    I would like to allow users their own directory and the ability to upload HTML files to this directory. What are the different methods I might employ to do this, and the easiest? Thanks in advance..

    Why do you want to do this out of curiousity? It opens up a ton of security vulnerabilties.

    BTW there's a PHP upload tutorial here you can check out.

    Basically at this time I just need a way to let visitors put a webpage detailing their cars on my site. It will have basic elements, HTML & pictures, similar to other popular car communities. Because the services I use must be free at this time, I need to keep it simple to use what is available to me. I have investigated some free PHP hosts, but it seems like a language that would have a considerable learning curve in terms of time to accomplish my goal; again basically I just want a simple method to start out. I will be supervising the entire system, and manually issuing accounts. I was going to also take users' pages and upload them myself, but then they would be unable to make changes without consulting me, and it would be bothersome for them. Naturally I don't intend on leaving things this way if it becomes popular, but for now its just kind of an experiment, to see what I am capable of I guess.

    probably better, allowing them to upload a picture, and then have a form that they can enter details into, and store all that in a database.

    if it were upto me, I'd take everything and put it into a database, then show them using a template and apache rewrite rules.

    Either way you will need a dynamic language of some sort, Javascript won't cut it because it's only client-side.

    Now is there a way to prevent members from uploading to any directory besides their own, and give each member their own directory, with CGi, htaccess, or a similar method? Unfortunatley, a MySQL databse is not available to me.

    yeah, just set the path to the folder in the script so they can't change it. so when they upload a file it uploads to there folder.
