How do I create a website where visitors upload files?

  • Answered
I am designing a website where I would like to allow customers to upload files using a file uploader. I want to then receive notification that a file has been uploaded and have access to that file. I do not want other customers to have access to the uploaded files. How do I do that?

I am using Dreamweaver to build the site.

Hi Schaarsschmidt, Thanks for posting your question. I'm more than happy to assist you. This task while not impossible in Dreamweaver would require extensive coding knowledge. There's a few scripts out there that would allow you to handle the upload and progress such as this one below: AJAX script to handle file uploads with progress bar Then, you'd have to rename the file and use another script to send a URL to that person with the renamed file URL. That way, no one could guess the file name since it's been randomly renamed. Alternatively, but just as hard, you could try to find a content management system that would allow users to create accounts and upload files that would then attach to the account. That way, only the person who the file belongs to would be able to access the files that were uploaded. I hope this helps! If you need further assistance please feel free to contact us. Thanks! Tim S
