Hello All,

    I'm looking for a program that I could use as an FTP frontend.  What i mean is that when a person goes to ftp.company.com they would get a nice frontend screen where they would logon and then taken to where they could download or upload files.  Something like www.onlinefilefolder.com.  This would allow clients or customers to have logon much easier and access files that are needed.  I've used programs like this to create photo albums like Coppermine Photo Gallery.  Looking for something like this for files.  Thanks.

Thanks but not looking for a client.  Looking for something I can install on our server so users just hit our site and logon.

I want to be able to host on my site.  My users are not good at using FTP so want to create something where they can logon fairly easily and be able to upload and download files without a FTP client.  Even if it's a PHP program that uses mySQL.  Want to make as easy as possible.

I have used this appliance with one of my clients' who have users who needed a very easy use methodology. They and their external clients have been using it for past 6 months with no issues. I have not had to touch the app at all since last I configured it. If you are going to use it purely as an FTP server it works great, also can do FTP as well as HTTP through web browser gui

Hi,

You might want to checkout the following server side scripts;
1) XtraUpload v2 http://xtrafile.com/products/xtraupload-v2/
2) FileThingie http://www.solitude.dk/filethingie/
3) Simple Directory Listing http://simpledirectorylisting.net/
4) AjaXplorer http://www.ajaxplorer.info/

Hopefully one of these will work.
