Wefis 1.4.2

Wefis is a tool designed to manage files on a web-server:
Wefis is a tool designed to manage files on a web-server: Wefis project works in a way similar to FTP, except that it is entriely hosted by the server. With WEFIS you can create, delete, modify, rename, copy, etc any file or folder in your section of the site (depending on WEFIS configuration), allowing the user complete freedom of operation...

WEFIS, contrary to most other (free) web-file-systems, is based on AJAX technology. What is AJAX you ask? AXAJ is the fancy anacronym given to the special javascript technique that fetches the minimum amount of information from the server without having to reload the entire page, similar to the technology which GMAIL uses. The result for the end user is that everything is faster, since much less information needs to be transferred every time, and so the whole system is pretty fast, even if the server happens to be slow,...

From the administration point of view, WEFIS bases its whole security on PRASI, a flexible user management system also developed by us. The use of this system makes site-wide authentication with only one password a reality, thanks to an extremely simple API which can be integrated into any perl module... PRASI is ideally suited for small to medium systems (in terms of the number of users), although it can be used for larger systems with slightly more hassle (setting up users is easy, but modifying 'services' may take more time)...

WEFIS is, therefore, your best dream come true. Written entirely in perl, it is designed for unix/linux systems, although porting it to windows should not be too hard (but is not yet done. If you want to do this, contact us!). Vs. 1.0.1, currently the latest version, is the first to be publically released. It has undergone many months of hard work and beta testing internally on our servers, and we believe most of the bugs to have been ironed out... There are, however, a few known issues which you may find in the bugtracker. These, however, do not influence your usage experience, except under certain very specific and unlikely circumstances. Supported browsers: mainly IE and FIREFOX and NETSCAPE (to be confirmed), but other mozilla compliant browsers should work...
