Hey!

I wonder if there's some kind of a free, good looking http frontend to access my files (e.g. pictures, music,...). Basically I backup all my files (documents as well as media files) on the plug and I want something that offers me the ability to access them over the web (a optimised view for my mobile browser would be nice too) in a comfortable manner. It should be something like the frontends of all these online storage services like humyo or dropbox, so something with a nice image gallery, maybe the ability to stream a music file, etc. . Maybe you know something like this?!

It is not free, but works very nice on your Sheeva. Like you have created your own 'cloud'.

Thanks for your answers.
Yes, something like tonido would be great, but I prefer a something free/open source!

The absolutely easiest way is to use just a webserver without any of these fancy content management systems; either lighttpd or apache will do, others might work too.  You're going to have to install a webserver first anyways, so give it a shot.

For lighttpd, you just need to edit the configuration file (/etc/lighttpd/lighttpd.conf) so that its document root (called "server.document-root" in the config) points to the folder in which all your files are stored, and make sure directory listings ("server.dir-listing", I think) are enabled.  Then, when you connect to your plug through a web browser, it should make all the files in that directory (and all directories below it) available for download.  To upload, you'll need a fancier system, but one step at a time, right?

There is an HTTP protocol extension for this purpose: WebDAV.

I'm aware of two implementations you might want to check out:

BarracudaDrive Web Server (for SheevaPlug , NSLU2, et al) and an Apache module if you're looking to roll your own.

I'm a Tonido user. While 90% of their applications are useless, it's FANTASTIC for browsing files and also creating quick share-points for friends to access. For $20, i like supporting them.
