This is my script. As you can see it executes only 1 command (cd /) after connecting to a remote FTP server. It's very simple... but it doesn't work and give me "Invalid command".
I don't understand why.
#!/bin/bash HOST=xxx #This is the FTP servers host or IP address. USER=xxx #This is the FTP user that has access to the server. PASS=xxx #This is the password for the FTP user. # Call 1. Uses the ftp command with the -inv switches. #-i turns off interactive prompting. #-n Restrains FTP from attempting the auto-login feature. #-v enables verbose and progress. ftp -inv $HOST << EOF # Call 2. Here the login credentials are supplied by calling the variables. user $USER $PASS pass # Call 3. I change to the directory where I want to put or get cd / # Call4. Here I will tell FTP to put or get the file. #put... # End FTP Connection bye EOF
This is the output:
