PHP/Java/Anything that can split files, while files stay on Server?

Basically, can i create archives or just even split files, from my browser? While i keep the files on my dedicated server..., on a hosting plan.

sorry for such a question. but is there anything that can do this? without me literally downloading it, splitting the files and then uploading it.

If it matters the server is on CentOS4

My initial thought is that this is entirely possible, but probably absolutely inadvisable: in order to do this, you would have to make files on your server writable from your (or anyone else's) web browser, which is a gaping security hole.

Having given that caveat, what types of files are you looking to split, where did they come from, how are you trying to split them (evenly sized chunks, according to some delimter...??), why is moving them off and back on to the server such a hardship?... the answers to these will determine how much of a tradeoff it's worth making to get this to happen.
