TL;DR I used PHP, JS and MySQL to create my personal project FileUp.
Why a File Storage Website?
First of all, FileUp is a lot more than just a file storage website, but I'll get into that a little later. Since I've started developing for the web, I've found myself struggling to share images of video with others, without uploading through Google Drive or directly onto my site. That's when I took matters into my own hands, and developed FileUp.
FileUp is a simple website built using PHP and jQuery Ajax. It has custom displays for different files, such as a custom video-player and audio-player, as well as analytics.
