    How can I allow my customers to upload their files or Photos in my website easily?
    Currently, I'm running a website which is not too big, so I want to step another step forward by allowing my customers to upload their small Photos and Documents.
    Could anyone kindly tell me the way that work great and easy for customers?
    I really appreciate every bit of help.

    actually, no. I don't like coding. I'm a network engineer.
    What I wanted is the easy way to do it.
    Anyway, could you share your PHP?
    I also want to know it.
    Thanks for replying.

    This is a great tutorial with PHP: http://www.w3schools.com/PHP/php_file_upload.asp

    But if you don't like coding then I would use Dropbox to do the job for you: http://www.ampercent.com/dropbox-uploader-allow-users-upload-files-dropbox-account/ (Easy set-up)

    If you're using wordpress for your site, this can be easily solved with some of the following plugins:

    1. Frontend Uploader
    2. Magn WP Drag and Drop Upload
    3. SB Uploader
    4. Windows Desktop and iPhone Photo Uploader
    5. WordPress Flash Uploader
    6. WordPress Flash Uploader
    7. Nmedia Users File Uploader Plugin

    With the PHP you can easily allow your user to share photos and videos. You may also your dropbox to solve your problem. I think dropbox will be more helpful than PHP for you.

    Here you can find some tutorial at online just "php uploading tutorial" in google ( i can't share link because i don't have enough post)..

    Please keep in mind there is high chances that if you did not secure you file with htaccess or verify uploaded files, then user can easily upload shell or worm at your website.

    Thanks,

    Are you using WordPress as your CMS or you have a custom coded website? Would need to find this out before I tell you which way to go. Thanks.
