Want to allow for uploading from the web side

 8:36 pm on Jan 5, 2007 (gmt 0)

Hello all I have a small family site that I run for my family to allow picture sharing and communicate via a forum style front as well as have a voip server running on it. I want to make an upload page for my other family members that are not technical enough to ftp (I know I know sad). But in any case I would like to have a web frontend that they can upload files and all I will have to is set the files in the correct place for them. Is there an easy way to do this, I would like for them to be able to set them but I don't think this is going to be an easy option of how to teach them to do so, or if that is even possible via a web front end. The page will be secure so that no one will be able to access that page with a user and pass.

well I guess I asked to quickly as I seem to do I have found a perl script that will allow for this. Sorry for the post, but if there are any other suggestions that would be great as well. Also I will give my set up a bit. I have a FreeBSD server running apache if anyone has an answer and need to know what I am running.

Welcome to WebmasterWorld, sedoshi!

You have a couple options here. You can use Perl as you already found out. My personal favorite is PHP. It really depends on what you are more knowledgeable in, what your server has as far as programming languages, and what will suit your needs best.

If you are happy with what you found then I guess all I can say is best of luck! :)

I would go with PHP, it's easier to learn. If you want to know more about the programming languages though, go for Perl. :)

OR, try Ruby on Rails. :D

Ruby on Rails = Much easier to learn.
