Web Dropbox

< Back

Tools used: PHP, MySQL, jQuery, HTML, CSS

Objective: Client wanted an easy way to upload and host PDF files that were downloadable by others within the organization.

Solution: Click Here To View The Dropbox

Rather than spend time looking for a perfect plugin for this I decided it would be better/more fun to just create the functionality myself. I created a form to upload PDF files, (and clean up any strange characters) upload the file onto the server and insert the file path into the database.

Once uploaded, a user can view and download a list of all the files uploded. I also integrated a forward facing file management system where a user can delete files that have already been uploaded.

This was the first PHP/MySQL project I worked on 100% by myself and it really inspired me to continue learning more about these languages, they are now some of my favorite to work with.
