I am looking for a very simple file sharing server application. I am having a hard time finding one (or even getting useful search results) because of all the Dropbox clones out there.
All I am looking for:
- Local file hosting. The files should be stored locally, not on an external web service.
- Download links. If I want to share a file with someone, the easiest way to do it would be to provide a download link.
- Password-protected links. A lot of Dropbox-like services provide this by allowing "guest accounts". This means that if I want to share a private file with someone they need to first create an account on my server, which has permission to download that file. That seems unnecessarily complex. All I want is a page that asks for a password before starting the download, so I can send a URL and password to someone.
TL;DR: I want to be able to send someone a password-protected download URL. In addition I want control of my files, I don't want to host them on someone else's server.
