To download a file from an FTPS server in PHP, you can use the ftp_ssl_connect() function to establish an SSL-encrypted connection. Here is an example code snippet to download a file from an FTPS server in PHP:

<?php
// FTP server details
$ftp_server = 'ftp.example.com';
$ftp_user = 'username';
$ftp_pass = 'password';

// File to download
$remote_file = 'file_to_download.txt';
$local_file = 'downloaded_file.txt';

// Connect to FTP server
$ftp_conn = ftp_ssl_connect($ftp_server);
if (!$ftp_conn) {
    die('Could not connect to FTP server');
}

// Login to FTP server
$login = ftp_login($ftp_conn, $ftp_user, $ftp_pass);
if (!$login) {
    die('FTP login failed');
}

// Download file
if (ftp_get($ftp_conn, $local_file, $remote_file, FTP_BINARY)) {
    echo 'File downloaded successfully';
} else {
    echo 'Failed to download file';
}

// Close FTP connection
ftp_close($ftp_conn);
?>


Make sure to replace ftp.example.com, username, password, file_to_download.txt, and downloaded_file.txt with your FTP server details and file names. This code snippet establishes an SSL-encrypted connection to the FTPS server, logs in with the provided credentials, downloads the specified file, and saves it to the local file system.
