RemotePath Property

The current path in the SFTP server.

Object Oriented Interface

public function getRemotePath();
public function setRemotePath($value);

Procedural Interface

ipworkssftp_sftp_get($res, 37 );
ipworkssftp_sftp_set($res, 37, $value );

Default Value



The RemotePath shows the current working directory on the SFTP server. It can also be used to change the working directory by setting it to an absolute directory path, or a relative path with respect to the existing value of RemotePath.

If the first two bytes of the new path are "..", then a change to one level above in the directory tree is performed.

Setting RemotePath causes the class to send the appropriate command to the remote server only if connected.

Example (Changing Directory)

SFTPControl.RemotePath = "/home/user"
