  also... with databases you can go faster.
  There are ways to prevent what trouble sayd from happening, but it's just 
easier to use a database.
  Thanks,

    The only problem with using text instead of a database is the condition in 
which 2 clients modify the database at the same time.  MYSQL and other 
databases presumably prevent this from happening. You can also set of user 
accounts or just allow uploads or mods from anyone, which is rather dangerous.

      The best way is to store the files on the hard disk of the computer, and 
if you will need to upload new files, or delete some of them, store a path to 
the files in a database like MySQL or SQLite. If you don't need to upload new 
files, or modify the list of files in any way, you can use a simple text file 
for storing those file names. (I gave the second suggestion, because if you are 
asking about a database, I think you might find easier to work with text files).

        Hello:

             I am about to receive over 11,000 pdf files that I want to put up 
on a website. These are images that when printed on capsule paper will produce 
tactile images. The idea is that a teacher or parent could look through the 
list, select a file and then place an order to have it printed. It has been 
suggested to me that I use a database for this sort of operation. I do have an 
Excel spreadsheet with descriptive information about each file. I am looking 
for suggestions regarding what database would be good to use. Thank you.

        Regards,

        Robert Jaquiss
