Looking for a php app that would work like sharefile.com

Postby smino » Thu Sep 09, 2010 7:29 am

What is teh best phplike app that would give me the similar functions to sharefile.com?
The goal is to allow family members to upload their photos and video of family events.
But each member would have a username and password and only access to their files until I moved them to a shared folder.
I would also like to customize the login screen.

http://www.sharefile.com/

So they login using their email address as the username, and a password I provide them.

Then the next screen has a simple button to upload their files.

Anything like that exist for free ?
Is it somewhat secure?

Hello,

Obviously there are many online site that will fulfill your needs. As for Amahi apps, you could try Gallery 2, LinPHA, or Coppermine. The first 2 are live, but the later is in beta.

Can they handle large files like 1-2GB?
I think I am looking for more of a document mgmt uploading tool, than just photo's. Once uploaded I would move them to a different location on a different server. Think of wedding videos being uploaded by multiple clients, and photos, and documents of all sorts (word, PDF, excel)...

We have a few of them too. Feng Office, Knowledgetree, OpenDocman, and might be a few more. Most are in beta testing, but the first one is live.

Maybe one of these will work for ya.

How about FileThingie? It is a single PHP file that does everything.

Have you tried AjaXplorer, eXtplorer, or phpNavigator? All these are live Amahi apps. I will take a look at the File Thingie as well.

i have tried AjaXplorer but it seems the default setting to upload files is 2 MB
i guess this can be changed in some conf ... haven't looked yet

is there any server settings i need to change in order to have large files uploaded?
i know that you need to sometimes change the php.ini file for uploads through any php-tool
default i believe is no more than 2 MB here as well

(yes i am still a nawb and will keep on asking these stupid questions)

Yes it can be changed in the app .conf file. I am unsure if there is a limit though. 2GB might be too much.

What about having users work with a tool like WinSCP? That does not have the same limits that php would have so 2GB files would be a breeze. Just a thought.
