SlashOrg Downloader is a totally free of charge file management solution written in the PHP script language. I wrote it initially to stop people snooping through the files on my Web server whilst allowing me to offer controlled downloads to friends. It uses special "access links" generated by the administrator that allow access to a shared folder until they expire or have exceeded the maximum usage limit authorized by the administrator.

The latest version of SlashOrg Downloader has many more features, as you can see in the feature list below. Check it out!

Don't forget to check out the release notes !

SlashOrg Downloader should run on most Unix or Windows servers (the PHP iconv extension is required for unicode support).

  • A PHP 4 or 5 compatible Web server
  • A MySQL 4.x or 5.x database
  • The following operating systems are compatible with SOrg Downloader: Windows 2000, Linux 2.4/2.6, FreeBSD 5.x/6.x, Mac OS X 10.4

Note: some hosting companies limit the maximum size of POST uploaded files ('post_max_size' and 'upload_max_filesize' PHP configuration parameters) to a rather low value, as well as deactivating various file handling functions (like unlink or rmdir). I suggest you avoid such companies wink.gif ).

SlashOrg Downloader supports servers running with Magic Quotes or Safemode activated.

So that you can check out the software before you install it on you own Web site, I've installed a demo version. Click on the image below and log on as demo/demo. You might also want to switch the language over to English by clicking on the "Préférences" link at the top (you choose the default language via the setup wizard).


Important: Please don't attempt to use this demo to upload large files. Thank you! happy.gif
