Nothing against SSH, but I want to keep my file transfers graphical. 
Really not interested in doing that by command line (nor in having a 
debate about it)...

I understand and agree with your point about the password. Keep in mind 
that this data never leaves our network: the local machine and the 
Apache server are both on our * intranet * physically inside the museum. 
Nothing gets sent outside of our walls. However I welcome you to come 
visit in June and set up TLS/SSL for us.
