I'm trying to write an application which uses a lot of storage, as such I want to offload the storage onto a different controller (such as a QNAP or NAS). I want to secure the access between the 2 (as its going over the internet), so looking at using FTPES, however cant find any examples of using FTPES with PHP.
I know I can use FTPS (which is basically FTP over SSH), however the storage controller Im looking at using (QNAP, or D-Link) only allows SSH on the main admin account, so have access to everything and I cant limit the access, which obviously isnt great. I was thinking of using HTTPS requests as a PHP web service, but this seems a bit overkill if I can use FTPES.
Does anyone have any experience of using FTPES with PHP, or any examples?
