    I am looking for options for file sharing at my web site. I would like something similar to the file sharing solution at www.9dx.com but I am looking for something that is free. I don’t care about web site design, I’m interested in file uploading. I need a way for people to submit art work to me which I can then evaluate and post on my web site. Some of the art can be rather large, more than 20 megabytes. If anyone can recommend a solution or has experience with a solution I would be very appreciative.

    I examined the sharing solution at that site you linked, quite nice.

    Is it correct to summarize your needs as:

    1) Integrated login environment (users database, session control, etc.)
    2) File Manager (upload, file dir's owned or associated with users)

    If you don't already have a proprietary login environment you might want to look into a PHP based open source solution like Drupal, which is a CMS that has a decent Database File Manager module (plugin):
