I had a task to read file from another server. Obvious you would suggest file_get_contents or cURL for same. But those files was not accessible through URL. I have to read it using FTP server credentials, Initially I was trying with ftp_get and some other FTP functions. But it was download all files to my local server.
But finally I got the solution, here its….
<?php $filename = 'ftp://username:password@hostname/files/path/and/name.txt'; $handle = fopen($filename, "r"); $contents = fread($handle, filesize($filename)); fclose($handle); echo $contents; ?>
I hope this would help you….
