I'm looking for a JS uploader (free or commercial) that lets me select the folder (on the server) where to upload the file.

I will be uploading single files most of the time.

I tried FineUploader and DropZone, plus various GitHub projects, but none of then offer this ability.

  • You're aware that Javascript runs client-side and thus cannot let you browse folders on the server – unless it knows all available directories beforehand (i.e. at the time the script is downloaded by the clients browser)? – Izzy May 5 '16 at 11:15
  • @Izzy they have back-end part.. There are tons of scripts – Marco Marsala May 5 '16 at 18:52

    That's what I meant: it cannot be done by a client-side Javascript alone. Would the server part use Javascript as well, or would other solutions be acceptable too? What requirements must be met on the server? (PS: Your answer shows I was correct: the product you chose requires PHP on the server) – Izzy May 5 '16 at 19:03

I meet elFinder, a free JS file manager with folder support. It allow drag'n'drop upload, browsing folders, CRUD operations on files and folders.

On server side, it requires PHP 5.2+ (recommended is PHP 5.4 or higher). Easy installation with composer.
