can someone recommend a free file hosting script?
I am talking about something like megaupload or any of the other file sharing/uploading services out there.

the best one I could find seems to be this one: but it is not compatible with the latest php version as of Debian Squeeze and I am not sure I would want to install another php instance just to give this one a spin...

the only other script i found is celeron dude's uploader but he stopped selling it and its quite old anyway...

If i was you i would buy a file hosting script with none of the code encrypted so that you can alter it to how you want it to be. Thats what i did, itl save you alot of time.

I used yetishare,
you could also find lots on google

I've heard about it, but not all reviews are good, that's why I'm not sure that is a good idea.

ah really? what bad reviews were there? think its impossible to not get any negative feedback.. but weigh that up against the good. Had that issue on my youtube channel, would always be that one troller who gives it a thumbs down or negative comment because they didnt like the song or my voice lol.

You can build one by using jsTree and JQuery datatable which are free and only require JQuery. They both can be configured to use ajax and can be themed by either using a JQueryUI theme or by providing your own css. I use that combination in one of my projects and am pretty pleased with the results. There is also CKFinder and the filemanager from TinyMCE which cost money but can be configured to work together with most server sided technologies. They also integrate with CKEditor/TinyMCE so you can supply document editing capabilities inside your file hosting website.
I don't really know the script mentioned above but after taking a quick look at its download site it seems to work with ftp servers which, in my opinion is not what you want your file-hosting service to work with. Big hosting plattforms like Google Drive use BigData Databases which are elastic so that you can add more servers to the database cluster on demand and thereby increase the overall storage. This is not at all the same as 'bundling' some ftp servers together. This approach does not provide very much flexibility or security. Take a look at which can be used to work together with CKEditor. If you want to code the filestorage yourself there is ontop of which I am currently building a file-storage service that is supposed to host many terrabytes of data.
