I can’t try demo, some user login/password? admin pasword not work.
click first on “access admin panel” button, at the top-right, and then enter password shareboxdemo
So you keep adding dropbox in the description, but what is it really? Is this something I host on my own server and use my own ftp space? This is similar to own cloud? Do you have an IOS or Android client for this? Or are do you have plans for making one? I really like what you’ve done here, and I really like the interface better than own cloud, but looking for more options.
you can host it on your own server and use your own ftp space, but has a nice web interface, everything you do is fast and easy via the web interface…you can share files across users, you can upload files to users, and they see their files with a password….if you need to share files to your friends or co-workers elegantly and organized you can….and also the people that log in to the front-side and get their files can upload you back files (to your own dropBox, included in this app)...you can see your dropBox uploaded files by these users in a special section in your admin module, where you can download and delete them….so far no plans on making an iOS or Android native app, maybe in the future. It’s built for large files that you work with (.mp3s, .wavs, graphic files, movies, you name it) that you need to share quickly and organized, with a password, with your work mates or friends….for more details you can contact us on our email, firstname.lastname@example.org. cheers!
please protect your dropbox folder from unauthorized viewing as i can view your saved files via browser.
either disable Directory Browsing or use blank .html for all your folders.
thanks for noticing man, uploading the updated archive in 1 min
Hi, looks great, well done…....is there any chance of making it responsive layout? (not the admin side)
front page ? we’ll try in a few days…will keep you posted
we manage to update our app with full-responsive frontpage…check it out cheers
another piece from me…......how about creating Groups? Create a group then when you create a user, put that user into that group, lets say: Group1, then instead of putting a tick in the box for each individual user, put a tick into the Group selected and it goes to every user in that group?
and also….you could have the option for no Group.
Just a thought, keep up the good work
we wanted to keep it simple at first…we’ll try your suggestions soon, we’re already planning on expanding the website based on people suggestions…cheers!
I have few question before I buy your software, is the demo being suppress deliberately? cause I uploaded files to it but it does not show on the user level it was a gif file… one more important thing … how do you share the file with lets say a client or a colleague? I don’t see that option,,, I think it is a good software but it just stops short of doing a great job by not able to share your file, every one has free drop-box they don’t need to use this, please let me know….
no…the way it works is you create a user, upload files to him, change / edit his password, and then that person connects to the frontpage with his username / pass, and get his files. He can alwaays upload files to your dropbox, which every user you create can do.
The uploading should work, you have to click first on “check file name before upload”, that cleans filename of unwanted chars.
The app works very well, been tested and tested and is our own way of sharing files. You can always buy it, we’re always updating it when we upgrade it with new features and even bugs we or other people find.
don’t worry about the app not working…it works well, we tested it gazillion times, with all features….uploading can be done from loggin in as user and upload to the dropBox (which, after you get the app, will be your personal dropBox where all users upload files), or you can upload from the admin to a certain user. All the files have icons and types, detected from the .extension, major types are provided.
so yes, don’t worry, we’re supporting this app so you can always drop in a question on our email, and you’ll be answered.
to the question “how do you share a file with a colleague or friend” you say there’s no option for it, but actually this is the main purpose of our web-app. You create a user with your friend’s name, then you upload a file to that user, define a password for him, and then let him know the address of your Sharebox (e.g. http://www.mysite.com/Sharebox) and give him the password you set for him, so he gets from now on files from you from there.
if press Download in any file i see the preview not link download
i se the only probleme realy it is verry good woork
hey bro If the file is recognised in the browser (such as mp3, mov, avi, etc) it will play. Just right-click on download, and select “save as..”, this way it will save the file onto your harddrive. cheers!
ok if i upload file i can see link of download ? or if i press the link i can download automaticly?
whenever you upload a file to a user, the USER will see that file when he logs in…..it’s not that you upload a file for yourself
Super tare! Felicitari!
Chiar ma gandesc sa-l cumpar dar problema mea e cu instalarea pe un host…nu ma pricep.
pai daca ai un hosting, unde-ti ti site-ul tau, faci un folder, copiezi toate fisierele din .ZIP acolo, si executi install.php. Asta e tot…e foarte usor de instalat
suna bine. merci
o sa mai scot un web-app, facut custom pentru mine, un organizer, check back prin iulie-august. cheers!
super! chiar o sa fie o aplicatie completa. toate cele bune!
salut, noutati despre proiect? web-app-ul customizat e gata?
merge de anul trecut, si are deja 3 update-uri. let me know daca vrei sa te ajut sa ti-l instalezi. cheers!
are si frontpage-ul responsive deja
super tare! nu mai stiu are si apicatie desktop pt upload (cum e la dropbox)?
e totul web-based…merge foarte easy, daca ai propriul VPS si nu shared hosting (care e mai ieftin) iti poti configura limita de upload peste 100Mb / file, toti userii pe care-i creezi iti pot uploada in dropbox-ul tau cate fisiere tine hardul, si tu la fel, le pui lor fisiere ce ai nevoie sa le trimiti, si poti sa dai share unui fisier dat unui user sa-l vada si alt user, fara sa-l mai upload twice.
