Suggestions for web based file servers
Can anyone suggest an open web based file server that supports multiple users with exclusive directory privileges? Preferably php/mysql built but not necessary.
All the ones i found allow all users to access all files/folders with varying rwx permissions. I need to be able to use this with multiple clients each with exclusive access to thier files.

Thanks for the help,

You should look in to unix ACL's (access control lists) on the filesystems. no Linux filesystem. uses these by default, but in many cases its just a matter of mounting the filesstem with the proper option (can't remember the option), and then configuring it like in windows (works the same way), I know that reiser and ext2/3 supports it.

you manipulate the permissions with the commands "setfacl" and getfacl"

with ACL's you can control the access to individual files and folder on a pr. user or pr group basis.

good luck

Were you able to find anything?

I tried using Invision Power File Manager -
But I'm not happy with it.

- no secured access (SSL) that I could tell
- can only really work with files within the webserver directory
- has limits on uploads (web browser/server timeouts).
