    We need a WebFTP-Script, which provides upload/download for dummies.

    https://www.net2ftp.com ist a good work, but too complicated for most users. Its not self-explanatory.

    Does anyone know of a good, easy to use script or framework? Thanks for any advice!

    Thank you for this quick answer!

    But we have to provide a WebFTP oder WebFileTransfer-solution (Port 80/443). The customer is behind a firewall, which only allows http(s)-access. The customer is sadly a technical null, so we cannot tell him to install or setup a FTP-client. Nor is he able to set up an FTP connection. :-( This is a dead end.

    I think the easyest solution is to write some php_ftp scripts on our own. Bummer!

    Thanks @ahrasis a lot for writing!

    If any other has some hints, feel free to post afterwards.

    I don't think you did read my suggestion as elfinder is indeed a web based ftp which you have to install and run it on your web server.

    Plus, I do not think writing own php ftp scripts is a smart move but more like suicidal.

    One possibility is to use SSH mount. That way the website files are usable from the file manager on users workstation. Link to tutorial in my signature.
    If user is clueless, you would need to go and set this up yourself for the user.
