Allowing FTP access to my web site
Posted on 1998-11-18
This is so basic, I feel a bit foolish asking.
I want people to be able to FTP files to and from a directory in my web site. Actually, I want them to be able to FTP "upload" to an UPLOAD directory, without seeing what other files are in that directory, and to be unable to download any files in that directory.
At the same time, I want to set up a separate UPLOAD directory so that people can pick up the file I have left for them. Again, I don't want them to see any of the other
files in that directory.
I suppose when the person arrives on my UPLOAD/DOWNLOAD page they should first see a page which welcomes them and tells them what to do, to enter the name of the file they are uploading/downloading and then push the button and the file transfer takes place.
So how can I do this? Maybe it's some HTML coding and directory setup. Or maybe there's some kind of shareware/shell program out there.
