Mirrror Server uploading at once

#1 Post by intellix » 2010-02-09 12:16

Hi... I'm working with a test environment and 3 servers which all have exactly the same files/content etc

Instead of opening 3 tabs per server, copying and pasting paths and uploading all 3 manually... is it not possible to just: Upload all 3 simultaneously, at once, together?

Thanks

Ok yep. I just thought FTP was a command sort of thing so thought it would be as simple as running the FTP command through an array of servers :P But I'm not an application dev.

Am I really the only person who wants this? This is at work where they have multiple servers in case of server failure there are others to pick up and I thought this would have been a really common practise... unless they're doing things differently

There have been similar requests before, but only by a tiny, almost insignificant portion of users. And my time is limited, so I need to focus on the important stuff.

I have been hired over the summer to help a website with IT issues. First task they put me on was to find a better/faster/less hands on way of uploads files to multiple FTP. 24 hours a day the website receives files which must be pushed out to about 20 FTP servers. Originally they have been using Fetch (all the computers are Macs) and they would have to manually push out all of the files. Very slow, time consuming and error prone. I spend about 2 days writing/researching an apple script where you can drag/drop files on an icon it will display a list of servers you want to add to the upload que. Very fast and easy.

Unfortunately my mac computer crashed and now I'm using my PC and filezilla. So now I'm also requesting the filezilla implement an easy way to drag/drop files and upload to multiple servers.

Thanks,

Donald

Donaldpherman,

Mind sharing your AppleScript you described? I am interested in it too.

Thanks!

Tim - any change on your position on this over these last few years?

We have a few clients who'd like to be able to upload to multiple servers in one shot.
