Automatic ftp uploads


B

Bob H

I am looking for a FTP program which will automatically upload files
from my nas box to my website at a certain time each day.

I didn't realize how many ftp programs there are and as yet I haven't
come across one which will do what I want.

For normal, non automated, uploads , I use Filezilla, but it doesn't see
my nas box and neither does it do automated uploads.

I'd do this using a (paid for, but invaluable) program called AJC Sync.
It sync folders and files between the PC and FTP servers. Having set up
a project and tested it manually, I'd get AJC Sync to generate a command
line that runs the sync job. I'd plug that command line into Windows
Task Scheduler. That sounds complicated but there are lots of useful
features.

After my text editor, AJC Sync is the most useful program I've ever
bought. And when they describe it as "robust", they mean it. I have no
connection, I'm just a very satisfied user.
For normal, non automated, uploads , I use Filezilla, but it doesn't

If FileZilla doesn't see the NAS box I think there's a fundamental
problem that needs addressing before you go any further.

Thanks for the info on AJC Sync, I'll give it a shot.

As someone else said, if Filezilla can't see your NAS, you've got that
problem to fix first.

I would try WPUT for this.

http://wput.sourceforge.net/

It's a command-line FTP uploader. I haven't used it, but I have used
its counterpart WGET quite a lot, and it works very well. Write a
script that does what you want, and use Windows task scheduler to make
it happen when you want.

For that matter, Windows built-in FTP client might even be good enough.
For normal, non automated, uploads , I use Filezilla, but it

No, it can't be automated in that way, but there's no reason Filezilla
shouldn't make a connection to any standard FTP server.

A simple batch file as shown below will do the job. First it creates a
file named ftp.txt with a series of ftp commands in it. Then it uses the
built-in Windows FTP.exe utility to process the ftp commands and upload
the file. When it's done, it deletes the ftp.txt file to clean up after
itself.

Copy the lines below into a file and name it something like
'ftpupload.cmd', changing the lines to fit the name of the file you're
trying to upload, and your ftp site specifics (url, username, and password).

--------------------
@echo off
echo open ftp.myftpsite.com > ftp.txt
echo user myusername mypassword >> ftp.txt
echo binary >> ftp.txt
echo send "d:\path\filename.ext" >> ftp.txt
echo bye >> ftp.txt
ftp -n -s:ftp.txt
del ftp.txt

You could try using webdrive, which 'mounts' an FTP site (etc) as a
drive, and then use any file-aware program or utility. I've done this
with Robocopy (very powerful, but only really for people comfortable
with complex command-line utilities).
