ftp_site() does only reply false/true, but not what it gets from server. Also, ftp_raw() function does not exist. So, is any way to get some information from ftp server if i type some raw commands?

ftp_raw() is added, but only in CVS (see and the documentation for ftp_site() says this:

bool ftp_site ( resource ftp_stream, string cmd)

ftp_site() sends the command specified by cmd to the FTP server. SITE commands are not standardized, and vary from server to server. They are useful for handling such things as file permissions and group membership.

Returns TRUE on success or FALSE on failure. 

Not a bug -> bogus

Then again, my question was: how can get output from raw commands or how can i execute/run raw commands? There isnt any function what does the job :(

*UN*officially, it will *PROBABLY* work to take the ext/ftp directory from a PHP5 snapshot ( and copy it over the ext/ftp directory in your PHP4.3 tarball.

Do this *AT YOUR OWN RISK*.  Code in PHP5 has not passed quality assurance standards and mixing code between branches is neither tested nor officially supported.  There are many extensions in which this will certainly not work, but for the ftp extension you will probably be okay.
