PHP FileStore - turn any PHP server into a file server
by Stefan Reich, Feb 12th 2013
I am sick & tired of losing files because of notebooks and hard drives failing or being stolen by capitalists. Or whatever catastrophes might steal your data.
Not everyone has a v-server or even a dedicated server. But many people have standard webhosting packages that include PHP. So why not turn a PHP server into an FTP-like file server? FileStore does just that.
This first release is meant to be accessed programatically over HTTP. The next version will probably feature a human-friendly web interface. Oh, and quotas.
Setting up PHP FileStore
...is extremely easy. Upload filestore1.php into an empty directory of your PHP server. Then open it in a browser and follow the easy on-screen instructions.
- Should work on any PHP server out there (call us if it doesn't!)
- Downloads can be password-protected
- Uploads can be separately password-protected
