How to build as web base File Server

Hi folks,

Ubuntu 7.04 server amd64
mysql Ver 14.12
SquirrelMail version 1.4.11

I have a running Mail Server. I need to make it as a file server, in addition, allowing users who have accounts (Linux/shell) on the Mail Server to upload/download their files via browser on the Mail Server for storage.

Webmin and Usermin are also running on the Mail Server. Users can send/receive webmails direct on any PC. They can change their passwords either direct on SquirrelMail or via Usermin.

At the beginning I was thinking whether I can make use Usermin allowing users to upload/download files to/from the Mail Server. Therefore they can access them on any PC world-wide, borderless. While googling around on Internet I found;

HFS ~ Http File Server
HFS ~ HTTP File Server - portal

I expect folks on the forum who have experience on this project shed me some light. OR are there better solutions?

Well, you have a problem with the tools you propose to use. rejetto uses HFS for the storage and HFS is a windows application, so you would have to also run wine to use it. The normal way to deal with file uploads/downloads is to use http "post" or "file upload" for upload and normal http for downloads, and it is not very complicated to do this.

I found one example implementation here: RFC1867 HTTP File Upload with a quick google search.
