I'm a total noob at this, I have done some other programming, but never php, anyway, I need a web portal for an FTP site I run, all works well but, when I download files the script caches the file on the same server before download, the files I am shifting are aprox 500mb, so this doesn't work well as you can imagine, it usually crashes the portal....

There was a modified script that did away with the caching, and I have updated the code, all seems to work, it des a direct push to the browser, but always saves a zero byte file.

The update script is described here


Any help on solving this would be much appreciated.

Using ftp_fget to output the file directly may work. Something like:
header('Content-type: text/plain'); //Whatever headers you need to send

$outfile = fopen('php://output', 'w');
ftp_fget($ftp, $outfile, 'the_file.txt', FTP_BINARY);
