I have another question for you guys. Can this idea be done? Right now I'm the only one who updates my site due to the fact that it involves updating files ( ie: 9800download.php, 9330download.php, etc) and then having to navigate to the folder these are located in via FTP and then upload them...Well I have a friend who would like to help but its a PITA for him to navigate to find the file to update, download the file to his desktop, edit/update it, then upload it back to the folder to update the content...Is it possible to set up a form where he can select which file he would like to update by checking a check box and then click the download button to than download that file so he can edit them really quick. THEN to be able to click a browse button and locate the file on his PC and again, check a check box for the file he would like to replace (update) or folder to upload it to. Then obviously just hit an upload or update button and the file then is uploaded to the correct folder.
I'm just thinking out loud here to get kind of give an example..

Yes, you can, but you'll want to protect such access with passwords, etc.
If this is someone you trust this sounds more like an FTP access question... which also relies on password/access... and as a secondary, should be limited to only the top level folder where such access takes place (and that is NOT your root folder!)
It would be great if I could just get the code to use the ID with out having to use the rest of the file name as well. I tried making it so the file name would be UYBB6.0_9800.exe and everytime we would upload, we would rename it to that. But then it got to be a hassle cuz then we would have to rename the older file and then rename this newer file. I want to be able to keep the file name UYBB6.0.0.#*$!_9800.exe where the ID just looks at the 9800 and will prompt the download each time, no matter what the file name has before the "9800"
