How to make a backend where users can make a profile and upload files
Hi I am planning to build a backend where users can upload and download files such as (grabcad.com) here users can upload/download 3-D CAD models. Unfortunatley I have no idea how and where to start. I have finished my frontend and for some reasons the backend gives me hugh problems. The question is, is it enough to follow the php track in order to build a reasonable backend such as grabcad has or do I have to use a totally different language such as java. I was also thinking about drupal

This is well within PHP's capabilities and you should be able to pick up most of what you need to know to accomplish this within the PHP track here on Teamtreehouse.
You could also do this in Ruby on Rails and Python backend languages that are covered on this website.
Grabcad.com use Ruby on Rails as their backend language.
