Project Description

Script required to power private file sharing sites.

A similar site to review and understand project: [url removed, login to view]

Would be great to build over an existing framework or cms (as plugins).


* Web based file upload and management

- multiple simultaneous uploads, drag and drop to upload support, folder upload support (in chrome and other browsers with full html5 compatibility)

- folder management

- select by checkbox, delete/move files/folders

- current file transfers

- download stats (total counts, bandwidth, for selected period, daily graph)

* Encryption

- file encryption on upload (files are stored only encrypted on server)

- prevent 3rd party decryption (even by site owners)

- encryption public key generated based on 2 keys - a file key generated for each file or folder on server (depending on settings) and a user key (known only by users); by default root folders have same key and each folder can be configured to have same key or different keys per file

* Share

- 2 methods : secret link with public key as parameter, link without key (shows a form to input public key)

- by file download link

- by folder shows list of files in folder with download links (for folders configured to have same key)

- report (shows form where complainer can submit copyright info for that download, requires email confirmation and automatically notifies owner by email on completion)

* Membership

- member registration with email confirmation, captcha

- edit account details

- view, upgrade membership subscription

* Server file management

- files are uploaded to other severs where some scripts for upload, access and stats are also installed (can also be on same server)

- folder and file names are stored as hashes (not with original names) on servers

- when a new folder is created it is stored on server with most space available

* Backend

- custom membership types (name, description, max number of files, folders, disk space, monthly upload/download bandwidth, subscription price & period)

- billing by paypal + 1 alternate processor (suggest)

- automated ipn processing for billing, refunds, cancellations; complete info

- manage members; suspend user, view last 100 account access IPs with checkboxes and select all to ban

- report management (admins and see reports for submitted links, email user, block public/all access to file/folder and delete, suspend user)

- configure storage server (ftp details, web path to access script to access); see stats for each (available/used space)

* Multilanguage support
