    Question Serving lots of documents in a repository

    I'm looking for a solution to serve lots of word/pdf documents from a web site in a kind of repository. I've not really seen anything that looks easy to set up and administer.

    Ideally I'm looking for an open source solution.

    Has anyone experience of anything suitable?

    How about MS Sharepoint Services? They are free with Server 2003 and are great things. I use the big daddy of them but theres nothing wrong with the baby tools.

    Sharepoint would be my first choice. Also have a look at Knowledge Tree - built for the job - even comes as a pre built s/w appliance - must be good!

    Are they sensitive documents?

    I'll have a look at some of the options suggested. M$ products aren't really an option since my LAMP stack is running on Ubuntu

    We are a school involved in a lot of outreach and county development (not ICT related) and are looking for an easy way to share resources (potentially lots) with other schools and users whilst retaining some control.

    In an ideal world we'd have used the TES resource bank but if you've read their terms and conditions with regard to copyright you'd see why we are avoiding them.

    Thanks again for the suggestions.
