copy files from one server to another using php


I have two similar websites.Some of the content are same in both sites.I have some files in specific folder in one website say A.I want to copy some specific files from Website A to website B.

I have tried ftp functions in php but not working.


// define some variable

$local_file = 'eg.html';

$server_file = '';

// set up basic connection

$conn_id = ftp_connect("");

// login with username and password

$login_result = ftp_login($conn_id, 'username', 'password');

echo is_array(ftp_nlist($conn_id, ".")) ? 'Connected!' : 'not Connected! :(';

ftp_pasv($conn_id, true);

// try to download $server_file and save to $local_file

if (ftp_get($conn_id, $local_file, $server_file, FTP_BINARY)) {

    echo "Successfully written to $local_file\n";

} else {

    echo "There was a problem\n";

// close the connection



I get connected message but display "There was a problem".Pls can anyone try this..

Regards, Rekha




change last part whereftp_get toftp_put

if (ftp_put($conn_id, $local_file, $server_file, FTP_BINARY)) {

    echo "Successfully written to $local_file\n";

} else {

    echo "There was a problem\n";




$connection = ssh2_connect('IP address', Port_No);
ssh2_auth_password($connection, 'server_username', 'server_password');
ssh2_scp_send($connection,'File_Path','Destination_Path', 0644);
