    Php ftp

    Im trying to put together a PHP FTP client and ive recently hit a wall regarding downloading files. From what i can gather ftp_get will download the file from an FTP server to the webserver. But what i need is to download a file from an FTP site to the client, using a webserver's front end. Much like.. http://www.webftp.co.uk/. Is there anywhere out there that explains how to go about this, im not sure what to look for.

    Any tips welcome!!

    As long as you want to keep the PHP server in between, as a relay for the data, you have to do a download in 2 steps, first ftp_get the file from the FTP site to your site and then send the file to the client via HTTP.

    I´ve recently had a similar problem, where the solution looks like this: click here

    You only have to replace my DB-read with your ftp_get
