Mass FTP Software
Posted 15 September 2006 - 09:59 PM
I'm looking for an FTP script/software that can:
- Store multiple connection strings, usernames, passwords for the server.
- Update by schedule or demand.
- Moves file/folders over by the above protocol.
Basically the problem is I have about 70 sites I get to update about every 1-2 weeks and I get to update them all one at a time once the files are in place. It would be great to take the time to configure a piece of software to go down the list of my connections and transfer everything from one to the next. I thought about just writing something in PHP but I don't want to mess around with server timeouts, upload status, etc but then again, I'm not totally opposed to it if it works. Whatever, anyone know of something that might do this?

I use FlashFXP currently which is pretty sweet when it comes to the basics and even so far as management but as far as mass publishing it's kind of a miss here. I'll check out the feature list of those pieces of software so thank you.
If anyone has any other ideas of a mass publishing ftp that would be great to let me know. Thanks again!

Just keep it simple: an array of connections, one with source directories, one with targets. No need for numerous options or a graphical interface.
'Resistance is futile': just overwrite everything, keep full copies on the client.

Please, take the time and do some research and find out how much it would have cost you to get your help from a decent paid-for source. A "roll-of-the-dice" freelancer will charge you $5-$15/hr. A decent entry level freelancer will charge you around $15-30/hr. A professional will charge you anywhere from $50-$100/hr. An agency will charge anywhere from $100-$250/hr. Think about all this when soliciting for help here. Think about how much money you are making from the work you are asking for help on. No, we do not expect you to pay for the help given here, but donating a few bucks is a fraction of the cost of what you would have paid, shows your appreciation, helps motivate people to keep offering help without the pricetag, and helps make this a higher quality free-help community
