Hello Everyone Cheers

First, I hope this post is in the right place. If not I am sorry. Wink I am desperately trying to learn php "on the fly". I have been searching the internet for the last 4 days on this issue.

Secondly, I am NOT looking for someone to write this script for me. As the title says, I WANT to learn how to do this myself. Rolling Eyes

So, here goes...

Let me start with my basic information:
1. - Windows IIS 7 @ GoDaddy <-- This will not change! So if your ONLY suggestion is, "find a real hosting company", do us all a favor and please move on and do not reply.
2. - PHP 5.2.5 w/ MySQL 5
3. - allow_url_fopen = On
4. - allow_url_include = Off
5. - Directories on the Development are ALL 777 (Read/Write in IIS).

What I am trying to accomplish, I think is simple: I have a Call of Duty 4 Server and FTP site through GameServers.com. I have downloaded and installed Ultrstats 3.16. Everything works great accept when I try to download the games_mp.log from the Game FTP via the admin panel in Ultrastats. I get "could not connect to FTP as User, blah, blah, blah. However, if I copy the URL from the FTP builder in Ultrastats, and paste it into IE/FF's address bar, I automatically and instantly start downloading the .LOG file from my game Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login!

Example: ftp://<username>:<password>@8.12.23.50:21/<userdir>/cod4/Mods/awe4/games_mp.log

I have read numerous posts on this, and either the post went dead, or the problem was solved, but the poster never said how they solved their problem. You've seen it too, "I fixed it! Thanks for the help!", and that is it! GRRRR... That is so aggrevating! Wink

The forums for Ultrastats are in German and broken English, for support, so I thought (probably where I originally went wrong; thinking! Wink ), "If I could write a simple PHP script to open the FTP connection, retrieve the .LOG and save it to my web server, I could CRON the parsing of the file. Just bypass the built in FTP, in Ultrastats all together.

This is proving more troublesome than I thought. When I follow the PHP manual for $ftp_connect():
Code:
<?php


$ftp_server = "8.12.23.50";

// set up a connection or die
$conn_id = ftp_connect($ftp_server) or die("Couldn't connect to $ftp_server");

?>

I get a "500 - Internal server error". So I figured that maybe the server is trying to authenticate the login credentials. So I kept looking and found $ftp_login. If I try to incorporate the $ftp_login:
Code:
<?php

                     
$ftp_server = "8.12.23.50";
$ftp_user = "<username>";
$ftp_pass = "<password>";

// set up a connection or die
$conn_id = ftp_connect($ftp_server) or die("Couldn't connect to $ftp_server");

// try to login
if (@ftp_login($conn_id, $ftp_user, $ftp_pass)) {
    echo "Connected as $ftp_user@$ftp_server\n";
} else {
    echo "Couldn't connect as $ftp_user\n";
}

// close the connection
ftp_close($conn_id); 
?>


Still get the "500 - Internal server error". So I tried to alter the code a bit. This time trying to use the URL that I can paste into IE/FF and have it connect:
Code:
<?php 

// set up basic connection
$ftp_server = "ftp://8.12.23.50/<userdir>/cod4/Mods/awe4/games_mp.log";
$conn_id = ftp_connect($ftp_server);

// check connection
if ((!$conn_id) || (!$login_result)) {
        echo "FTP connection has failed!";
        exit;
    } else {
        echo "Connected to $ftp_server, for user $ftp_user_name";
    } 
?>

This time I get,
"Warning: ftp_connect() [function.ftp-connect]: php_network_getaddresses: getaddrinfo failed: No such host is known. in <absolute useraccount path>\html\websites\dev.170thclan.com\Ultrastats\gamelogs\getlog.php on line 4
FTP connection has failed!"

So I thought the credentials were stopping me again and tried:
Code:
<?php 

// set up basic connection
$ftp_server = "ftp://8.12.23.50/<userdir>/cod4/Mods/awe4/games_mp.log";
$ftp_username = "<username>";
$ftp_password = "<password>";

// set up a connection or die
$conn_id = ftp_connect($ftp_server) or die("Couldn't connect to $ftp_server");

// try to login
if (@ftp_login($conn_id, $ftp_user, $ftp_pass)) {
    echo "Connected as $ftp_user@$ftp_server\n";
} else {
    echo "Couldn't connect as $ftp_user\n";

?>

When I do this, I get
"Warning: ftp_connect() [function.ftp-connect]: php_network_getaddresses: getaddrinfo failed: No such host is known. in <absolute useraccount path>\html\websites\dev.170thclan.com\Ultrastats\gamelogs\getlog.php on line 8
Couldn't connect to Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login!".

I have even tried to make the connection passive, "ftp_pasv($conn_id, true);" , but that doesn't seem to make a difference either. I can see that the connection is where it is failing, but I do not know why! As I don't have acces to the 500 logs, I can't go from there either...

What am I missing/doing wrong? Any help would b most appreciated.

Thanks,
Sven2157

At one time I was trying to get the donations block working on godaddy and ran into issues with it's use of fopen

This was several years ago, but I remember some suggestions of using cURL.

But this is the point where I changed hosting companies, and I have no familiarity with cURL; so maybe at least it gives you another direction to try.. Smile

Thanks for the reply! Wink I have the donations block on the "Live" site and it works great: Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login!. It is on the right side towards the bottom. I have allow_url_fopen = On in my php5.ini. So the fopen is not stopping me...

