Hello,

the code below is fetching a csv file for me from an FTP account. it works fine except that it totally ignores where i want the csv file to be saved.

where is says 'YOUR FOLDER PATH' i've been putting in here C:inetpub\wwwroot\mydomain\temp

but instead of putting it in the /temp dir it just dropps the csv file in the same dir as from where the script is run from which is a completly different dir.

any ideas?

thanks

zac


<?php
                // define some variables
        $folder_path = "YOUR FOLDER PATH"; 
        $local_file = "the_file.csv";
        $server_file = "the_file.csv";
        
        //-- Connection Settings
        $ftp_server = "IP ADDRESS"; // Address of FTP server.
        $ftp_user_name = "USERNAME"; // Username
        $ftp_user_pass = "PASSWORD"; // Password
        #$destination_file = "FILEPATH"; 
        
        // set up basic connection
        $conn_id = ftp_connect($ftp_server);
        
        // login with username and password
        $login_result = ftp_login($conn_id, $ftp_user_name, $ftp_user_pass);
        
        // try to download $server_file and save to $local_file
        if (ftp_get($conn_id, $local_file, $server_file, FTP_BINARY)) {
            echo "Successfully written to $local_file\n";
        } else {
            echo "There was a problem\n";
        }
        
        // close the connection
        ftp_close($conn_id);
?>
