#Simple Python File Server With Browse, Upload, and Authentication This is a simple file server that

  • supports file directory browse of the server
  • supports file upload to the server
  • supports authentication

It is tested with Ubuntu 14.04, python 2.7.6

Find the latest version at https://github.com/wonjohnchoi/Simple-Python-File-Server-With-Browse-Upload-and-Authentication

###How To Install sudo chmod 700 install

sudo chmod 700 uninstall

sudo ./install

Once the installation is complete, this file server is registered as an upstart service.

Check the file server at localhost:PORT

###How To Uninstall sudo ./uninstall

#!/bin/bash
./uninstall
read -p "Enter which port to use (ex. 5000): " PORT
read -p "Enter which id to use (ex. admin): " ID
read -p "Enter which password to use (ex. mypassword): " PASSWORD
cat >/etc/init/simple-file-server.conf <<EOL
start on runlevel [2345]
stop on runlevel [!2345]
exec /etc/simple-file-server/SimpleHTTPServerWithUploadAndAuthentication.py $PORT $ID:$PASSWORD
EOL
chmod 700 /etc/init/simple-file-server.conf
mkdir /etc/simple-file-server
cp SimpleHTTPServerWithUploadAndAuthentication.py /etc/simple-file-server/
chmod 700 /etc/simple-file-server/SimpleHTTPServerWithUploadAndAuthentication.py
