What web server code should I consider using for file hosting? (http deamon, i dont think i can choose FS. I may be able to choose an randomly offer linux distro the host offers)
The web server will only host files, with no need for cookies, reading a database, etc. The requirements are;
- Must be able to rewrite urls. Eg; /name/file-id.ext may resolve to /n/a/name/MainFolder/id/ext with file being a nice human readable name for the user when the user clicks save as.
- Stream FLVs, MP3, OGG, MP4
- Allow file transfer resuming
I imagine there's no such thing as a server that can't handle raw files like rar,exe,3ds or even a 1gb file with no extension, is this the case?
A plus would be if it could also serve thumbnails well but that may not be an issue.
