I personally would create a user-friendly front end to enable changes
online...  In the long run this would save time...  (I'd obviously code in
I would not want to continuously be loading and uploading and remodifying
record changes as that would be time consuming in the long run...
As your DB grows, obviously time taken to keep transferring the
files via ftp (I am assuming as most hosts have this capability) would
keep increasing though by a small factor but eventually this all adds
up and becomes an inconvinnience...  Obviously another thing to keep
in mind is that most of the hosts I have seen in Canada are on a
UNIX platform so if you are to create a user -friendly front end for
yourself you will have to be familiar with the UNIX chmod settings
i.e keep in mind writable scripts will have to be set to 666
and this would usually require familiarity with SSH as that would be
how you would alter the settings (its all online)...  Anywayz as
you are using PHP you are probably already familiar with UNIX
tools and utilities...  (Which may not even be necessary as
some hosts run the insecure MS Web Server software hence run
on a MS platform risking defacement)...

Anywayz, those are just my views on the issue...
