I have a client that would like for their website to allow customers to upload zipped files (up to 2GB) from a web page. The files would be sent to their FTP folder.
Now, I didn't want to reinvent the wheel and I know there is probably something out there but I cannot find one that meets all of these criteria:
Needs to provide real-time progress feedback that visually shows a progress bar of some sort so that the user knows that the upload is still in progress
Needs to send files to THEIR website and not YouSendIt or Dropbox
Needs the ability to exclude certain file types (like exe, png, psd, etc.)
And it is not a must, but it would be nice to include a password form field so that not just anyone could attempt to upload files through the web page.
Can someone tell me if this program exists?
Here is a short list of others that I have found so far. Keep in mind that these do not show a progress bar and/or send the files to a third party like Dropbox or YouSendIt.
Maybe I'm wrong, but isn't this just basic PHP stuff? What kind off software are you referring too? Just do a normal upload! If you want it protected (only members can upload), you need to make a members section with login functionality!
It may be, and I am not well versed in PHP to create that from scratch. Thus the idea of using a script that already exists. I just was under the assumption that a something already exists and I would simply use that instead of starting from square one.
I would take a look at hotscripts.com and see whats there.
A couple of things to think about concerning the "up to 2GB":
1/ How long will a 2GB file take to upload - you may need to change the time limit in your php.ini file or else it might time out.
2/ Will the hosts alow a 2GB file upload ?
