The issue I am working with is that I need to deliver some large PDF files to clients, and the files are to large to email (5+ mb).
A friend told me a good way to do this would be setting up an FTP server on our website. That way I could upload the files with a username/password, provide the client with that, and have them download the files from our website.
I have tried Google-ing and looking on this and a few other tech forums to get an idea of how this would be done, and I can't figure it out.
A general explanation of the concept would be awesome. Also, if you have a different solution on how to deliver the files that would be great too.
My two most important questions are:
1. Is this something that someone with no programing (or HTML) experience can do?
2. If so, what all do I need? I've seen some stuff about using windows servers (2003) and a program called FileZilla, but nothing that explains how this is done.
Advice is greatly appreciated, even if it's only to tell me that I am in way over my head on this one
