Depending on the nature of these "millions of files", you may want to consider a database-backed application rather than simply dumping the files into a directory tree of some kind.   I assume that you'll have to index your files in some way to make all of these web pages useful, so a database might be what you want instead of a simple heap o' html files.

Then you won't be dealing with millions of files.  A properly constructed database can be very efficient; a lot of very smart people have put a lot of thought into making it so.
