Downloading PHP from my FTP client

(that feels better - I am having a REALLY bad day today)

Can anyone shed some light on the fact that when I try to download a PHP file from my FTP the PHP file is empty?

When I view it on the FTP server it is 11kb (for example) but when I download it to my computer it is 0kb.

This is happening to ALL the PHP docs I try to download.

You should use a stand alone FTP Client. I use smart FTP wise is another good one. And a free one that I use is ALFTP

FTP Clients
I realize this is an older post, but I want to provide additional information.

If you want the best, do what Neo suggested and go to and try WS_FTP Pro. It has served me well since at least 1999.

Like free or open source (or you're just cheap)? Try FileZilla by visiting

Sure there are many other FTP applications out there, but I invested in the best before open source was big. I run both simultaneously today because of complimenting feature sets. Neither is perfect, but together they rock!

I have since changed to using FileZilla and I LOVE it.
And yes, I am cheap.
