I'm not sure if I'm asking the right question here but I did my best. I have a good enough understanding of basic html and css but that is about it. I'm willing to learn which is why I'm putting myself through this to try since it's my own server. I've seen this done on some sites and I was just curious how they did it because I've been using the basic fireftp with firefox to connect but I thought a website would be cool to try to do. I'm not sure if I'm surfing for the right terms but every time I try I get services or companies that offer a web based FTP but don't exactly explain how to do it on your own. Or maybe it's just that difficult. Here is one site that I saw it on, for reference. http://raventek.net/projects.php When you click on one of them it prompts for a user name and password then takes you to a list of files. It looks like its PHP. Is this the only way to do it and are there sites that anybody knows of that gives some instructions on this? Or am i asking too much here for a newbie to all this website stuff.
