Fast PHP example - FTP file upload

Here is one fast and simple example on how to do FTP file uploads with PHP.

$ftp_server = "ftp.server.url";

$ftp_user = "user";
$ftp_password = "password";

$file_to_upload = "localfile.txt";
$remote_location = "/location/file.txt";

// set up connection or exit with message
$flink = ftp_connect($ftp_server) or exit("Can't connect to ftp server: $ftp_server");

// login or at least try  
if(ftp_login($flink, $ftp_user, $ftp_password)) {

 // if login successful use ftp_put to upload the file
 // if you upload binary files use mode FTP_BINARY
 if(ftp_put($flink, $remote_location, $file_to_upload, FTP_ASCII)) {

  echo "Success! File is uploaded!";
 } else {
  echo "Can't upload file";

} else {
 echo "Can't login with this user & password";
