Easy web frontend for sharing files off a server?

This is my current challenge. How to send a link to friends, so they can share their photos and videos from a recent holiday?

  • It should run on my own PC, not web-hosted; there may be much more than the free limit provided by many services (eg. 1GB Google, 2GB Dropbox, etc)
  • No need for account creation
  • Upload/download multiple files

It doesn’t seem that simple. One app I found is CCFileTransfer, which will run on a windows server, but is really dated, and only allows a single upload at a time.

Orb, which I use anyway, does have media file upload – but fails/crashes/doesn’t work/only allows one file at a time. #fail.

There are some other freeware frontends, that will compile/run on a LAMP server on Linux, and act as a frontend to an FTP server. Actually, not so bad… but I don’t have  time to set up a LAMP server, and configure a web frontend.

At present, it seems the options are thin.
