Transfer text file from 1 server to another in PHP

I am a junior PHP developer working with a junior .asp developer.

On the .asp project he needs to get a .txt file from his server and put it into a folder within my server.

This will need to happen every 30 minutes or so, which will be done with a cron job id imagine.

So what is the best way to get a file from .asp project to my .php. Should i created a route and he submits a form to send the file to my server. Then i store it?

Thing is, this needs to be done every 30 minutes so its not like he make a front-end form and have it clicked every so often.

Can anyone give me some advise please?

You can use the scp command to acheive this and scheduel it in cron job

scp -i /path/to/ssh_identity_file /some/local/file.txt [email protected]:/some/remote/location

if you need to authenticate using the password try sshpass

sshpass -p "password" scp /some/local/file.txt [email protected]:/some/remote/location

In case you need to do this via a php script check this Php Library phpseclib

Hope this will help.

You can use file_get_contents() and file_put_contents();

$filedata = file_get_contents('');
file_put_contents('any.txt', $filedata);
