One generally maintains a website, its folders and content via FTP.
Indy, for example, has easy to use FTP components.

Generally you can't unless the site has FTP access. IF your limited to http 
access (such as CPanel) you could theoretically write code to work with 
TIdHTTPClient but I'm sure it would be complex.

If you have FTP access then the way forward is to use TIdFTPClient. will have tips on using it to list folders on a FTP 

It's actually easy to create a folder but listing them and finding a folder 
with the name you want is a little more complex.

Good luck

Creating Folder When Creating User
Hi, I have a NetWare 6.5 SP6 server that is being used as a web server and the users only access via FTP & web. They do not login into it with a client at all. I have people setup to create users with iManager and it creates a home directory for each user they create. This is now the users web space. This setup has been working fine. They now want to have a second identical system with passworded access. So I need to create a second "Home Directory" in another folder. When a user gets created I need to be able to have the system create 2 folders one in data:/w...

Parse a Remote Folder to get newly created files
My scenario: An external application is creating a xml file every 5-10 seconds in a file server. I need to parse each file, just once, to create a record in a SQL table on real time. I tried some components (from LMD's and JAM's, see my post in thirdpartytools.general) but they fail on notifing the name of the file created on a remote PC, just report a folder is updated. Since at the end of the day there are about than 10,000 files in the folder I don't want to parse every single file, just the last (newest), to check if it's already on the table... Any help wi...

Create new remote from old remote
asa 8.0.2 I have will be creating a several new remote DBs that have exactly the same data in them. Is there any problems with using an old remote DB to create a new one and then change the sync user in the new one? Thanks There should be no problem if you take care to force synchronization to "start over again" for that remote. Here are six steps you can take to make *absolutely* sure dbmlsync.exe will not get confused about what happened beforehand, with this remote database: 1.

Limit of 32767 files in Win'98 folder when creating GW 6.0.3 remote database?
I'm trying to finish the creation of a remote database and seem to have hit a hitch whereby the ROFDATA folder has 32767 files, and it appears that it won't take anymore (weird errors when running send/retrieve, GWCHECK won't do a structural rebuild, I can't rename NGWCHECK.DB, ...). Is this a limitation under Win'98 (FAT32)? Why is GW creating so many files, does each one represent an email? Is this the max on a remote database, 32767 files? Thanks James 32767 is a magic number, so yes, I'd say that's a max. -- Michael J. Bell No...

Pages only being created in the temp folder and not in the web folder
I just installed Visual Studio Express on a Windows 2003 Test Server. When I create a new site everything seems to work. Solution Explorer allows me to create new files and they all show up inside it just fine. However when I try to browse the page I get a 404 error. When I checked to make sure I could browse a regular htm file, which I can, I noticed there are no files inside the folder at all. When I checked the temp folder C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\Temporary ASP.NET Files\webstuff The website folder name and a lot of my files show up there bu...
