How can I allow visitors to upload via FTP?

By stepsimon ·
We're a small company using a web hosting service. We would like to be able to point our customers to a form that would allow them to upload multiple files to our ftp.
I have some html coding experience, but it's pretty basic. I've seen packages like 'Thin File Ftp' that do the majority of the coding for you.

Does anyone have any suggestions or could you point to some resources (tutorials?) that would get me on the right track?

I would suggest a FTP DropBox service such as Egnyte

In general, with a ton of coding, a ton of testing you can create a mostly functional, partly secure FTP drop-box solution, that's mostly reliable,

Or use a service like Egnyte or Tango DropBox that's $4 per month and you're done.

Thanks, robo_dev. We already use a service like this, I just hadn't thought of using it in this context.

Works great!

Maybe another solution

If you have an old PC you're not using, I once took an old Dell 4100, installed Windows 2000 Pro, used the FTP service and a white paper from the Microsoft web site and set up a FTP server for a company I worked for a few years ago. Worked fine. No added expense and complete control over the server. Didn't need much processing power, etc., just disk space.
