“I have used a few versions of file download management for clients and have had issues with all of them. This one is so simple that is just works. My main issue was that most scripts are not compatible with IE 8 or older, and it seemed my clients always had old browsers. This one worked like a charm! Hours and Hours of headaches have been erased.”

Please Note:

Files 4 Client does not upload files, it generates a list from files that were uploaded via FTP or an equivalent upload mechanism. Please see the Files 4 Client Pro Version if you want to upload your files inside the browser! If you want different configurations for different clients, you can simply multi-install the script to different locations.

Files 4 Client is not a replacement for a directory index per se, it is a tool that helps you transfering files by displaying them in a professional way. Please do not use it as a replacement of a conventional directory index!
