FTP User Isolation is what you want to look at in Microsoft IIS7 - Configuring FTP User Isolation in IIS 7 : FTP 7 for IIS 7 : Publishing Content to Web Sites : The Official Microsoft IIS Site
HI I have been asked to set-up a web server for internal use by students creating websites and uploading them. Any ideas please?
WampServer, the web development platform on Windows - Apache, MySQL, PHP
For Linux, just install and configure Apache (or Litespeed), MySQL and PHP.
Is that the kind of thing you're looking for?
If this is for GCSE IT, get your teachers to check their syllabus carefully. This year (on AQA) there's been heavy emphasis on back-and-forth between the "client" and the student designing the site. Moderators were requiring the sites to be accessible by the client, not just accessible internally.
Having said that, here's Webman's guide:
linux:ubuntu:ftpwebserver [M0PHP Wiki]
Another vote for WAMP if its for students.
Very easy to setup and use.
Thanks can you create individual sites and ftp access to this site for individual students
It would be best to use SMB and the apache Userdir module - you could do that with ftp as well, but students are more used to mapped drives and it is trivial for samba to create the directories and set the permissions automatically on login. students would just see a mapped drive then upload using windows file permissions to their html folder.
Windows apache doesn't support userdir so you'd be better off with a linux one.
