ftp function

P: n/a
Hello,

Everybody knows that you can edit a file directly from the ftp server with a
ftp tool, if you close the file localy the ftp server uploads the file and
it is saved on the server.

Is this also possible with php? i have seen a script (asp) do this, we only
work with php so i want a solution for php.

Thanks in advance for some info.

You don't edit a file directly from the ftp server.... you download the
file, edit it, and replace the original... .... I think...

That's right, FTP does not offer the possibility for edit any files. FTP can
just create directory's, upload files, download files. Also not you can
create a emtpy textfile, you MUST create it local and then upload the file.
If ASP or a FTP client can do that, it makes simply this few steps
(download, edit, upload).
