    ftp question


    I have php and apache server. document root is /usr/local/apache/htdocs.

    There are some files in /usr/local/apache/htdocs/download which I want users to download through ftp.

    if I give this link on my webpage

    <a href="ftp://www.myserver.com/">ftp link</a>

    then should it open that folder or not ? How else can I do it ? How does Apache handles ftp server ? are there any settings for it ?

    Thanks in advance.

    apache doesn't handle ftp, an ftp server does
    typically Wu-FTP or Proftpd on a linux box.

    you would have to configure your ftp server to allow access to a specific directory for a specific/anonymous user.
