Uploading files to Server

  Pesala 20:51 02 Oct 2006

I created this directory on my Domain: click here

My idea is to let people upload files there for file sharing or posting images on some Forums that I visit. I enabled write permission on the directory. How would someone go about uploading a file to this directory?

It is only intended as a temporary storage area to save using services like ImageShack, which are no always very satisfactory.

Is this idea workable?

Yes, it is, but you ideally need to be familiar with PHP.

I thought it would be easy.

Depends what it you call easy, really. I know a lot of PHP guides like to say "this is really easy" and it is in fact not THAT easy, but this is fairly striahgtforward. The security concerns are quite easily dealt with by putting the upload system in a secure part of your server.
