lftp is required.
The command is:
nohup lftp -e 'mirror -R /var/www/virtual/htdocs/kernels /kernel/htdocs' -u username,password ftp2.mydomain.in
The nohup is added to prevent disconnections until the process is completed.
-R indicates reverse transfer (from local to remote)
Normal lftp syntax (Manual method):
lftp -u username,password ftp.mydomain.in
Now you can use various commands like:
ls – list directory
rm – delete files
rm -r recursive delete a directory
You may wish to set certain options in the lftp config file at ~/.lftp/rc:
set ftp:ssl-allow 0 set ssl:verify-certificate no set ftp:list-options -a debug 3
