I want to set up file/photo sharing for a largish group of friends and family. Flickr, Picasa etc. are not optimal solutions because setting up accounts, sharing albums and navigating privacy settings is going to be overwhelming for some of the people. I just want to be able to give people a URL, a username, and password and have it be easy peasy.
I want something very simple and easy to use (for the user) like MyTunesRSS. I've looked at a complete "social" solution like Elgg but that feels like using a cadillac to kill a fly. I only need:
- User management
- Simple upload / download of files
- Plug-into-MAMP ease of setup is a bonus
- Search / metadata / tags / commenting not necessary but also earns bonus points
- Free / cheap licence
What would you recommend?
