Hello, I tried many different combinations to get this to work, but with no success. As always, I try my best and spend a lot of time in trying to get something to work before I ask for help on something.

My question is, how can I pass parameter from an online form, via FTP with PHP version 4?

Here is what I have so far, but am getting an error:

$path1= "../uploads/".$HTTP_POST_FILES['ufile']['name'][0];

// START FTP
// set up basic connection

$ftp_server = "mysite.com";

$conn_id = ftp_connect($ftp_server) or die("Could not connect");

// login with username and password
$ftp_user_name = "myusername";
$ftp_user_pass = "mypassword";


// upload $file - Either FTP_ASCII or FTP_BINARY
if (ftp_fput($conn_id, $target, $HTTP_POST_FILES["ufile"]["name"], FTP_BINARY))
{
echo "Successfully uploaded $target\n";
}

else
{
echo "There was a problem while uploading $source\n";
}

// close the connection and the file handler
ftp_close($conn_id);


// END FTP

You can't upload from the client using FTP if that is what you are trying to do? You will need to use the standard HTTP. FTP is for server to server file transfers.

Thanks, I thought I was able to use FTP instead of HTTP via a form to upload files. My mistake.
