Has anyone ever done this? Is it possible. I want to bascailly upload a folder, which in turn will upload all the files in that folder.
Please advise.

No advice, sorry
but this interessts too.
May be it can be done with a zipped folder, wich is unzipped on the server somehow.

I know of no way to get the 'file' input type to allow you to select a folder rather than a file. It doesn't even seem to allow the selection of multiple files. (This control is one of my top candidates for "needs help").
If the folder is zipped into a single file, then it'd be just like uploading any other file (which can then be dealt with on the server however you wish).
hth,
