I am wondering about how companies provide access to the same files over FTP and HTTP/HTTPS. What are the different servers involved in setting up such an infrastructure?
I am interested, particularly, about if the metadata of the files on an FTP server changes when the files are mirrored to the HTTP server. For example, let's say that I have two files, both with the same content. Given the potentially various ways one can set up and FTP-to-HTTP infrastructure, what are the differences (if any) in the metadata of the same two files between the FTP server and HTTP server?
