What sort of things are Server Event Scripts used for?

Server Event Scripts are highly versatile, and could be put to some creative applications. Some common applications would be:

  • When a user uploads a file, check to see if it is encrypted; if so, automatically decrypt it and save a decrypted copy of the file to a local directory.

  • Send an email (or SMS text) alert when a specific file is uploaded.

  • Back up a user's files after that user logs off.

  • When a user logs in, copy the most recent version of a local file, zipped and encrypted, into their home directory.

  • Launch an external executable or database job and pass in the name of a newly uploaded file.

  • Hide or delete a file after it has been downloaded a specific number of times.
