script to specify a url to an file (exe, rar, zip, etc)

P: 60
I searched through google for a download/upload manager with the capability to upload files (exe/rar/whatever) directly from a web, but with no luck..

Does someone knows any ??? I prefer not to use SQL because they maybe a "little" heavy, like 20/60 MB.

I'm not sure what you are looking for.
Are you building a web application where ppl can upload onto your server?
Is this just so you can put files onto a server?

Could you explain a bit better what you are trying to do?

P.S. with the right setup, some SQL servers can store files up to a few gigabytes.

yeah, i wanted to know if there's a script (already made would be better), that let's you specify a url to an file (exe, rar, zip, etc).


I open the script and in the upload form i select "Remote", then i enter
So, the script "gets" that file to the current directory where it's working and displays a message "File Uploaded".

I believe you are just looking for an INPUT field of the TYPE="FILE", the METHOD="POST" and the ENCTYPE="MULTIPART/FORM-DATA".

but i want the option so that files can be uploaded locally adn remotely (by just pasting the url of the file). the main thing is to "dowload" the file from a web to mine.

get it ?

In the case of a URL you will need to have a text box which to enter the URL in. Once submitted, you will read that URL and use fopen() to read the file.
