some bug

I thinks this line:
if ((empty($this->username) AND empty($this->password)) AND !$login_result)
must be change to this:
if ((!empty($this->username) AND !empty($this->password)) AND !$login_result)

And so about "close()" function:
Don't need "throw new CDbException" beacuse when destroy function and auto call this function, appear throw error message for always.

And so this line must be before of return true:
$this->_active = false;
$this->_connection = null;
$this->_errors = null;

Set properties of components in the code when initializes component

I know for working it, must put config in main/config.php file and set parameters. and so we can use and access it with Yii::app()->ftp.

Now after created, in the action, how can change property of this components to have new instance of it? Or in other words how can set properties of components in the code when initializes component?

  1. Please put @ before all ftp_* functions.
  2. Publish code on github.

Passive mode ?

Useful and easy to use but your forget the param for passive mode

It seems to be useful to add it in the constructor

ftp_pasv($this->_connection, $this->pasv);

Error handling

It's because the way Yii handles warnings. These warnings are generated by php ftp functions, not EFtpComponent. To avoid it either disable warnings in php error handler:


or edit EFtpComponent and put @ before all ftp_* function calls.

Error handling2

The problem, that the program dies at the ftp_mkdir line. I get the php error:

ftp_mkdir() [<a href='function.ftp-mkdir'>function.ftp-mkdir</a>]: Directory already exists

I cant error handle, becouse the program execution stops!

Enclode code in try catch block and check what value returns ftp_mkdir command - if it is zero throw exception.

if ( ! ftp_mkdir(...) )
                        throw new CException('Error info ...', 404);

Error handling


The extension is very straightforward, and easy to use. I am having trouble with errorhandling though. If i perform an illegal command. (for example mkdir directory already exists) the program dies with a php error. If i put the command in a try catch structure i get the same result.

As far as i now, the ftp_mkdir command is not soppoused to couse php error, but return a 0 if the transaction wasnt succesfull.

What am i doing wrong? Has somebody got a solution?
