I'm trying to create a document bank. I need users to be able to upload documents to the site and then they will be able to download other documents. I can't figure out how to set up the uploading. I've seen some downloadable programs that could work but I'm don't want to spend $$.

I know users could just email attatchments to me but I was hoping to be able to have them upload directly to the site, like youtube.

Thanks a lot

Also note you are limited to the file size set in the config.

So if you are on a shared host you may not be able to upload the size files you want.

Here's (http://docs.moodle.org/en/Administration_FAQ#How_do_the_limits_on_uploaded_f iles_work.3F) a handy link for you.

You shouldn't have to edit that, though, considering you're only uploading text documents.

Check out the article Chris posted, it does a good job explaining the PHP behind file uploading. If you're not PHP savvy, post back and I'll look around for a free premade script.
