Recursive, Incremental FTP
Thursday, April 14, 2011
Looking for a way to transfer an entire website, including subdirectories, from one server to another directly, I found this summary https://stackoverflow.com/questions/113886/how-to-recursively-download-a-folder-via-ftp-on-linux of a great tool: NCFTP.
The client supports recursive “get” and “does the right thing.” It silently handles broken symbolic links, downloads all the files in the source directory including subdirectories, and even better, smartly does an incremental update on repeat saving a lot of time, bandwidth, and tedium.
Great utility that makes systems admin just a little bit easier. From now on, part of the default install.
