Simpler Navigation for Servers and Operating Systems
Completed: a much simpler Servers and Operating Systems section of the Community. We combined many of the older boards, so you won't have to click through so many levels to get at the information you need. Check the consolidated boards here as many sub-forums are now single boards.

Can you ftp file directories

Re: FTP

Not that I'm aware of. But if you zip the directory first, you can get the zip file which when unzipped will create the directory structure.

The closest would be with using the mget command to copy multiple files down at the same time, or use a third party ftp package that supports scripting.

Re: FTP

Hi,

ftp does not support the transfer of a directory. The message will be:
550 blabla: not a plain file.

You would have to write a script to search for all files included in the directory.

Maybe one of these tools, that copy whole sites can do this but I don't know one right now.
