I am involved with a very small residential management company which has a lot of documents that I want to digitise into PDF and put on the web for all residents to access. Many people are not technical, so something simple to use is essential.
I have the skills to set up a server based LAMP-based solution, albeit one that should not cost significant amounts of money to purchase or maintain, hence open-source, preferrably with a small memory footprint. Everything I have looked at so far though (such as Alfresco, KnowledgeTree and LogicalDOC) seem like major overkill, and complex both in terms of setup and for users.
I was thinking along the lines of something like AjaxExplorer, which seems to do the file browsing part of what I want to do admirably. In terms of full-text searching, is there a product that will work with AjaxExplorer, or something else that can work alongside it, that people would recommend as a relatively easy to configure tool for indexing and subsequently searching a document repository?
It would be acceptable to have separate areas of the front-end for browsing the file tree, and simple searching by filename / metadata and full text search, if, as I suspect, there is no suitable integrated solution.
