Problem with ftp_connect and gethostbyname on PHP 4

Posted on 2005-05-13

I've got this error message :
Warning: ftp_connect(): php_network_getaddresses: gethostbyname failed in xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Here the code :

// set up basic connection
$ftp_server = "ftp://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx";

$conn_id = ftp_connect($ftp_server) or die("Couldn't connect to $ftp_server"); ;

// login with username and password
$login_result = ftp_login($conn_id, "anonymous", "anonymous@nowhere.com");

// get contents of the current directory
$contents = ftp_nlist($conn_id, "./ss/Parachiot/");

// output $contents

That's ok I've got the answer.

its because we don't need to put ftp:// in $ftp_server.

the good syntax is $ftp_server = "xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx";
