A question for you guys.
I am connecting to an FTP server through php. Using ftp_nlist() I get a list of folders and files from the current directory and depending on the server I get a different style of naming back.
On my laptop I am running the FTP server that came with Xampp (filezilla) and it shows me folder/file names (from now folder names) like so (I don't get the full tree straight away, but I wrote it down to illustrate the different levels):
On my desktop I use the same code but I connect to a different host, namely my hosting provider, which runs some linux web server and I get this for the same folders and files:
I depend quite a bit on the way the names are shown and I want to know why the nlist is different.
Of course a solution could be that I check if there is a '/' in the name and then explode on it and then use the highest key value. But I want to force one of both ways onto the connection.
Why and how?
