    looking to get an upload feature written in to an existing site that allows a .bz2 file upload only, this file is then copied to a directory on the web server, and its extracted and is uploaded to 2 different ftp servers simultaneously all the while leaving an original copy of the .bz2 intact in the directory it was first uploaded to.

    it would need to incorporate a 'choose file' and 'upload from url' inputs.

    let me get some estimates please.

    thanks.

    Checkout http://swfupload.org/ if you're interested in a progress bar you can tie in with PHP pretty easily

    You should probably definitely look into using SFTP instead of just FTP. FTP is just like telnet and not very secure.

    its starting to be a pain. this guy kind of doesnt listen to what im asking for.

    1st. gives me a simple flash upload to a directory on the webserver, all the wihle the description i had was archive to web server, and then extract contents and upload contents to 2 ftp servers.

    and now he cant connect to the ftp servers through the script for some reason.... :sad2:
