able to clik there and get the file.

Just this.

Postnuke with the up/download module installed.

or pretty much any cms (content management system) http://www.opensourcecms.com/index.php

or you could simply ftp the file up with a static html page with links..

or just allow apache to list the contents of a directory so they can simply click on the name of the file to download..

so many ways to do this and letting apache handle it with no other web apps would be the simplest method imho, easier than stting up a CMS or filesharing web site to do it.
