Content submission through website

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
In my website I was wondering if there was a way I could setup a user account and allow clients to fill out a form and attach files and those files would be delivered to my Filezilla server. I did think about using my dyn and building a webserver for the subdomain. but still wondering how to allow user access and based on that access a way the files will be dropped into their folders. I am planning on running a Ubuntu rip station that will take a shared folder off Filezilla and pull the clients folders and run them through a rip process. Looking for better ideas since I am not a networking guy.

Of course it's possible. Do you have experience with server scripting (PHP, Perl, etc) and databases? To setup accounts you'll need to save user/passwords (encrypted) into the DB, using this you can tell the access level of the user and the identity.

Make up a system that links files to their owners. For example, setup unique IDs that you can relate to a file and relate to its owner. This can be a combination of owner ID, with date, with an increasing index or whatever works for you. You can make it as simple or as complex as you want.

I would recommend to save files in the server and save their name, ID and location other metadata in the DB. You can then serve up the files using a server side scripting language.

I have experience with basic PHP and can read and understand it. I can code up some WordPress themes but as far as really understanding how a database is built its an area I need to improve on.
