when opening a file via ftp as an array 


it returns an error:

500 'SIZE filename.ext': command not understood and is running a Solaris default ftp daemon.

Looking at the latest version 5.1-latest, (I'm assuming that it is using ftp_fopen_wrapper.c):

ftp_fopen_wrapper.c,v 2005/11/22 03:01:39
line 450:
        /* find out the size of the file (verifying it exists) */
        php_stream_printf(stream TSRMLS_CC, "SIZE %s\r\n", resource->path);

Is there a reason that you are using a non-standard command SIZE for verifying existance of the file?

Reproduce code:

Expected result:
No error message when doing fopen

Actual result:
Warning: fopen('') [function.fopen]: failed to open stream: FTP server reports 500 'SIZE filename.ext': command not understood. in /patrh/to/htdocs/filename.php on line 3

"Is there a reason that you are using a non-standard command SIZE for verifying existance of the file?"

There propably is and this has worked fine since PHP 4. 
Get a working FTP server.

Wouldn't it be better to do a 

ls filename.ext

If the file does not exist, it will return 

200 PORT command successful.
550 filename.ext: No such file or directory.

Just providing some positive creative feedback for the wrapper for future improvements. You should have an alternate method if it fails. 

Command SIZE is not a standard for FTP ( states you are refencing which shows SIZE is invalid) .

BTW: Since ftp server is running the most current version (Solaris 5.10 ftp daemon), I shouldn't have to be limited to  specific ftp server daemons for the wrapper to work.
