  • Last Updated : 20 May, 2019

The ftp_get_option() function is an inbuilt function in PHP which is used to get runtime option for existing FTP Connection.

Syntax:

ftp_get_option( $ftp_connection, $option )

Parameter: This function accepts two parameters as mentioned above and described below:

  • $ftp_connection: It is required parameter. It specifies the already existing FTP connection.
  • $option: It is required parameter. It specifies the runtime option to return for existing FTP Connection.
    Possible options are
    • FTP_TIMEOUT_SEC: return time out used for the network.
    • FTP_AUTOSEEK: Returns if this option is on else returns FALSE.

Return Value: It returns the value of the option on success and False if the option is not supported.



Note:

  • This function is available for PHP 4.2.0 and newer version.
  • The following examples cannot be run on online IDE. So try to run in some PHP hosting server or localhost with proper ftp server name.

Example:




<?php
  
// Connect to FTP server
  
// Use a correct ftp server
$ftp_server = "localhost";
  
// Use correct ftp username
$ftp_username="username";
  
// Use correct ftp password corresponding
// to the ftp username
$ftp_userpass="password";
  
   
// Establishing ftp connection 
$ftp_connection = ftp_connect($ftp_server)
        or die("Could not connect to $ftp_server");
          
if($ftp_connection) {
    echo "successfully connected to the ftp server!";
      
    // Logging in to established connection with
    // ftp username password
    $login = ftp_login($ftp_connection, $ftp_username, $ftp_userpass);
      
    if($login) {
          
        // Checking whether logged in successfully or not
        echo "<br>logged in successfully!";
          
        // Printing timeout for current ftp connection
        echo ftp_get_option($ftp_connection, FTP_TIMEOUT_SEC) . "<br>";
          
        // Printing whether FTP_AUTOSEEK enabled or not
        echo ftp_get_option($ftp_connection, FTP_AUTOSEEK) . "<br>";
           
    }
    else {
        echo "<br>login failed!";
    }
      
    // Closeing  connection
    if(ftp_close($ftp_connection)) {
        echo "<br>Connection closed Successfully!";
    
}
?>

Output:

successfully connected to the ftp server!
logged in successfully!
90
