Since I work with the XDA server, I often have to work on stuff in the XDA server, finish it and upload it to my host. Now Goo.im conveniently offers a sftp access, that makes everything very easy. A simple scp command can transfer the file (already descibed elsewhere on my blog). However when it comes to transferring the files via simple ftp, things are a bit different. You need a bash scrip to do it.
I’ve used this script from Ubuntuforums to suit my needs perfectly:
# The next 9 lines are lifted from mickwombat's script #!/bin/sh USERNAME="[email protected]" PASSWORD="myftppassword" SERVER="ftp.droidzone.in" # Directory where file is located DIR=$2 # Filename of backup file to be transfered FILE=$1 # login to ftp server and transfer file curl -T $FILE -u $USERNAME:$PASSWORD $SERVER/$DIR/
This very neatly takes the file specified in the first argument, and transfers it to ftp.droidzone.in/dir where dir is the specified directory.
