PHP: Copy image from remote server to local server

You might want to copy an image (or any other file) with PHP from a remote location to your local server and store it in a specific location. You can use the PHP file_get_contents() function to achieve this. Here is a code sample:

$remoteimage = "http://domain.com/path/to/remote/image.jpg";
$localimage = "/home/domain/httpdocs/path/to/my/image.jpg";

if ($content = file_get_contents($remoteimage)) {
    if (!empty($content)) {
        $fp = fopen($localimage, "w");
        fwrite($fp, $content);
        fclose($fp);
    }
}
