PHP - ftp_put() not uploading

162 100+
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


  • I have done the following allready.
  • Used both FTP_ASCII and FTP_BINARY in ftp_put().
  • Passive mode must be on.
  • I have tried ftp_fput().

Is there a fix? Or maybe a way to view why its erroring on ftp_put().

thanks, [es]

You haven't said which of your output messages you are getting when you attempt, however I question this piece of code

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

is the upload directory really at the root of your directory structure?

Even if it appears atthe root of your hosted website that is not the root of that machines dirctory structure and php works off the machine root not the site root.

So I would say check that the soruce file is where you think it is, easily done with the file_exists function

if (file_exists($file))
echo "The file $filename exists";
echo "The file $filename does not exist";
