If you suply only a filename to the second parameter of function the ftp_get will open a pointer to the local file creating it and write to it.It's ok if your server dont execute for to mutch time and you dont get too many files but if you do it too many times the pointers created by ftp_get will not be closed and will end your opened files capacity at your server making it to do not open any more files until you restart it.
