I'm setting up a (temporary) website for hosting videos and photos my friends and I took at an academic conference. I'm going to have them FTP in (since PHP Max_Filesize is 2MB and we have some multi-gigabyte videos). Once the files are there, I want something that's a little nicer than a web-browser listing of directory contents. I know I could hand-code an HTML page, but that's annoying ;)

The server I'm using supports PHP and MySQL, so I'd prefer solutions using that (freeware, of course). My friends are not computer-savvy at all, which is the crux of my problem. I'm anticipating them having trouble with an FTP client for heaven's sake.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

I googled it quickly, and I found:
http://www.solitude.dk/filethingie/
http://phpfm.sourceforge.net/
http://www.gerd-tentler.de/tools/filemanager/index.php
Not sure if any of them will work for you. If they don't, I suppose I (or you) could give writing one a shot.

Thank you, I will look into those tomorrow. Also, I'm not a coder (not seriously anyway). The most I'll do is edit a config file for some PHP/MySQL script; that's it. If there's coding to do, Dreamweaver takes care of it :)

Haha OK then. Check those out and see if they are what you want. If not, I have a medium level of PHP/MySQL experience and could probably code you a rudimentary file manager/ image viewer.

Why don't you change the size limits in your php.ini file? (I think you might need to check the apache.conf too...)

Unless you don't admin the box, but even most providers let you have a local php configuration file that allows for stuff like that.

Good idea! I didn't even think of that.

I tried that, but I need file limits in excess of 1GB. What does the code for that look like? I thought I did it right but obviously not. Please post a "n00b" proof guide to this PHP.ini fix you have suggested.

Did you try:

Code:
upload_max_filesize 1024M