I am not familair with cURL at all, either. I just don't get why it doesn't connect to the FTP server? Crying or Very sad

If there is a better way, I am all open to suggestions. Basically need to download the Game Log to the correct directory; server to server...???? I would think that would be simple enough???

Let me know how that goes for you Smile

I saw these
Code:
$ftp_server = "ftp://8.12.23.50/<userdir>/cod4/Mods/awe4/games_mp.log";


I'm flying blind here just throwing out suggestions because I have never done anything like this.

This worked 100% for me. So I would ask godaddy about the 500 server error.
Code:


<?php

$ftp_server = 'xx.xxx.xx.xxx';

// set up a connection or die
$conn_id = ftp_connect($ftp_server);

if ($conn_id) {
   echo 'success';
} else {
   echo 'Couldn\'t connect to ' . $ftp_server;
}

ftp_close($conn_id);






$ftp_server = "xx.xxx.xx.xxx";
$ftp_user = "xxxxxx";
$ftp_pass = "xxxxxx";

// set up a connection or die
$conn_id = ftp_connect($ftp_server);
if ($conn_id) {
   echo 'success';
} else {
   echo 'Couldn\'t connect to ' . $ftp_server;
}

// try to login
if (ftp_login($conn_id, $ftp_user, $ftp_pass)) {
   echo 'Connected as ' . $ftp_user . '@' . $ftp_server . "\n";
} else {
   echo 'Couldn\'t connect as ' . $ftp_user . "\n";
}

// close the connection
ftp_close($conn_id);

?>


You should expect an warning like the following if you connect, but do not authenticate properly.

Warning: ftp_login() [function.ftp-login]: Login authentication failed in ...................

Thanks Palbin, I will try this now...

Sorry, I have my email set to receive notifications, but it is apparently slow...

Sven2157

*** EDIT ***
The 500 error still... Evil or Very Mad I have just contacted GoDummy about the logs. I will post back when I hear from them...

In the meantime, thank you for your help thus far! Cheers

Have you tried removing the <> from your inputs?

$ftp_server = "8.12.23.50";
$ftp_user = "<username>";
$ftp_pass = "<password>";

TO

$ftp_server = "8.12.23.50";
$ftp_user = "username";
$ftp_pass = "password";

Thank you for the reply Raven! I have to admit I am a bit honored that you had the time to reply! But, I have to laugh alittle. I just used the <username> to mark place holders, for my actual username and password. To answer your question, though, yes I did it without the '<''>' carrats.

I have GoDaddy trying to fix the issue as I type. Their own coders are having a problem, too. So there is something definately wrong with either, my particular setup, or the machine itself. I would have to say the machine, as I have been experienceing other non-scripting/programming issues. I think my server is dieing!

Makes it REALLY hard to learn something, when I may have done it right several times, over the last 4 days, before asking for assistance! Shocked

Since I have your attention, I would like to say that you have a great group of very knowledgable and helpful people here! I can't wait to start contributing to others, instead of needing others contributing to me! Thank you for your devout generousity and providing an excellent reference/resource to the community, both at home and abroad!

Wave Cheers worship Groovy

Thanks again for the reply, and I will post back as soon as I hear back from GoDaddy.

NP. Yes, the RN Team and outside contributors are some of the top experts in the Community. I am honored that they have chosen to work with this site and this Team. Just as a plug (no shame at all) be sure to consider Raven Web Hosting LLC. It is a very solid hosting environment and is setup for developers as well as novices. In other words you won't find limits for things that you need to get your job done Wink

I am back to report, sorry it took so long, that I haven't made any progress with GoDaddy on this.

I wrote a custom php5.ini file and still have not had any luck. I don't understand what it is I am doing wrong. If they say that it is my script, and that I should seek "professional php developer's opinoins", I do, and they say it is my code...

Where does that leave me?

If anyone has any suggestions for this type of action, I would love to know...

So I will re-ask my question:

I want a script that will go to my gaming server, retrieve a game.log and save it on my webserver.

What would be the best way to do this?

Thanks again guys....

i find for you a code snippit you might want to try out:

Code:


<?php

//This is usefull when you are downloading big files, as it
//will prevent time out of the script :

set_time_limit(0);
ini_set('display_errors',true);//Just in case we get some errors, let us know....

$fp = fopen (dirname(__FILE__) . '/games_mp.log', 'w+');//This is the file where we save the information
$ch = curl_init('http://uffclan.net/fightingmedic/cod4/mods/awe4/games_mp.log');//Here is the file we are downloading
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_TIMEOUT, 50);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_FILE, $fp);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION, true);
curl_exec($ch);
curl_close($ch);
fclose($fp);
?>


Tested on godaddy server and works perfectly

this should do the trick for ftp couse you use ftp protocal to acces:

Code:


$curl = curl_init();
$file = fopen("ls-lR.gz");
curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_URL, "ftp://ftp.sunet.se/ls-lR.gz"); #input
curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_FILE, $file); #output
curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_USERPWD, "$_FTP[username]:$_FTP[password]");
curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);
curl_exec($curl);

This did work perfectly! Thank you! Cool

I am not familiar with cURL though... so I guess that GoDaddy is not the best place to learn some of these php functions... Confused

Perhaps, I will study up a bit on cURL! Wink

Thanks again!
