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 and with PHP 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 want to upload a file through a form, and then FTP it to another server ?

No, I want to know if it's possible to upload from the form using FTP instead of HTTP, is it possible?

There are examples to be found that use Javascript to open FTP in the browser, but that is not very secure.

As soon as you send your form to a PHP script, then the file is already sent to the server for you, you just need to move it to a permanent location.

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