Hi All Website Guru's
Our business of 50 employees, like any business, has through the years generated many many 1000's of documents and files: Word docs, Excel Files, PDF'S, Photos, Photoshop Files, AutoCAD Drawings, and the list goes on.
These documents are all stored on a single Windows 2008 File Server at head office location.. the file server is accessed locally via LAN and Network Shares .. and... remotely accessed via VPN and\or RDP.
The company currently has one web Application (Website) www.trinav.com
which is hosted on a non-dedicated "Virtual" server at GoDaddy. This application is where we enter records for Commercial Fishing Boat sand Fishing Licenses that we broker on behalf of our customers. Very Similar to a Real Estate website. The website back-end is MYQSL.
One drawback to being on the web application is that related documents are separate from the application IE> Sales Agreements, Signed Contracts, etc, etc.
Is there a way to integrate or link our in-house documents to our web application that is someplace else? Such that can create and edits docuemnts (a check-check out) system that is safe and secure.
Perhaps there is a document management system application we could purchase that would integrate with our website
Is this possible? and if so, is it practical and safe .. security wise? This is after-all a public website.
