nicolab/php-ftp-client

A flexible FTP and SSL-FTP client for PHP. This lib provides helpers easy to use to manage the remote files.

This package is aimed to remain simple and light. It's only a wrapper of the FTP native API of PHP, with some useful helpers. If you want to customize some methods, you can do this by inheriting one of the 3 classes of the package.

Install

  • Use composer: require nicolab/php-ftp-client

  • Or use GIT clone command: git clone git@github.com:Nicolab/php-ftp-client.git

  • Or download the library, configure your autoloader or include the 3 files of php-ftp-client/src/FtpClient directory.

Getting Started

Connect to a server FTP :

$ftp = new \FtpClient\FtpClient();
$ftp->connect($host);
$ftp->login($login, $password);

OR

Connect to a server FTP via SSL (on port 990 or another port) :

$ftp = new \FtpClient\FtpClient();
$ftp->connect($host, true, 990);
$ftp->login($login, $password);

Note: The connection is implicitly closed at the end of script execution (when the object is destroyed). Therefore it is unnecessary to call $ftp->close(), except for an explicit re-connection.

Usage

Upload all files and all directories is easy :

// upload with the BINARY mode
$ftp->putAll($source_directory, $target_directory);

// Is equal to
$ftp->putAll($source_directory, $target_directory, FTP_BINARY);

// or upload with the ASCII mode
$ftp->putAll($source_directory, $target_directory, FTP_ASCII);

Note : FTP_ASCII and FTP_BINARY are predefined PHP internal constants.

Get a directory size :

// size of the current directory
$size = $ftp->dirSize();

// size of a given directory
$size = $ftp->dirSize('/path/of/directory');

Count the items in a directory :

// count in the current directory
$total = $ftp->count();

// count in a given directory
$total = $ftp->count('/path/of/directory');

// count only the "files" in the current directory
$total_file = $ftp->count('.', 'file');

// count only the "files" in a given directory
$total_file = $ftp->count('/path/of/directory', 'file');

// count only the "directories" in a given directory
$total_dir = $ftp->count('/path/of/directory', 'directory');

// count only the "symbolic links" in a given directory
$total_link = $ftp->count('/path/of/directory', 'link');

Detailed list of all files and directories :

// scan the current directory and returns the details of each item
$items = $ftp->scanDir();

// scan the current directory (recursive) and returns the details of each item
var_dump($ftp->scanDir('.', true));

Result:

    array (size=10)
      'permissions' => string 'drwx---r-x' (length=10)
      'number'      => string '3' (length=1)

      'type'        => string 'file' (length=4)

All FTP PHP functions are supported and some improved :

// Requests execution of a command on the FTP server
$ftp->exec($command);

// Turns passive mode on or off
$ftp->pasv(true);

// Set permissions on a file via FTP
$ftp->chmod(0777, 'file.php');

// Removes a directory
$ftp->rmdir('path/of/directory/to/remove');

// Removes a directory (recursive)
$ftp->rmdir('path/of/directory/to/remove', true);

// Creates a directory
$ftp->mkdir('path/of/directory/to/create');

// Creates a directory (recursive),
// creates automaticaly the sub directory if not exist
$ftp->mkdir('path/of/directory/to/create', true);

// and more ...

Get the help information of remote FTP server :

var_dump($ftp->help());

Result :

array (size=6)
  0 => string '214-The following SITE commands are recognized' (length=46)
  1 => string ' ALIAS' (length=6)
  2 => string ' CHMOD' (length=6)
  3 => string ' IDLE' (length=5)
  4 => string ' UTIME' (length=6)
  5 => string '214 Pure-FTPd - http://pureftpd.org/' (length=36)

Note : The result depend of FTP server.

Extend

Create your custom FtpClient.

// MyFtpClient.php

/**
 * My custom FTP Client
 * @inheritDoc
 */
class MyFtpClient extends \FtpClient\FtpClient {

  public function removeByTime($path, $timestamp) {
      // your code here
  }

  public function search($regex) {
      // your code here
  }
}
// example.php
$ftp = new MyFtpClient();
$ftp->connect($host);
$ftp->login($login, $password);

// remove the old files
$ftp->removeByTime('/www/mysite.com/demo', time() - 86400));

// search PNG files
$ftp->search('/(.*)\.png$/i');
