Trying with WINSCP

Post by xavier »

Hi,
I have been trying upload files with Winscp and software works well. The problem appears with scripts. Cumulus can not update files.
I have write script in external programs but it doesn't work. I can upload only in a manual way. Could anyone help me, please?
Thanks
Xavier

PS I am not able to attach bat file, so I type it here:
"winscp.com/script=C:\cumulus\sftp-cmds.txt"

Your file had your password in it. I deleted it, here are the contents with the password redacted:

option batch abort
option confirm off
open jfranch:xxxxxxxxx@ftp.xtec.cat
put "C:\Cumulus\web\index.txt"/html
exit

What is the file index.txt? Shouldn't it be index.htm?

OK Steve, thanks to hide my password, and to advice me about index.txt.
I have changed this right now, but it doesn't upload anything. What are I doing wrong?

thanks

I'm afraid I don't know, I've never used WinSCP. I didn't write the wiki entry explaining how to use it. Presumably Cumulus is creating the index.htm file?

I'll see if I can add FTP over SSL/TLS to Cumulus, it may not be difficult. I can't test it myself, though, as my hosting doesn't do FTPS.

OK Steve! I think things will be easier if you can modify Cumulus in order to add FTP over TLS. I am waiting for this! While it arrive I will trying with WinSCP.

thanks a lot!

Having looked at the component I use for FTP, it seems I would have to completely rewrite all of the ftp code in Cumulus in order to support FTPS. So I'm afraid that's unlikely to happen in the near future, sorry.

OK! Steve. Don't worry. I understand everybody is very very busy. Me too. Fortunately, I am happy because of all is working fine. Cumulus active each 15 minutes batch files I wrote and update my webpage trough WINSCP. Now I am translating to catalan some pages.
I will be waiting for next updates of Cumulus, whenever you can.

Ciao

xavier, I have had problems in the past with CumulusMX and ftp uploads though found the fix was to enable "FTP rename"
