NETTUTS.com has posted this new tutorial about using the CodeIgniter PHP framework to create a simple file hosting site (where a user can upload a file and it's linked and available for download immediately).
I have seen a few introductory tutorials for Codeigniter, and was hoping to show you something a little more advanced. This tutorial will show you how to build a powerful web application for hosting images, using the flexibility of Codeigniter. This tutorial should teach you about the MVC coding philosophy, integral to producing serviceable applications.
Henry (the author) walks you through the setup and configuration of the database and source, but you'll need to have a copy of the CodeIgniter framework working and have a basic knowledge of how it's all laid out. The mini-application includes a login form that authenticates off of a MySQL database and the actual upload form that lets users submit their files and display the ones currently available for download.
