I want to host a small file sharing site for my friends to quickly share pictures/files/documents etc.

The simply way I can imagine this, is when visiting the website on my server, you get asked for a password (No user password, just a password in general). After that it should just be a simple drag and drop to upload something and get a sharable link for that file. Also there should be a setting in the software that auto deletes files after X days.

The simpler, the better.

Is there a simple software for linux that could do exactly that?

Check out OwnCloud (https://owncloud.com/download-server/)

Just use the non-enterprise version and it's Free.

It won't auto-delete files, but it will automatically remove access to those files after X number of days.
