php ftp_get not downloading entire files


Recommended Posts

I am using ftp_get to download files but sometimes when it downloads an image it downloads it but the image is damaged. So it seems like it is only downloading part of the image then closing the connection to that file. The ftp_get still returns true.


here is what I am doing

public function download_single_file($file, $dest_file){
	return ftp_get($this->ftp_conn, $dest_file, $file, FTP_ASCII);

Any ideas on why this may be happening? 


Thanks in advance for any assistance.

I tried both FTP_ASCII and FTP_BINARY and both have the same effect.

This is what the file should look like:


and this is what it looks like when I download it using ftp_get with either FTP_ASCII or FTP_BINARY

I think, you do not need to worry about manually configuring the proper mode when transferring files using this php ftp library. Wouldn't be automatically determining the proper transfer mode based upon the contents of the file or the file's extension?
