Private Imageshack possible?

apps

#1

Hello: I was wondering if it might be possible to host some sort of private imageshack type application. I have a domain and gobs of hard drive space and would love an application like imageshak (and would love if I can host without those damn ads!)

Thanks!

You could do it with PHP fairly easily.

Sorry, I’m not too savvy with this … talk to me like I’m 10.

There’s a One-Click install of Gallery 2.

It hosts more than just images, such as video and audio.

What is it that appeals to you about ImageShack?

You’d use a database for authentication and for file tracking.

Have a form on a page so an autheticated user can select a file from their PC to be uploaded. On successful upload the script would then return links with and [bbcode] so the user can embed the image into their forum post/blog, etc.
