I hope you're doing well. I'm relatively new to PHP and I'm currently working on a project that involves FTP connections. While exploring the FTP functionality in PHP, I came across the `ftp_connect()` function. I'm having a bit of trouble understanding how this function works and what it does.
I have a basic idea that `ftp_connect()` is used to establish a connection to an FTP server, but I would really appreciate it if someone could provide me with a clearer explanation. It would be great if you could also provide an example of how to use this function in PHP.
I'm looking forward to your responses! Thank you in advance for your help.
