I need to develop a simple website on which pdf files can be hosted and the user can search and download those file. Its like online journal website for better understanding have a look at the website below we need a clone for the same with some reduced fucntionality.
Its more or less like a Periodicals Subscription & Management System if this could help in understanding it better.But again I need it with some reduced functionality.
What should be my starting point to go about the solution for this. I am also confused about technology I should use. I want to make it as simple as it can be don't want to end up complicating a simple task. So, please suggest the simplest approach to build the solution and perquisites for the same.
