I am running Debian on all PC's.
The server has Apache, Samba and FTP File Server.
There are some ways to mount such a server access locally as path.
This could be done readonly also.

So this would work for a read-access?
For writing the client should change the connection to read/write when he wants to add information.

Then the pictures will be saved separately simply?
I think that would be no problem.

Up to now i found no other application with such a nice functionality and the possibility for use in a intranet.
Another advantage is that packages for Debian are existant.
But the usage should be save enough when i try this way.

What will happen when the write of the file is disturbed?
Can it be repaired or just a backup of a previous version will help?
