Newbie asking for help: command line transfer

#1 Post by vorticity » 2020-09-15 05:40

Hi,

I am a weather forecaster und want to update regularly data to my website vorticity.de

How can I create a script that will be started regularly by crontab to transfer .jpg .png .gif files via ftps to my server?

Any help highly appreciated, Thanks, Bernd.

If you are using Linux or similar *NIX OS, good scriptable command line FTPS clients like lftp should be readily available.
