ftp_ssl_connect

Opens an Secure SSL-FTP connection (PHP 4 >= 4.3.0, PHP 5)
resource ftp_ssl_connect ( string host [, int port [, int timeout]] )

ftp_ssl_connect() opens a SSL-FTP connection to the specified host.

Why this function may not exist:

ftp_ssl_connect() is only available if OpenSSL support is enabled into your version of PHP. If it's undefined and you've compiled FTP support then this is why. For Windows you must compile your own PHP binaries to support this function.

Parameters

host

The FTP server address. This parameter shouldn't have any trailing slashes and shouldn't be prefixed with ftp://.

port

This parameter specifies an alternate port to connect to. If it is omitted or set to zero, then the default FTP port, 21, will be used.

timeout

This parameter specifies the timeout for all subsequent network operations. If omitted, the default value is 90 seconds. The timeout can be changed and queried at any time with ftp_set_option() and ftp_get_option().

Return Values

Returns a SSL-FTP stream on success or FALSE on error.

ChangeLog

VersionDescription
5.2.2 The function was changed to return FALSE when it can't use an SSL connection, instead of fallbacking to a non-SSL one as previously.

echo
ftp_pwd($conn_id); // /

// close the ssl connection
