    With PHP, you can browse directories.

    When dealing with ftp servers, you need to use different functions, not the same ones for web based files.

    Have a look at http://www.w3schools.com/php/php_ref_ftp.asp

    thx
    now that i got a better idea of what im lookin for i guess i can reword it
    what im lookin for is a script that would automaticly login to a ftp acct
    then display all the files and folders as download links on a gen page
    ive just started to mess around with php programming
    not enough to do anything but to setup remade scripts
    and cgi programing seems to be just a longer version of php
    put i hear its the best for form stuff
