Note the rsync option:

       This  option  is  related  to  the --include option, but it specifies
a FILE that contains include patterns (one per line).  Blank
       lines in the file and lines starting with ';' or '#' are ignored.  If
FILE is -, the list will be read from standard input.

So, from a PhpScript, you manage the contents of "FILE" and then launch
rsync with the appropriate additional options.

Subject: Re: [PHP-DB] Copying an image from one server to another

Initially I could not find much on SCP and rsynch is about synchronising 
folders, but that is only part of the problem.  I don't want files in 
the target location that are not referenced from the target database.  I 
hold references like this


then I parse it out into the img array. 

So I want to do it from php programming and am on a shared server.  I 
may have access to the terminal for linux/unix but I am not too strong 
in that area.  So am I wrong to be still thinking of cURL?
