File copy script

Provide a script that copies contents from a working directory to a production directory on the same website. Full context follows below… I’m a web hosting provider. I have a PHP program that provides web based (WYSIWYG) editing. The way the PHP program runs on my server, I have to give full rights (777) to the folder where the users save their files. I’m not comfortable leaving their folders with full permissions due to the risk that someone else could modify or write content. The solution I foresee would use a CGI script that copies content from a password protected working folder to the production folder (httpdocs). Example.... My customers would create / edit their work in the working folder. Once their work is complete, they would run this script to 'promote' their content (html files and graphics) to a production folder (i.e httpdocs). My hosting provider says that CGI will run as the site owners’ username so I can leave the rights to the production folder as read only.

## Deliverables

1) A script that copies content from one folder to another within the same site. Copying all files is OK, however if files could be selected from a list as well, this would be even better. 2) A setup script that installs the script into the users /cgi-bin/ folder and automates any configuration commands. 3) Complete and fully-functional working program(s) in executable form as well as complete source code of all work done. Other Although not a requirement if the install script could copy the PHP editor to a working directory within the site and password protect the directory this would be great in that it would automate the effort I’ll need to do when I set this up for each customer.
