SCP/SFTP, provided by most SSH implementations is what I use for just about all simple remote file transfer. This is available in any Linux/BSD setup either by default or very easy to setup/install and there are several options for Windows including cygwin which includes a port of the same OpenSSH clients and servers used by most Linux setups. Another ...

I believe that FTP doesn't actually have a recursive delete operation. The options I can think of are as follows: Use the ncftp program. This is another FTP program with additional options. However, I think it just works on the command line and doesn't have a GUI. If you have SSH access to the server then use that instead of FTP and use the rm -r command. ...

You'd need a fully scriptable FTP client to do that, NcFTP, LFTP (not sure if it works on windows), Kermit FTP, would work or CoreFTP as @paulmorriss observed. More info on a similar question over at serverfault which has a few other ideas like using powershell which might interest you.

Amazon IAM ( http://aws.amazon.com/iam/ ) service gives you the ability to create accounts for students with separate password/credentials and with access to only specified AWS resources. You can create one account for all students there, or create a group called "Students" and assign all your students to that group. After doing that you need to specify an ...

FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol. It provides a method for passing bulk data to a server. There are a number of tools available that you can use to perform FTP uploads to your hosting provider. A popular choice is FileZilla - a free open source FTP program which has fairly good documentation and is available across most popular platforms. It's ...

I've just started getting into hosting and am using WHMCS. You can find more info at http://www.whmcs.com/ You can put clients into it, separate by servers, keep track of products/services for each client, custom notes for the client or if they have multiple domains you can write notes for each domain on a client. It can automate a lot of things but If ...

Overwrite permission denied suggests that DreamHost forgot to enable AllowOverwrite on the new server, which means you can't edit existing files, only upload new ones. To fix it yourself, add the following lines to the .htaccess file in your root directory. You'll have to open the existing .htaccess file if there is one, copy the contents to your clipboard, ...

That can be a tough job, especially if there are any dynamic features on the site. Tread carefully! Most of my experience is on Windows, so I'll talk about that platform. My favourite commercial tool for synchronizing files is Beyond Compare 3; I'm using it at work to handle file level synchronization across several different link types. It works fine ...

I found the answer with the SM36_3M.jpg file, you need to make sure the extension is uppercase: http://ercolehome.com/images/products/mirrors/SM36_3M.JPG The way I found this out was by going to here http://ercolehome.com/images/products/mirrors/ You might want to turn off directory listing.

It's not a bad workflow. Instead of using Coda's publish feature I would consider using Git instead. There are many advantages to this. Pushing changes to your server is just as easy. It gives you source control and branching. Coda's publish system could choke with local wordpress versus server updates resulting in overwritten files. In Git you just ...

You can close connection on your server using some commands: netstat + kill netstat -na kill PID tcpkill tcpkill -i eth0 host 10.0.0.1 killcx (http://spamcleaner.org/en/misc/killcx.html) killcx <ip>:<port> tcpdrop command (FreeBSD): tcpdrop myhost.net:2353 example.com:ftp

Plesk is pretty good about setting up the proper security settings between domain accounts and subdomains, including FTP access. Many sites do grant FTP access to 3rd parties that they work with because there's not as much risk with FTP, providing that root access isn't permitted, which can be set in Plesk (as it seems you already have done). I would ...

If you can open access via ssh between your servers, then using rysnc to transfer the data would be much faster than ftp. Rsync automatically transfers data in batches and if you have to run the transfer multiple times, it only has to transfer the data that has changed. Unfortunately, rsync does not work over ftp but this question on serverfault suggests ...

Yes, we had a similar situation and decided to use this http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/w3-total-cache/ w3-total-cache allows you to set a CDN for serving images, as well as Amazon S3 etc the CDN can also be a regular FTP account. We setup assets.example.com pointed some FTP details to it. When a author publishes a post, any attached files are ...

What do the FTP client logs/terminal show in terms of errors? In Filezilla -> View -> Message Log you will see the command/response sequence when your client attempts to login. You should be able to work out where it is going wrong from the codes. EDIT: Wikipedia has a list of the common FTP codes

Firstly, can you upload a unique file to the root dir and then check on the internet that it is there. Just wondering if you have for some reason connected to the wrong area/account. Have done this myself before. Also, can you clear the whole directory and then upload one of the "non-working" files and test? Or create a sub directory and upload to that, ...

You could use an app like WebDrive, which mounts remote FTP drives as if they were local drives (called a 'virtual drive'), then simply drag and drop the files from one virtual drive to the other on your own machine. How it works Download WebDrive here. (Mac or Windows, free 20-day trial) Put in the FTP details for your 'http://abc.com' server to create ...

You could use an FTP program like Filezilla to connect via SFTP if a more secure connection is required. I use justhost.com and find FTP to be adequate. Regarding the test site, I usually use the root and secure it via htpassword if it's not supposed to be live yet, otherwise I use a subdomain similarly secured with htpassword.

This FAQ relates to BlueHost but it should also apply to other cPanel .nstallations. It looks to me, and this matches my memory, that the FTP is created along with the addon domain. Quoting from siteground: Step 1: To access the Addon Domains tool, click on the corresponding icon located on the main screen of your cPanel interface. Step 2: Enter the name ...

That's how file permissions work. If you want a user/group to have access to a file, then they need the permission to do it. If you don't want your PHP/Apache user to have access to that file, then you can't use PHP to do the enabling/disabling. You could, however, create a separate user to run PHP as for this admin panel. This way the PHP admin panel is ...

This is something that you may find goes faster overnight when Internet traffic is lower. This should make your data transfer speeds faster then during the especially during peak hours. If the bottleneck is your own Internet connection then opening up multiple connections probably won't help you as downloading multiple files as once just splits the available ...

Well, since this is quite a mystery, the first step to getting better bandwidth is finding out exactly where the bottleneck is. Using Network-Tools.com, you can Trace Route and find out what is causing the problem. If the bottleneck is around your ISP or earlier, then there isn't anything you can do about it. If it is at your server, then look at closing ...

If you can access the site via http, use this script (upload it to your server). It searches for commonly used patterns of the "bad guys" and prints some info in which files which malware code has been found. If you are not able to do that directly on your hosting account, download the whole stuff and use a local webserver to execute the script. I already ...

If somebody can put content onto a subdomain, they can read and modify any cookies of visitors that are set to the root domain. They could damage your reputation by posting items at that subdomain that you would not approve of, but which would look like they came from you. Most of the consequences of a Cross Site Scripting (XSS) vulnerability are ...

There's a chance the would get a blank page if they visit while the transfer is in progress. If the transfer hangs or there's a connection problem while uploading the new file. I've seen cases while uploading a CSS file, refreshing the page no CSS rendered since the file didn't fully upload or I refreshed just as the file was being replaced with the newly ...

Domain does not come with attached Apache server as you think. Domain name has Name Servers which actually point to the location of your server. To change the domain name from one hosting to another, simply change the nameserver of the domain to the new hosting. This either you can do it on your own from Domain Control Panel or get the customer-support ...

From my experience, wget is the ideal tool for your task. You can tweak it hundreds of ways to download exactly what you need in just the way you need it. You can even download to your new server the entire website with one single command. Wget also has features to efficiently try again if it was unsuccessful or if the file was only partially completely ...
