I'm trying to create an archive so that people can upload there newsletters, store them on the web server's harddrive, and display a link to each document in the archive.
At first I wanted to use something similar to filestore.php in KY's book, however, MySQL won't accept packets greater than 1MB (no, my hosting company won't adjust the variable to increase the packet sizes-changing companies is not an option at this point).
So, I'm wondering if anyone knows of a script or can point me to a tutorial that will explain how to use PHP and MySQL to manage the archive, retrieve the files, and write the HTML, but store the archive on the web server instead in the MySQL DB. This could be something similar to the automated photo gallery, but without the thumbnail creation.
Thanks in advance!
