Move it to a folder the user can't access (preferably out of the www folder). Then just reference it. If you can't because it's not your own server stick it in a special folder (like config) and put a .htaccess in it preventing access to it by webusers.

It is my own server, but I think I will just use .htaccess rules since I want this script to be available for anyone to download and it would be easier if they don't have to change the config directory.

I do love the layout of the site and the GUI is very nice.

MeltingIce - You said you wanted to make this script available to everyone.  That means that you can't hardcode the username and password to the MySQL database.  How and where do you plan on storing that data?

I have written a register.php script that takes a username and password (and hashes the password of course) and sends it to MySQL  ;)

By the way, when I say make the script available to anyone, I mean anyone can download the script, upload it to their server, and run it themselves.

Yeah, I know that.  Sorry, I didn't phrase my question well.  You will need the username and password to the MySQL database somewhere.  Something like "mysql_connect ('localhost' , 'username' , 'password');" will have to be used - if this script can be used on other servers, you shouldn't require the admins to hard-code their username and password.  How are you planning on getting around that problem?

That's where the config.php comes in. That holds the user/passwd. That's why he wanted to make it impossible to download ;)

Well, right now I'm doing it the way a lot of scripts do it, but I might change that later on.  Heres the code for my config.php script:

<?php
/*Needed MySQL information.  Make sure to fill it out correctly!*/
$mysqlhost "localhost";
$mysqluser "username";
$mysqlpass "password";
$mysqldb "database";

$uploaddir "/home/meltingi/public_html/uploaddirectory/"//Absolute base upload directory


@mysql_pconnect($mysqlhost$mysqluser$mysqlpass)
or die("Could not connect to MySQL Server!");

@mysql_select_db($mysqldb)
or die("Could not select database!");

?>


Then I have a install.php script that you only run once and it automatically makes the database tables for you.

To be honest, I'm not entirely sure how to create tables in phpMyAdmin either but I know how to do it in PHP code  :P

If you know any programming languages like java, C#, C++, ect.  then PHP and python will be a breeze.  I was able to learn everything I needed to know to make this upload system in one day's worth of reading and work.  Just implemented a file viewer by the way.  Right now all it does is return text saying whats in the folder, so my next goal is to turn them into links.

Good do know, I may try my hand and doing some over winder break next week. As for the file veiwer if you could turn into links then that would be great!

Why, oh why did I bother learning a dead-end language like NSIS? As a consequence of learning NSIS before anything else, I have a habit of creating logical conditional stuff (ifs and elses) to an immense depth, and then getting confused (there is nothing like 'if' in NSIS, so I never end up with that problem when programming in it). That's why I rarely put a lot of PHP code into a single file - I end up spreading it accross a number of files...

Anyway, good luck with the project MeltingIce...

Thanks.  That will help clear it up for me, and also help out when/if I make my script available to the public.

My plan in the end is to actually make it so you can move, delete, create folders, and open files in your user folder.  I'll see how that goes though.  I might need to study some other directory listing scripts to see how they work.

EDIT: Just updated the preview page for kicks and giggles.  Basically thats how I want the final product to look.
