Summary

In previous days you've learned how ColdFusion is an excellent tool to promote interactivity, and you've learned how to work with text values input by your users. Today's lesson demonstrates that ColdFusion can handle much more than just snippets of text as input. With powerful tags such as <CFFILE> and <CFDIRECTORY>, you can give users the ability to create and update entire files on your server. You can also give your clients the ability to update their own Web content without having to master FTP software.

As with any application that gives users direct access to your server, <CFILE> and its associated tools involve a certain amount of risk. When you design applications that use the tag, it's extremely important to take security into consideration.
