  1. My internship tutor wants to make available, by means of a website (with authorized access), some of his professional files to be available for some of his coworkers?

    I tried suggesting several options: FTP client, NAS device or Router with USB.
    But he want to do it through a website that we are constructing right now, after of course, successful login identification.

    Is there a solution to what he wants?

    Yes.
    1. create user account management & login functions
    2. create website htdocs/shared directory
    3. in .htaccess disallow all bots
    4. only allow access to htdocs/shared for logged in users
    5. create cgi upload function locked to htdocs/shared AND allowed only by a list of known users
    6. on the home page, create a link to htdocs/shared which allows viewing for all
