    FTP
    A server side file manager would have to be written pretty well to be secure and would still involve ftp unless it was give write access to certain directories.

    I haven't heard the best way to do that yet.
    For ftp access , you can upload files faster than web ftp or file managers which allows us to upload files by files.
    FTP access is like our system ; copy and paste.

    Is there another thing you mean ? - users sending files to your server ? you yourself sending files to your server ?

    yeah, there are two things : https:// and ftps://

    https://webftp.xxxx.com is secure as ftps://xxxx.

    Web ftp would be secure. I think what he means by "server side file managment script" is a PHP script something which can view the contents of directories and have access to modify/delete files as well as write them. The connection to the server using the latter would have to be encrypted.

    Well a ftp client gives you more options if you're on a unix host, like chmod etc whereas with webftp you're just navigating to ftps://yoursite.com/whatever and viewing / adding / deleting files.

    As in the operating system that the server is running. Versus a Windows host which would be running a version of Windows Server.
