I have a form build with php script that uploads a file to my ftp site and emails me a message but I then can not access the file because of access rights or the file is corrupt. I am not sure which one it is. Has this ever happened to anyone?

Brian...I can paste the code here if need be.

Brian Welcome to WebmasterWorld!
Please show us some script.

Keep the sample somehow short and related to the problem area.

Sometimes sloppy uploads come from the wrong encoding type on the upload form. For example, you commonly need to use enctype="multipart/form-data" for transferring binary files.
