Hey hey, i have a personal server from my ISP. It allows me to hold 10mb of personal stuff. I want to use it for uni and stuff because i need an FTP to connnect to it, Also i want my friends to be able to upload pics and stuff as well. So i was thinking of having an upload page. However i dont have the coding abilities to do that, so i thought i would come here =D. Anyone knows how to write an upload page??

Thanks for anyhelp!!

Most ISPs wont allow such things on free pages. If you have an open upload directory, then someone with bad intentions can access it, upload something that shouldnt be there, then comprimise the server using the bad file. Especially if its a windoze server.

Hey thanks for the reply. Ummm is there anyway i can find out for sure i cant do it?? Like is there a test or certain property? Also the server is running on a UNIX system. I understand where you are coming from, however i and a few friends will be the only one using it, also couldnt i password protect that page?
Thanks.

You asked for ASP people, ASP runs on windows systems. PHP runs on unix boxes.

You could do a .htaccess file and password protect the folder. I guess before we can help youll have to specify which scripting language you need.
