Recommendation for serving files stored on VPS through a web index page hosted on another server?
Can LET recommend some scripts or ways to create a pooled index of stored on multiple servers and serve those files through a single http page? I remember having a free script that the creator had published many years ago that did this, but don't remember what it was called. Basically, it could be run in a server mode on the main server that served the index (and it could also locally have files to be served) or in a client mode on the other servers that were hosting files referencing the folder holding the files to be served. The script would generate an up-to-date pooled open directory-type index listing all of the files/folders on all of the servers and clicking to download any of them would serve the appropriate file. I don't remember for sure if it routed all downloads through the webserver, but think it may have.
E.g. Server A is a server with a small HDD, lots of BW, and a running webserver; Servers B-D are VPS with larger HDDs that have no webserver, but contain the files to be served. The goal is to have an up-to-date file index webpage accessible on Server A (e.g. https://domain.pointing.to.servera/mycrap.html) that is a complete index of the files I want to be served from Servers B-D such that I can download the files by browsing the index folders and clicking the file links. There is some flexibility as to whether Server A is a shared hosting account (with or without SSH access) or a VPS, though it would be great to be able to support both options.
