File vault for web site
« on: August 28, 2007, 02:01:10 AM »
Is anyone aware of a java applet or some other means by which I can drag and drop files to store in my own web space? Here are my requirements:

1. No limit on the file size I want to upload
2. Should work from behind corporate proxy
3. (If possible) I should be able to upload an entire folder
4. Downloads should not be public and be accessible only via a secure password

Basically I am looking for what Box.net provides, but only it should work on my web hosting space.

Any ideas?

From the looks of it, I think mouser's tool Drag+Drop Robot along with a commandline ftp tool could do the job for you. I haven't tried it myself, though :-[

Do anyone else use Drag+Drop Robot for something like this?

Unfortunately, FTP doesn't work from my work place.

Is drag n drop really important ? If not, net2ftp is a web based ftp client that could do the job.

I already use Net2FTP. The problem w/ it is the limited size of files that can be uploaded.

It doesn't really fulfill your drag-n-drop requirement, but I've used phpXplorer (http://www.phpexplor....org/phpXplorer/www/) and found it to be pretty useful.

I'd be interested if anyone can find a free PHP, Perl, or Python based web app that does.  I don't think my provider supports Java on the server, but a client side Java applet to handle the drag-n-drop would be fine.

I came across JUpload (http://jupload.sourceforge.net) which looks interesting from the screen shot and the description, but I was unable to get the demo applet to work here.  It didn't start at all in Firefox (which may be a Firefox/Java configuration issue) and in IE6 the applet started, but file uploads failed (but that may be because the demo server may not really be capable of accepting files).

If you try it let us know how it works out for you.

I'll try phpXplorer later.

How do I set up jupload? What do I do w/ the .jar file?

Update: Somehow the applet seems to be working. A file got uploaded, but it's not anywhere to be seen on the server. Know where the files get uploaded to?

I haven't actually use the JUpload applet, so I'm ont sure how much help I'll be.  You need to have some server script (JSP or PHP for example) that puts the applet in the webbpage's HTML with the proper parameters, and the server script that gets the post with the files being uploaded needs to handle the upload process.

It looks like it'll need a fair amount of customization by someone who knows PHP (or some server-side scripting) much better than I do.  It looks like JUpload is not a turnkey solution - it needs to be integrated into the website by someone who knows at least a bit about PHP/JSP or such.

The .jar file you download is really just a .zip file that any Zip manager can open - you should open it and read the wwwroot/readme.txt file which has essential information.

There's an example PHP page on JUpload's wiki:  http://jupload.wiki....orge.net/PHP+Example

And an additional PHP script here:  http://sourceforge.n...&forum_id=199107

Maybe this will be of user (free version available):
