I want to provide my users with an easy URL that connects them to a specific file.

What I've got in mind would be something like "http://www.myserver.com/their_id_number."

So, if the URL, using the format I'm envisioning, looked like this: http://www.brucegust.com/12345 then it would direct the user to the appropriate page where I'm grabbing the id number and doing the necessary coding to provide them with the info I want to communicate.

I've got over 60,000 ids, so that number of folders isn't practical, but it seems I've seen what I'm trying to do. My question is: How? How do you set up your server in such a way where you have the capacity to do what I'm attempting?

Thoughts?
