I have two servers, 1 to handle pageloading and another unmetered fileserver to handle file loading.
At server1 I have a form that let the user upload a file to the server. Is there a way to make this upload go to directly to server2 instead?
 - I chould upload it to server1 and ftp it to server2, but that will consume alot of bandwidth.

also, there must not be placed any php files on the fileserver.

Hm I think the only solution in this case is to FTP it to the second server.
If they're directly connected, no problem. If you're paying for bandwidth between them, it's less cool, but it's a one-time upload, I think your big traffic will be when users will download the files !

If you need an example on how to upload it with php & ftp, please let us know

I just found out that I have Private VLAN between the servers, so I can just use FTP :)
Thanks for your help
