XXVIII. FTP functions

The functions in this extension implement client access to file servers speaking the File Transfer Protocol FTP as defined in http://www.faqs.org/rfcs/rfc959.html.

The following constants are defined when using the FTP module: FTP_ASCII and FTP_BINARY.

In order to use FTP functions with your PHP configuration, you should add the --enable-ftp option when installing PHP 4, and --with-ftp when using PHP 3.

Example 1. ftp() example

// set up basic connection
$conn_id = ftp_connect("$ftp_server"); 

// login with username and password
$login_result = ftp_login($conn_id, "$ftp_user_name", "$ftp_user_pass"); 

// check connection
if ((!$conn_id) || (!$login_result)) { 
        echo "Ftp connection has failed!";
        echo "Attempted to connect to $ftp_server for user $ftp_user_name"; 
    } else {
        echo "Connected to $ftp_server, for user $ftp_user_name";

// upload the file
$upload = ftp_put($conn_id, "$destination_file", "$source_file", FTP_BINARY); 

// check upload status
if (!$upload) { 
        echo "Ftp upload has failed!";
    } else {
        echo "Uploaded $source_file to $ftp_server as $destination_file";

// close the FTP stream
