    nfs? ssh (scp)? ftp? Transferring files is not going to be any
    different based on the application (Apache). Adding/removing files will
    be done via some kind of protocol for transferring files (see above).
    Editing them can be done by accessing the media and modifying them with
    a text editor. You need to access the server's environment somehow to
    do this. Is there something specifically you need to do or a problem
    you are trying to overcome?

    Good luck.

    detail
    There isn't much of a problem except for not knowing anything about linux and needing to add and remove files using FTP. i installed FTP on the server, but i cant find where to open it to set it up, i have been searching everywhere but i cant seen to find it. I am very new to opensuse, i have a very small knowledge with kubuntu. my friend helped me start the server, just until it worked, but now he just left me in the open and wont help me at all.

    Which 'program' were you referring to here? By default SUSE has SSH
    setup, so I would definitely recommend using that. Open the SSH port in
    the firewall (TCP/22) and connect with your username/password with your
    favorite scp tool. Not knowing your client I'll assume you have windows
    somewhere areound (sorry about that) and recommend WinSCP as a good
    piece of freeware you will soon learn to love. When you are running
    *nix/Mac/anythingElse you will have an SCP client built into your box,
    but for now at least WinSCP can get you where you need to be. WinSSCP
    is a graphical tool to let you copy files between boxes like any decent
    FTP client, support drag/drop as I recall, lets you see both boxes
    (client and server) simultaneously, etc. You will need to make sure you
    have rights to the directory from which Apache is serving pages
    (/srv/www/htdocs is the default) so be sure to give your user rights
    there. You can then drop files directly anywhere you have rights for
    the web server to serve to web clients.

    Good luck.
