    Cool Simple Upload Form

    Please i need help with an upload form. It is supposed to get input (the url of a file on some other site) from a user then upload the file in the specified url into my own database. Is it possible?

    The steps might be:

    Ask the user for a url in a html form.

    Store that url in a database table

    Use cURL to fetch that data

    then EITHER:

    store the data as a string in your database table

    OR:

    cache the data in a file
    do some post download analysis, and store the extracted data in your database table