chiar o sa ma gandesc serios. o sa vad intai partea de vps. merci si multa bafta!
k. np. interfata e eye-candy, 7 themes just a bonus
I seem to be having a problem . I can see the share box front end , but when I go to the admin panel and put in the password I receive a blank screen and the addy says admin.php. I seem to be missing something here. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thank you
let’s get it fixed, i’m not sure what it is wrong yet. write me back on email@example.com, and we’ll talk there, until we get it fixed
from what I assume, it’s a problem with database user/pass, you entered them not correctly when installing, or you misconfigured them in the cPanel. It’s an easy fix. Email me whenever you get a chance at the above email, in the previous response, and we’ll go from there, ok ? cheers, xplovibe09
Thank you for your help here I will re-install just to be sure. go from there. Thank you
great man. Just let me know if all goes well
Up and running thank you for all your support this is 5 stars for sure. ^5
good to hear everything is ok man. Cheers!
Been using the script for only a short while now, but love it! Just downloaded the update you posted. Are there any docs on which files I need to upload? Just curious as I don’t want to lose anything I’ve already posted. Thanks for any help you can provide.
ah don’t worry man, I didn’t modify anything to the project. Just updated the keyword tags for search, so people can find the app better while searching for it on the market place…cheers. let me know if anything
Thanks for the quick reply!
I want to know how much control the admin has over the dropbox site with regards to files posted by users/himself, if its possible to restrict access to the portal by manually creating accounts and emailing the login to desired users, if it is possible to easily move the whole thing around because at some point, one may need to get a VPS or something like that.
Also, is it possible to customize the appearance for example, change logos, change the icons, disable some menu items for admin from showing, such as documentation?
The whole thing has to be installed in a folder, so you can safely move the folder then and the database tables to your VPS. Not much trouble there.
Dropbox is only for admin, meaning you (admin) get files from the other users. At the same time you can safely create unlimited users (your working coleagues, friends) and upload files for them which they will get using their username and pass you set for them. So the portal can be accessed as admin only by you (admin), and also by each user, individually. Noone can access any files without a username and password.
You are to email a user / pass to a person, then they can access their account containing files you shared to them every time.
Files can be deleted by admin (including dropbox ones, sent by users to you – admin -, or admin can delete files he uploads to users.
So basically you get to upload files to your coleagues, then let them know to connect to the frontsite with their pass and user, and they safely get them. If one of them wants to send you back a file, he also has the dropbox feature which he’ll use to send you a file, that you can see in Dropbox section in admin.
If I haven’t been clear on anything above, or you have any more questions please write them here, I’ll be happy to clarify them to you.
All the graphic of the website is in folder “gfx”.
Inside it, in “file_type_icons” you can replace the logos that are near each file, with your files, if you want.
In folder “icons” are the menu icons, which you can replace with whatever you want, for yourself. If you want to re-sell the product with different icons and code, you might wanna check the multiple licenses when buying.
Also you can disable the menus, such as “documentation”, pretty easy.
You open the file menu.php from the “admin/” folder, and delete the code from line 155 to 167. That should do it.
If you can’t do that or can’t seem to get it right, let me know, i’ll email you the updated “menu.php” file without the documentation thing.
Remember, that noone can access Documentation area if it’s not admin, meaning you. Users you upload files for, access the frontside of the site that has an entirely different menu, with only their files and the dropbox feature, they can’t see anything from the “admin” section.
So here’s explained how to change your menu, menu icons.
Let me know if is there anything else I can assist you with.
also please be advised, I just talked to my hosting providers,
and they told me they put another limit on my account,
for file In/Out KB / second,
so if you try to upload on my demo-version website big files, it won’t.
They limited me. But on your website, I’m sure you don’t have this limitation of In/Out KB/sec.
if you get a VPS, you will have everything working by default.
Okay. Your quick response is an excellent sign I can get help if I need it down the road. Thanks!
But I want to ask, its not only admin who can upload/share files, right? And there is a way for admin to assign privileges or place restrictions on users, yes?
admin uploads files for users created (which are admin’s friends) and in turn, his friends, can upload files to the dropbox.
The web-app was done for people looking a way to share files together, but I was not thinking about placing limits / limitations such as maximum files a user can upload during a day, or maximum MB upload per user in general etc.
These things can be easily done, and probably I will do them in the next version, but so far, I didn’t think it’s really necessary.
The only way we can place restriction on users would be setting a certain amount of Mb uploaded for each user when they use the “dropbox” feature, to send you (admin) files. But since I thought limiting the “dropbox” is unwise, because it’s a powerful feature, there’s no limitations what-so-ever.
