A "File Manager"

I have found many different file manager scripts, but none of them were quite right. I have written a cgi guestbook script and it writes to a flatdatabase file. You can delete posts by deleting the post from the database, but that requires mulitple FTPs from the server to PC and back. I am offering this script from my site as a program, but I want the users to be able to administer to the database without so many FTP transfers.

Basically it would be like an online text editor that would allow them to open up the database file, delete the post(s) they want removed and then 'save' the database therefore removing offensive and multiple posts. I would configure the script to work as ad admin program for my guestbook program and offer it all in one zip.

If anyone can give me some hints or clues, I would be very grateful...as well as make mention of you on this script's page for the help.
