This isn't the best way I'm sure, but it would be secure. Write a cgi
script running on an apache-ssl with mod_auth_system and do PUT uploads in
the users respective public_html directory, so you even do not need to
give a shell to these users. Just create some kind of file browser for
their public_html directory (of course that script should be audited), so
users can mv and delete files.
