ftp_put Shows success, but the file is not on the ftp server

I tried to run a php upload script that was the correct answer to one of the questions on this site...  It ran perfectly...  And it said the file was successfully uploaded...   However, when I log in to check that the file was placed on the server, it is not there!  

I manually uploaded the file with FileZilla with no issues...  But, I need this to happen automatically from our server nightly...

Could it be a firewall or server setting?   I have used ftp_get many times on the same server / site...

Again...  I get no errors...  But, it doesn't show up on the remote server...And, I can download files with no issues using ftp_get...

I pasted the sample script in the code section....  Thank you!
<?php
 
$ftp_user_name='USERNAME';
$ftp_user_pass='PASSWORD';
$ftp_server='SERVERNAME';
 
$file = '19276.txt';
$remote_file = '19276.txt';
 
// set up basic connection
if ($conn_id = ftp_connect($ftp_server)){
 
  // login with username and password
  if ($login_result = ftp_login($conn_id, $ftp_user_name, $ftp_user_pass)){
 
    // upload a file
    if (ftp_put($conn_id, $remote_file, $file, FTP_ASCII)) {
      echo "successfully uploaded $file: ".ftp_size ( $conn_id, $remote_file )." bytes\n";
    } else {
      echo "There was a problem while uploading $file\n";
    }
  } else {
    echo "BAD LOGIN";
  }
  // close the connection
  ftp_close($conn_id);
} else {
  echo "NO CONNECTION";
}
?>

I would try BINARY

<?php
// get FTP access parameters
$host = $_POST['host'];
$user = $_POST['user'];
$pass = $_POST['pass'];
$destDir = $_POST['dir'];
$workDir = "/usr/local/temp"; // define this as per local system

// get temporary file name for the uploaded file
$tmpName = basename($_FILES['file']['tmp_name']);

// copy uploaded file into current directory
move_uploaded_file($_FILES['file']['tmp_name'], $workDir."/".$tmpName)
 or die("Cannot move uploaded file to working directory");

// open connection
$conn = ftp_connect($host) or die ("Cannot initiate connection to
 host");

// send access parameters
ftp_login($conn, $user, $pass) or die("Cannot login");

// perform file upload
$upload = ftp_put($conn, $destDir."/".$_FILES['file']['name'],
 $workDir."/".$tmpName, FTP_BINARY);

// check upload status
// display message
if (!$upload) {
  echo "Cannot upload";
} else {
  echo "Upload complete";
}

// close the FTP stream
ftp_close($conn);

// delete local copy of uploaded file
unlink($workDir."/".$tmpName) or die("Cannot delete uploaded
 file from working directory -- manual deletion recommended");
?>

Hi,

Try this rewritten code from the one above. I've re-organized some parts and added passive mode. See the code:

<?php
 
$ftp_user_name='USERNAME';
$ftp_user_pass='PASSWORD';
$ftp_server='SERVERNAME';
 
$file = '19276.txt';
$remote_file = '19276.txt';
 
// set up basic connection
$conn_id = ftp_connect($ftp_server);
$login_result = ftp_login($conn_id, $ftp_user_name, $ftp_user_pass);

if ($conn_id) {
	// passive must be turn on
	ftp_pasv ($conn_id, true );
	
	if ($login_result){ 
    	// upload a file
    	if (ftp_put($conn_id, $remote_file, $file, FTP_ASCII)) {
      		echo "successfully uploaded $file: ".ftp_size ( $conn_id, $remote_file )." bytes\n";
    	} else {
      		echo "There was a problem while uploading $file\n";
    	}
  	} else {
    	echo "BAD LOGIN";
  	}
  	// close the connection
  	ftp_close($conn_id);
} else {
  echo "NO CONNECTION";
}

?>

I recommend you to just enable passive mode in your code and upload the files.

This is the craziest thing I have ever seen!  I've tried all your script...  I get no errors and it prints out...

successfully uploaded /var/www/vhosts/mywebsite.com/httpdocs/import_export/carfax/daily/WWC_dealerlist_11142010.txt: 639952 bytes

Could a firewall be blocking this?   If it was blocking it, wouldn't the login not work?   It it would return an error?

ok...  This is important!!!!    PHP Safe mode will make it think it works when it isn't really uploading...   Our System Admin upgraded the server and forgot to turn safe mode off!!!

Thanks...
