storing files on home server for downloading elsewhere

Msg#: 4580412 posted 9:24 pm on Jun 2, 2013 (gmt 0)

I am new to this and have 1 thing that I want to do. I am not sure where to look for help with this.
I got Apache web server and installed and I have updated the DocumentRoot and Directory to a new folder and it works. But I have a few folders in the directory, each with 1 file. I am trying to make it so that I can access those files from the web browser and download them. Any help on how to do that?

Here is what I am trying to do.

I have a PSVita that is stuck in Demo Mode and there is a way to select firmware for download but it takes some work and a server that can store files for downloading.

Demo Mode models (I think) download demo mode firmware(it wont update to official firmware but does update). So I got a hold of the newest firmware on my PC and the XML file that directs the location for finding the firmware. All I need to do is store these file using Apache web server and then direct the PSVita to them during the update. But to do that I need to be able to view them from IE and download them.

Does this make sense?

Or if anyone knows of a way to store this in a cloud server that would work, let me know.
