View Full Version : server-to-server FTP'ing
1-3-02, 04:07 AM
Has anyone successfully done server-to-server FTP'ing. If so, could you please let me know what software you are using and how you got it to work.
The PowWeb support staff says that it should work but have been completely unhelpful and suggested that I ask someone else for help!!!!
I've not seen a script that would automatically transfer files from one server to another although they may exist. PHP is quite capable of opening a socket and pulling in a file from another server. You may want to get a web-based FTP client and pull it apart to see how it ticks. Keep the FTP portion and re-write the 'front-end' to perform your automatic functions instead of accepting user input from a web form. A few possibilities to start:
Keep in mind that limited execution time of PHP scripts (can be lengthened) and the loading of the server.
