ftp_mdtm -- Returns the last modified time of the given file


int ftp_mdtm ( resource ftp_stream, string remote_file)

ftp_mdtm() checks the last modified time for a file, and returns it as a UNIX timestamp. If an error occurs, or the file does not exist, -1 is returned.

Returns a UNIX timestamp on success, or -1 on error.

Example 1. ftp_mdtm() example


$file = 'somefile.txt';

// connect to the server
$conn_id = ftp_connect($ftp_server);
$login_result = ftp_login($conn_id, $ftp_user_name, $ftp_user_pass);

//  get the last modified time
$buff = ftp_mdtm($conn_id, $file);

if ($buff != -1) {
    // somefile.txt was last modified on: March 26 2003 14:16:41.
    echo "$file was last modified on : " . date ("F d Y H:i:s.", $buff);
} else {
    echo "Couldn't get mdtime";

// close the connection
