I need to make an inpute box that can select files on the server.How can that be done?

If you mean you want to list out the files in the server's directory so that the user can select one:

You can use PHP to get an array of the files on the server, and then use a loop to echo them back out...
( EXAMPLE: [a href=\"http://www.phpfreaks.com/phpref/90.php\" target=\"_blank\"]http://www.phpfreaks.com/phpref/90.php[/a] )

I don't know of any HTML that would be able to do this, you need a script to read the contents of a directory.. perhaps I'm wrong though - wouldn't be the first time.

If you mean that you want the user to be able to select a file on his/her PC:

<input type=file> is the HTML. Again, you really need PHP or another scripting language to be able to do anything but allow the user to browse his/her own computer..

I know it's not a great reply or a good answer, but I hope it helps point you in the right direction a bit. Good luck!