Remember, all the users you’re gonna have are aquaintances, friends of coleagues. I’m pretty sure you’ll want to receive all the files they’re gonna send via “dropbox”, not limit them
thx for purchasing, I’ll be here if you run into any problems
First, I use this great utility ALL the time! Love it! That said, um, what’s in this latest update? I don’t want to lose my database info. Should I update?
hey mate. I’m so happy you find this web-app useful in your daily tasks. This last update is nothing to worry you, we just updated the search tags to make it more visible on the market, so nothing on the code side. So you don’t need to re-download the app or anything. Have a beautiful day (or night)
Cool! Thanks for the continued support and quick answers.
hey, just to let you know I’ve decided to improve this web-app, with a lot of new features and turning it responsive too (good for phone / tablets). just to let you know…i’m not sure when the update is gonna be ready due to other ongoing projects, but we’re working on it…
i was try install it and it’s work. but when i try login as a user the url after login or logout is http://mydomain.com/install.php/main/
Please help me to fix it sir.
the path should not contain install.php there as it is. you must have entered wrong path to the installation in the installing process
Sory… i was fix it. Only edit misc_var.php on auth folder
yes…you probably entered some wrong path while installing. Let me know if anything else cheers
hello sir, my user can’t see the list shared after upload
and i can’t see the list shared too.
please help me, or please reinstall for me sir.
hey…just got your message. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and write me a detailed email about what’s going on, and we’ll take it from there. Ok ? cheers
hey man. Everything is working now on your domain. Let me know if all is good with you, on my email or here, and also if you need the whole web-app in a folder or just leave it like it is. cheers!
thx for fast respond and great support sir.
you are a great author
is there a feature to charge for the downloads, if I choose to have this for certain contents ?
hi. The web-app was not built in mind with a “charge for each download” option. However, since this is a very custom thing that you want, you would probably NOT find in any other file sharing system out there, you can actually very easily implement this custom change yourself, by adding the code that you need to our web-app, in case that you like how our web-app looks and behaves. Or hire someone to do the custom update. This will mean you will have 2 type of files : regular and paid. If someone clicks on “download” and the content is payed, a pop-up window will show up requiring him to pay via Paypal, or Credit Card. So you will have to get our app, have someone that can read basic simple PHP code, pay him to create the workaround + the PayPal + CreditCard integration, which will definitely be way more expensive than just grabbing our app.
It’s your choice. cheers
Hello. Can a user download multiple files at the same time? What I mean is can he select five files for download and have them all download or does he have to select one and wait for it to finish downloading before selecting another? We want to be able to see a list of files and check off the ones we need to download and then hit the download button. In our current situation downloading ten files takes forever because each file is connected to its own download button. So you can only download one at a time. Thanks!
Hi. Thanks for your question. In Google Chrome, you can click download on all files, one after another, and the files will start all downloading. So you can. In Firefox, you need to just click once on “Do this automatically for files like this from now on” once, and after that, it will work like in Chrome. Same for all the other browsers. So yes, the answer is affirmative. Thanks
5 star work, This is great, Thank you
thanks a lot maan really appreciate it
I like the program, and I am ready to purchase it, the only thing I have a question about…Is there a way to make separate folders for the admin, as you can see that list will become long and unorganized quickly.
I have not thought of making separate folders for the DropBox feature, as all your users will upload stuff there….you can leave your files in the dropBox or just delete them as soon as you download them on your computer…indeed, if you leave say 50 files there and not attend to them, it looks like clutter….I thought, at the time, that it is a convenient way to get back files from your users, that you immediately download (and eventually also erase from dropBox space)....the ideea is good, maybe I will modify the code and make it a feature in the future….at least something like each user will have its own dropBox folder…is that ok as an ideea ? let me know, cheers
Thank you for response, yes that is a good idea, I really like the layout and UI of your product is why I am drawn to it, I just was doing a bit of research before making a final decision. I appreciate your response.
I’m thinking more and more in updating the whole code I wrote, and maybe also making it responsive as back-end, because many people ask for different extra features….right now I’m in the middle of a 2 month project, so maybe somewhere in november, 2017….
are you still interested in aquiring this web app ? as a sidenote, I have decided after many months to re-build / upgrade the whole app, adding features like reponsive back-end ( mobile / tablet integration ) + adding the most important features people suggested over the years and of course, adding some other stuff that I think are necessary for a complete app of this kind. Thanks for you suggestions.
Do your great software have multi language in place to help those who don’t speak english?
Hey fredsoft ! At the moment, the only language available is “english”. You are the 1st person who asks for different alternative languages. If the person using it does not know english tho’, by browsing with Google’s Chrome browser, you will be able to translate it in your native (or any other) language, at any time. Much love, and Merry Christmas !
Thanks for your quick reply. My last question. Can it support WebDrive to manage uploaded files as well?
Our web-app is a stand-alone solution, as you have seen while browsing through the demo version. It has no connection to any other software out there. CHeers
Hi why does it show all users in a drop down box on the front page? Not very good. Also any planned updates for this?
Hi. It shows users because it’s your OWN personal file sharing tool, where each of the users select their user, get the files you share to them, and occasionally upload you back something if needed. It’s not a PUBLIC kind of system. We’re planning a complete overhaul of this system somewhere this year, including a lot of new features, some of which were pointed out by people here (such as the option of having instead of the dropdown with all users a field where the user will type in themselves the user name + a lot more on the backend side). Thanks for your interest in our little code project. Cheers
