    I want to create a secure area within my web site to which clients and I can upload documents rather than send them via email (like Googledocs, except confined to my site). Each client would need to log in to their own secure area, upload to and download from it, and have some way of easily seeing what's there. Does anyone know any suitable software to organise this? I have searched on phrases such as "online document management systems", but I just get reams of hits for companies offering the service and nothing that will help me create one myself.

    There are quite a few out there like DokuWiki or Drupal (with the document API ) that will allow you to do this.

    Thank you for your very quick response. I've looked at these, but unless I've misunderstood what they are about I don't think they are what I need. It's more of a storage area within my website that I want. For example, I give my client a user name and password for his own area of the site; he uploads a spreadsheet; I download it and work on it; I upload it; he can access it from the secure area, work on it and upload it again for me to look at. There needs to be some way of tracking the document going into and out of the secure area and a listing of the documents there. Does this make sense?
