Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
Any hints are appreciated!
It is likely that the configuration on your new server is prohibiting you for some reason, it could even be something as simple as a different version of the server-side software you are employing. Have you asked the hosting provider yet what the hangup might be?
Please note that if you are trying to connect externally from your hosting with us you will need to use our proxy server. The help article located below will give you the address for the proxy server with the port number included.
And in that article they referred me to it says:
On our shared hosting, any CURL applications that make secure HTTP connections (HTTPS over port 443) need to pass through a proxy server. The address for this proxy server is proxy.shr.secureserver.net and connections must specify the use of port 3128. The code below already includes this information.
Now what I dont understand -im a complete beginner as i said- is whether that will work for my script, which is on PHP (they talk about using CURL) and to connect to FTP instead of HTTPS. Is it possible to incorporate the use of that proxy server and port number in php to connect to ftp?
Thanks for your help
cURL is a library that allows you to connect and communicate to many different types of servers with many different types of protocols. PHP added the cURL functions [php.net] in PHP 4.0.2.
