    Server Uploads

    Hello,

    I have a small server setup and I would like to be able to upload files from my Ubuntu 8.10 laptop to it via the internet using a username and password. Basically my own private online backup service. Are there any programs available that will let me do this?

    Thoughts and Ideas please....
    Cheers!

    yeah http://www.rejetto.com/hfs/ you have to use wine.. but it will work like a champ.

    hfs + wine + dyndns + forwarded port = your home server on the internet

    or even a basic FTP server could work too as thats client platform independant and does not need wine installed. Personally i use ProFTPD.

    Of course! Apache can be installed with "apt-get install apache2" I belive.

    Re: Server Uploads

    what do you mean by users? Apache is nothing but a webserver which just displays pages or files in its htdocs! It is a read-only thing in the sameway that a website is. Are yuo thinking of mabye Apache wit hmabye PHP and some file manegment software? In which case the sfotware might come with multiple users.

    Re: Server Uploads

    I'm trying to make a basic home server that will give multiple users disk space. So if I logon with my username/password I get the files I uploaded but if someone else logs on they get the files they uploaded but not mine. I want to use Ubuntu 8.10 as the client system and preferably as the host.
