Is it possible to upload a file to the FTP server using PHP script while the same script is downloading the meant file from somewhere else? So at the time script is downloading it should upload the file in real-time.

    Easy as cake, in theory. First, see FTP function here: Then we use FOPEN wrappers ( ) to open the file we want to read, and send it over.

    To modify the example:

    // open some file for reading
    $file = 'somefile.txt';
    $fp = fopen('' . $file, 'r');
    // set up basic connection
    $conn_id = ftp_connect($ftp_server);
    // login with username and password
    $login_result = ftp_login($conn_id, $ftp_user_name, $ftp_user_pass);
    // try to upload $file
    if (ftp_fput($conn_id, $file, $fp, FTP_ASCII)) {
        echo "Successfully uploaded $file
    } else {
        echo "There was a problem while uploading $file
    // close the connection and the file handler

    Oh, and you might want non-blocking sometimes:

    PHP's built-in FTP extension can upload and download files in an asynchronous manner.

    However it sounds like you're talking about using this as a method to transfer a file between two different FTP connections without downloading the whole thing first. I'm not sure if these functions support that. In fact, I'd expect otherwise -- chances are that the upload could reach the end of the file while the download is going, and simply assume that it's hit the end and complete itself.

    There are some comments on the upload manual link that suggest that you can trick some servers into performing a direct connection using passive mode, but I'd take that with a grain of salt.

    You might have some luck using the FTP stream wrappers. You could open up two FTP wrappers as file handles, then use fread to retrieve chunks of a specific size from one side and fwrite to write them to the other side. Keep in mind that you'd need to do this in a loop, so it can't be done in the background like the FTP extension's methods. It's also likely to be slow.

    PHP can deal with the ftp protocol, here is an example from the php manual.

    PHP supports process forking, you may check pnctl.
