creating a community folder
Hello I am trying to set up a dir which is publicly accessible via an http method that enables visitors to view/download/upload media. I need to be able to set certain rules such as no duplicate filenames, may copy but not move, etc. - and hopefully restrict certain filenames.
I instinctively invision sort of an IRC - esque interface but if I could include my site colors and logos that would be choice.
My gut says learn php - but that's a tall order (learning a whole new language).
I just want some direction, such as a tutorial that addresses this need or perhaps some snippets to get me on the right track... IS this possible in strictly html? Please excuse me if this question is rather elementary - but I am a beginner to webDev.

Welcome to the forums ,
Looks like your buddy is correct, this is way beyond the realms of HTML and would probably be best dealt with using PHP. I will move this to the scripts forum and hopefully somebody with a little more smarts can help you.

There are quite a few PHP scripts in the Upload systems category http://www.hotscripts.com/PHP/Scripts_and_Programs/File_Manipulation/Upload_Systems/index.html You might want to check some of them out. Most of the scripts at HotScripts come with good installation directions. You might also check out the http://www.hotscripts.com/PHP/Scripts_and_Programs/File_Manipulation/File_Management/index.html http://www.hotscripts.com/Detailed/15762.html looks promising. It's also free and has a good rating.
