I take look at source code of PHP 4.3.1, there are two functions ftp_close and ftp_quit in ftp.c, But the PHP funcions ftp_close and ftp_quit in php_ftp.c didn't invoke these real function. What happens?

Not enough information why this is a problem.
(if you know how PHP works, you'd know that the ftp_quit() is called in the resource destructor code)

Sorry, Let me explain the problem further.

Following is my php script and ftp log. You can see there is not QUIT command in ftp log. As you know, the ftp_quit is alais of ftp_close in PHP, but I found two C function in ftp.c. The C function ftp_quit send QUIT to ftp server, but ftp_close didn't. I think this is the problem. In the FTP protocol, a client should send QUIT before disconnect the connection. I think the PHP ftp function should support that. Thnaks.
$host = "";
$port = 21;
$user = "test";
$pass = "test";
$passive = FALSE;
$folder_path = "";
$file_path = "";

$ftp_conn = @ftp_connect($host, $port);
if ($ftp_conn === FALSE)
	echo "Can't connect with server: " . $host . "\n";
if (@ftp_login($ftp_conn, $user, $pass) === FALSE)
	echo "User name  or password is wrong \n";
