With my limted knowledge (limited meaning "none") of your setup, I would recommend the first method for speed, ease of implementation, and reliability (what if the FTP server goes down?). If you cannot configure your file system permissions to allow the web server to write to the destination directory, then use the FTP option. Keep in mind that it is *very* slow to initiate an FTP transation, upload the file (to the same machine!) and then close the connection. Copying a file locally will be much faster, and probably more reliable.
Sorry but I didn't know which is the name of the first method I will rephrase which is the best method to upload a file to server ??
this: ////// $result = move_uploaded_file($HTTP_POST_FILES['img_6']["tmp_name"],"dir/filename.jpg") ; $result = $result ? "OK":"NOT OK"; print $result; ////
or ... this: ///// $conn_id = ftp_connect("$ftp_server"); $upload = ftp_put($conn_id, "$destination_file", "$source_file", FTP_BINARY); ftp_quit($conn_id); ////
how depends on the application ?

which is the "best" upload file method ?
file uploads or FTP commands from PHP
Now that's the most open ended question I've read all day. Here, flip a coin. If it falls heads, FTP. If it falls tails, the other one. Even still, I'm not sure I understand the question: File uploads or FTP command from PHP? One of your options is just the question restated...
Regardless and all sarcasm aside, this question depends seriously on the application.
