Default FTP functions of PHP

DJ,

So I know that PHP can act like an ftp program. So how about a tut on how to use those functions?

Thanks

This is a thought process for way down the road if this program picks up and is used through out the Virtual Airline community, but I was thinking of using it to do updates and a possible install aspect.

so for example:

Install.php - installs all the files and creates the db.

Updates.php - updates the old files and/or adds the new files to it

This why its easier for the user that dont know a whole lot about computers

Isnt that for like windows based installs, not so much for php or website installs, I could be completely wrong though. I was thinking like SMF has there install.php and when you run it, you go through a series of forms and input your admin u/n and pass, the DB Prefix and database connection info. Then it creates the database and sets up the file structure and deletes the install.php at the end.

Thanks agian
