RearSite is a Web publishing tool that lets users manage files from a WWW interface and update their personal home pages without using any commercial product or FTP. A logged-in user has access to his home directory and is able to delete, rename, and create documents. RearSite is able to upload WWW directories previously created (using any editor). It's very easy to transfer and install archives (ZIP, tar, or tar.gz). Users can set up HTTP access rights to their directories, share those directories with trusted users, and create per directory forums and chats for groupware or distance learning.
