Projects / Nephthys


Nephthys provides a Web interface to create file-sharing "buckets", through which data can be shared. Nephthys handles the buckets in the local filesystem of the server. Access and data transfer is made via FTP and WebDAV. Nephthys itself does not provide the access protocol, but relies on well known projects like Apache HTTPD (WebDAV) and ProFTPD (FTP).

To get a better overview, Nephthys now displays details about buckets like the number of files and directories within and the last modification time.

            A great way to transfer files between internal and external users. It's great to replaces FTP servers, stop the abuse of smtp to transfer big files (it's a awful protocol to transfer files, but people use because is simple) and helps contain the information that would otherwise be put on third party (the "cloud") file sharing services. Its amazing that is still almost unknown!
