Suggestions for web applications for file serving

Suggestions for web applications for file serving

From:

Dear Offline People,

I'm looking for suggestions for web applications (i.e. anything that can
run on a pretty Linux web server), for serving files, and allowing users to
upload files.

Must-have requirements:

- Allow browsing of directory hierarchy, as per normal file system
- Allow download of any file
- Allow upload of files to current directory
- Minimal install fiddling - should work reasonably easily 'out of the box'.

Nice to have:

- Configurable per-user permissions (i.e. read-only users, users who can
only browse specific directories)
- Super simple clean UI
- Content type aware preview

Candidates at the moment are things like OwnCloud, or any of the things
like these:

http://www.nilambar.net/2012/10/best-free-web-based-file-management-scripts-in-php.html

But it's hard to choose between those without having played with them all.

Thanks for any suggestions!

James

Hi James,
do you have any restrictions regarding the hardware where the web server runs on?
Is it a normal computer? Is it something like a RaspberryPI or less 
powerfull and it is more like a rouer?

regards
Matthias

Matthias,

For this application assume older PC hardware, e.g. an old P4, ~1Gb RAM,
etc.

Hi James,

I would give that software a try https://code.google.com/p/clients-oriented-ftp/
that looks promising. 

(I only quickly looked at the lists - and I'm not very sure what you want 
to achieve ;) )

You might also want to look at WebDAV (very easy to setup with Apache) --
it integrates with the Finder, Windows & Linux relatively well, and files
are accessible on the Web.

CAN the dead drops be used between HKW and the unMonastery apartment to
