Need a site to upload documents for download from http://

Is there a way to have an open web page to the general public in SharePoint?  I need a page where folks can download files for our company.  Nothing sensitive.  If not, is there any other free solution out there where I can do this?

If you're talking about people downloading docs from your site, just setup a folder where then can access files for download.

Place the file in the folder.

Then visitors download the files.

Set up the Files where? Share point? The problem with SharePoint is that they need to have a login
David FavorLinux/LXD/WordPress/Hosting SavantCommented:
What you'll do is arrange for some linkage between your SharePoint files + your Webserver root directory.

For example, creating a symlink from somewhere in your Webserver install hierarchy to the actual file system where SharePoint keeps it's files.

How exactly you'll do this will vary greatly depending on your Webserver setup, SharePoint setup, if both are on the same machine or separate machines.

I only have the sharepoint and no web server. That's the scenario.

You can configure SharePoint for anonymous access. If you have the network setup you can also place SharePoint directly on the internet. Unless you set any web facing server up correctly it is a huge risk, but it can be done.

Would an alternative such as One Drive or SharePoint online work for you. May be something to consider.

Good luck...
