Use either iCloud or SkyDrive, depending on what computer you have. If you have Linux, I'd use github, but use pastebin to post programs, because of the built-in pastebin program. For tracking your updates and beta/dev builds, use one of the options above.

000webhost is very simple, you just upload files via FTP or their in-browser file manager, and then you use http.get("mysite.somedomain.com/path/to/file")

You need to have it like this:
url = http.get("http://www.luascript.site90.com/Data.Serveur.lua")
if url then
  f = fs.open("fileName", "w")
  f.write(url.readAll())
else
  print("Could not connect!")
end
Remember to always have "http://"

You need to have it like this:
url = http.get("http://www.luascript.site90.com/Data.Serveur.lua")
if url then
  f = fs.open("fileName", "w")
  f.write(url.readAll())
else
  print("Could not connect!")
end

Thanks you very much !! ^_^/>

Public folders on dropbox do exist. They're just disabled by default:

If you can't be bothered to read the article, basically, to enable a public folder on a dropbox folder, head over to:

It's worth mentioned that Amazon has 1-year free packages of all their services, including 5GB of S3 storage with 20,000 GET requests per month. You could update a heck of a lot of CC programs with that.

No, it doesn't need 5GB. Are you going to turn down free stuff because it's too much?

Yeah. One year for your project to die or for you to find another solution. Or you just fork up the $0.095/GB/month if you're serious around your project.

Less than a penny a month isn't bad... But I guess I'll stick with free. :P

Sure, but you could have it for a year. I'd feel pretty comfortable betting your program won't be being used in a year.

I'm not saying it's the best solution, but it's good as any in this thread.
