Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I'm looking for a simple way to share documents/files with other people via a web-based interface. The requirements are the following:

  • runs on Linux
  • web-based download/upload
  • versioning
  • basic authorization (users/groups)
  • free

The enduser-visible interface should be as simple as possible, I don't want to confuse the non-technical users.

Thanks. I'll try it but I was looking for something smaller. Alfresco seems like overkill for my modest needs. –  Mad Scientist Aug 16 '10 at 14:28
I had a look at Alfresco and it definitely can do everything I need but it is about an order of magnitude too powerful. I'm really looking for a limited software that is easy to set up. This is an academic environment, we don't have a dedicated sysadmin, all server stuff is done on the side by PhD students. –  Mad Scientist Aug 16 '10 at 17:47
