PHP Upload Tool provides a simple file management web interface. The motivation was to create a drop-box for users to be able to upload files similar to FTP, but easier for users to use and a non-technical admin to manage.

Download the current version here from the SourceForge site.
Note that the upload tool is not secure until you initialize it.
Simply untar/gunzip the current release file:
tar zxf upload.tar.gz
Copy the "upload" directory tree to a location under your Apache server document root. Then point your browser to that path.
cp -R ../upload /var/apache2/htdocs/. sudo chown -R www:www /var/apache2/htdocs/upload lynx http://www.example.com/upload
When you first navigate to the upload tool it will bring you to a form page that will define a new root user password. This form will also create the initial config.conf and users.conf files. The form will choose a default home directory. All users directories will be created under this path. File management such as upload and delete will only be allowed under this home directory. In general, you can let the Initialize form choose this path automatically.
To enable large uploads you may need to reconfigure PHP. You can modify the php.ini or the Apache httpd.conf file. Add this to httpd.conf:
<Directory /> php_value max_execution_time 300 php_value upload_max_filesize 40M php_value post_max_size 40M </Directory> LimitRequestBody 40000000
None at this time. It's pretty simple.
