Subject [users@httpd] Uploading files to Apache Server
Date Mon, 24 Sep 2012 11:52:11 GMT

I need a way to upload files to a remote Apache Web Server. Can you guide me on the best option?
I want to avoid setting up a separate FTP server on the same box if possible.

I have seen some options while browsing on the net:
1. WebDav - some sites say that it is an old protocol and performance on WAN would not be
2. NETBIOS shares - as it is a windows server, Netbios may work. But performance on WAN connections
is speculated to be bad.
3. Enable FTP protocol on Apache using Mod_ftp. Haven't managed to successfully configure
this module yet.

Also note that the file uploads will be via a JAVA application (not servlet/manual uploads).
So whatever is the option, it should enable uploads via a java application.
The files to upload will vary from 1mb to 30mb to upto 100mb (rare). Average size would be
WAN connection would restrict bandwidth to 30-40kbps speed per connection. So the option should
be able to sustain a file upload on such a slow WAN connection.
