PHP provides support for the HTTP PUT method used by some clients to store files on a server. PUT requests are much simpler than a file upload using POST requests and they look something like this:
PUT /path/filename.html HTTP/1.1
Into your PHP code you would then do something like this:
<?php /* PUT data comes in on the stdin stream */ $putdata = fopen("php://input", "r"); /* Open a file for writing */ $fp = fopen("putfile.ext", "w"); /* Read the data 1 KB at a time and write to the file */ while ($data = fread($putdata, 1024)) fwrite($fp, $data); /* Close the streams */ fclose($fp); fclose($putdata); ?>
