    Access files on server

    Hi,
    I need some advice regarding on how to make files from a certain files accesible within a server.
    The thing is that Im enrolled in a course and we want to share files between us, and to do so, we have a website, and we want to be able to access a link that points to a certain folder where we upload files and from there download those files.
    How can I do this?

    thank you

    You could share the FTP access data with your fellow students.

    For everyone? You could use the 1 login code for everyone for sure?

    and what if we login from diferent locations at the same time?
    and if we cant access from ftp?
    thats why we prefer to show files like a list.

    Depending on the server's set-up you should be able to log in from any location.
    Maybe move this topic to a tech related thread and ask the admin gurus if you'd prefer a more customized solution

    Another option is to have the HTTP server use the CURL module in PHP to grab the file using FTP behind the scenes and then forward.
