Online file converter for MS-and OpenOffice Documents

I stumbled upon this really nice site, and spontaniously decided to code a small page,

wich lets you convert Office documents into various formats.

[update]Today I’ve found a few uploaded documents, which weren’t converted neither deleled. They all had a white space in their filename in common. I’ve fixed this bug, and deleted the documents. Sorry for the inconvenience.[/update]

Usage

  1. Select a document from your hard disk, and hit Upload File
  2. Select the target file type, and hit Convert document
  3. Download the converted document. Hit Download document

Note: If download shows a blank page, and now download has taken place, then it’s may due to the characters in the filename, which can’t be handled. Please rename your file and in a way, no special characters are involved anymore.

This project is called JODConverter, and need a running OpenOffice as headless server. A matrix of all formats can be found on their site also.
Why I was so fond of it, was because it’s quite easy to code a little web-application, and offer these services to the public.
The time I’ve needed such a service, I didn’t find anything working, free of nagging (EMail bagging). So here’s my tool free for public use. (Google Ads only ;-)

The script is very basic and one might bring this application easily to fall. If I’ll suffer from break-in attempts or other stuff, I will be forced to take it down again, because I can’t risk the servers intergrity.

The original neither the converted files won’t be recorded, logged, analysed, or anything else evil won’t be done. They will be deleted after download.

    navigation’s a tad odd, if you ask me, but works fine.
    thanks.
