Of Course!  

You can use the fopen functions or curl functions depending on what and how
you want to manage the data once you get it.

Look at the manual in both of these sections and it will show you how to do

BTW: What you are talking about doing is building a caching webserver.
Apache can do this by default, so can many other web server so check
documentaiton there as well.

Subject: [PHP] remote files to servers

Hi all.
i was wondering if it is possible to use PHP to retrieve a remote file and
then write a copy to my own server for quicker access?
