Suggestions on simple web forum and file upload

Post by henrik » 12/19/06, 7:39 pm

I'm looking for some simple web forum software that also has some file uploading. It will be around 10 persons that should share files (mostly word and pdfs) and talk on a web site, but it should not be public. That is that one needs to log in to be able to view the content.

If possible some sort of grading on the users like read, write, delete. But except for that just something that is simple to administer and use without any bells and whistles.

I have a domain that is on Linux and Apache web server and can have both mySQL and MSSQL. Of course it would be nice if it was freeware.

Any suggestions are appreciated.

PHPbb has become the standard. You can set it to allow uploads.

Thanks for the tip. I tried phpBB2 with some attachment mod, but it doesn't work with any other graphical style except for the default one...

It seems like phpBB3 will have attachment functionallity out of the box, but I'm not sure when it will be released.

Have you tried Basecamp from 37Signals? For $12 bucks a
month you can have uploads and the features you are looking for.
It is better to be here than there - SOD

I used to use their to do list all the time. Pretty damn cool as a poor mans Bugzilla, didn't have all the features I needed though so I eventually stopped using it.
I answer rhetorical questions for my own enjoyment.
