Looking For ASP / Java Script / HTML File Upload Prog
Looking for a upload prog ( prefrably free ) thats easy to impliment, and will work on a W2k ASP Web server.
The idea is ( a bit like the nowhere news thing but thats PHP ) some on uploads the file using the HTTP protacol to get round file walls and then is only viable in a diffrent area with the OK from the admin person.
If user IDs and access were thrown in so much the better.
The reason behind this... I am rebuilding my server at home and it would be a usfull function to get files around the net easily for me.
Thanks in advance
Personally, I think your best bet is to enable FTP on the server via IIS. IIS's FTP service will allow you to control access via username and password, and anyone using Windows already has a FTP client: Internet Explorer. Hope this helps
**Cough Cough** IIS = Insecure
I made a file uploader in PHP, you use the http protacle to upload the file, I also have the option to delete the file with a script I used the FTP functions to delete the file. You can install PHP on a IIS system if ur interested in the script.
MMM I know IIS is insecure but I think FTP is worse. The main reason I wanted to use the http protacol is to get round my works proxy and firewalls.
Soooo how easy si it to install php, how much does it cost and where can I find a nice installtion of it... ? Prefrably with a snap-in.
The FTP server that comes with IIS is very insecure, get one with password protection like Serv-U
PHP is open source and free, you can obtain it from http://www.php.net
There is an installer for windows and it runs right out of the .Zip file so your ready to go, all you have to do is allow index.php in your IIS settings as a main page, otherwise you will have to click on the link from the file list
You want Windows PHP 4.3.4 installer it can be found here:
Here is a direct link to the file:
If you need help setting up the .php extension let me know
You can run the Apache webserver on windows and php on apache if you don't want to run IIS.
I personally wouldn't have a problem running stright IIS if I were you. It's less secure than the Linux/Apache solution, but that does not mean that it can't be made secure. As long as you keep up on your security updates and patches, you will be mostly secure. At least you will be secure enough to keep the casual hacker out. Anyone more dedicated than a regular script kiddie you're not going to keep out anyway so it doesn't pay to worry about.
For file uploading on ASP, you're going to need a third party dll such as http://www.aspupload.com/ . This is to allow file uploading and provides a few nifty features. There is no need for this 3rd party software if you use php. It's handled natively.
This would be a very easy application to program on your own. Just make one asp (or php) page to handle uploads, and one to handle downloads. Password protect those pages (very easy to do) and you're done.

Trying to rebuild my sever today possibly but my son managed to get hold of my copy of 2k Advanced and has - well lets say I not happy - scratched it.
Will let you know how I get on.
Did you own the copy or was it a "copy"? I hope it was a copy that would suck to have the real CD Scratched
Problems solved... make a copy of that CD and reburn it... works fine now... will let you kniow how I get on.
So it was a copy of a copy? or a copy of a copy of a copy???
