Example 1:




<?php
   
// Connect to FTP server
$ftp_server = "localhost";
   
// Use correct ftp username
$ftp_username="user";
   
// Use correct ftp password corresponding
// to the ftp username
$ftp_userpass="user";
   
// File name or path to upload to ftp server
$file = "filetoupload.txt";
    
// 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);
       
    // Checking whether logged in successfully or not
    if($login) {
        echo "<br>logged in successfully!";
           
        if (ftp_put($ftp_connection,
                "uploadedfile_name_in_server.txt", $file, FTP_ASCII))
        {
          echo "<br>Uploaded successful $file.";
        }
        else {
          echo "<br>Error while uploading $file.";
        }
            
    }
    else {
        echo "<br>login failed!";
    }
   
    // Closeing the  connection
    if(ftp_close($ftp_connection)) {
        echo "<br>Connection closed Successfully!";
    
}
?>

Output:

logged in successfully!
Uploaded successful filetoupload.txt.

<?php
  
// Connect to FTP server
  
// Server name
$ftp_server = "localhost";
  
// Use correct ftp username
$ftp_username="user";
  
// Use correct ftp password corresponding
// to the ftp username
$ftp_userpass="user";
  
// File name or path to upload to ftp server
$file = "filetoupload.txt";
   
// Establishing ftp connection 
$ftp_connection = ftp_connect($ftp_server, 21) 
    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!";
          
        if (ftp_put($ftp_connection
            "uploadedfile_name_in_server.txt", $file, FTP_ASCII)) 
        {
          echo "<br>Uploaded successful $file.";
        }
        else {
          echo "<br>Error while uploading $file.";
        }
    }
    else {
        echo "<br>login failed!";
    }
      
    // Echo ftp_get_option($ftp_connection, 1);
    // Closeing  connection
    if(ftp_close($ftp_connection)) {
        echo "<br>Connection closed Successfully!";
