    I'm not sure I quite understand the FTP part of your question, but for backups a great tool is rsync, which can conveniently be used from Perl with File::Rsync.
      sorry its calling resurcive uploading....
      i have already this

      #!/usr/bin/perl> use Net::FTP; $ftp = Net::FTP->new("", Debug => 0); if ($ftp == undef) { die ("Couldn't open ftp connection, $@\n"); } $ftp->login('test','test'); $ftp->binary; for(<*.*>) { $ftp->put($_); } $ftp->quit;
      That is uploading everything in my current directory !
      just the files ... but if there is also directory's in that
      directory. it is doing nothing. and i want do some logging also any idea ....

    sitecopy is a convenient way to mirror.
    If you want to try thirdparty software give a try.
    They seem to be down, currently, but I haven't heard of any stop of this
    project, and unfortunately freshmeat has an mysql-error, right now. But it *is* a
    good tool: Install, configure, and forget it :)


    there are no silly questions

    I'm a little confused as to exactly what you wish to do. The way I read it, you want to find all files and subs on the machine where Perl is running and FTP them to someplace else.

    this node provides a good code snippet for how to accomplish the FTP portion.

    To gather all file and sub names, see recurse directories and sub-directories

Hiya, link guy, where'ja wannit? Huh, okey.

    I confess I don't really understand these topics, but I'm reliably informed in the CB that this thread is related to the present one, and may be worth a look.
