in my opinion you'd save yourself some major hassle by allowing them to ftp
files like this directly to a server's directory via form based ftp. then
perhaps add a column that adds filenames to itself with the UPDATE sql query
type. this should be enough info for you to write php that could handle a
listing of these dynamicly. I'm still not entirely sure the details but this
is what I would do in the same situation. A db engine is for text, a server
is for storing files. IMHO
