Post a file to a different location than requesting server
Posted on 2012-08-26
We are using a third party to store and stream uploaded audio files. Our website has a simple html form on it to originally upload the audio file to the third party via the API of the third party.
My bossman has an issue that the uploaded files, while correctly ending up in the server of the third party, use the bandwidth of our server (like our site is being used as a proxy server). He wants it to go right from the user to the thirdparty via post, and not create all that bandwidth usage on our server.
My general question, is that even technically allowed with $_FILE, or another way, if the user is starting from our site?
