ftp_fut() not uploading

Recommended Posts

ftp_put() is not working. this is what i have.

$host = "www.site.com";
$ftp_user_name = "username";
$ftp_user_pass = "password";

// declair files
$remote_file = "ITS_BLI_0".$_POST['id'].".csv"; // root level
$file = "/upload/ITS_BLI_0".$_POST['id'].".csv"; // this file dir is root/manager/posts/

// connect to remote server
$hostip = gethostbyname($host);
$conn_id = ftp_connect($hostip);

// login with username and password
$login_result = ftp_login($conn_id, $ftp_user_name, $ftp_user_pass);

// IMPORTANT!!! turn passive mode on
ftp_pasv ( $conn_id, true );

if ((!$conn_id) || (!$login_result)) {

echo "FTP connection has failed!";
echo "Attempted to connect to $host for user $ftp_user_name";

} else {

// upload a file
if (ftp_put($conn_id, $remote_file, $file, FTP_ASCII)) {

echo "successfully uploaded $file<br>";

} else {
echo "There was a problem while uploading $file to $host<br>";


// close the connection


[list]I have done the following allready.[/list][list]Used both FTP_ASCII and FTP_BINARY in ftp_put().[/list][list]Passive mode must be on.[/list][list]I have tried ftp_fput().[/list]
Is there a fix? Or maybe a way to view why its erroring on ftp_put().

thanks, [es]
