FTP Features
« on: March 13, 2009, 10:57:50 PM »
I am wondering if you have any plans for enhancing the ftp features.  I would like to use BA to post website releases.  We host websites and would like to post files for each client.  Here is the setup and tell me if this would ever be possible.  All the files are in version control...including the BA files.

x:\ProjectX\Release - holds all the the website files...many directories and many files.
x:\clients\ABC - holds the clients settings and customize graphics.

I know I could create 1 project with 1 project item per client.

BA needs to:
- delete all files & folders from current site
- upload x:\ProjectX\Release - files with complete directory structure.
- upload x:\clients\ABC - files with complete directory structure.

From my testing, the current version will not handle the directory structures?  All files go into the same folder.

Thanks for the help!

I set up 3 FTP upload items:

Upload 56 files to ftp.tcstire.com/download/buildtest/
Upload 09 files to ftp.tcstire.com/download/buildtest/App_Code
Upload 02 files to ftp.tcstire.com/download/buildtest/App_Code/_notes

The ftp.tcstire.com/download/buildtest/ directory existed.

The error is attached...kinda hard to read.

Here is the log:
002-0002 23:37:23.000 *EXECUTE    Upload 9 files to ftp.tcstire.com/download/buildtest/App_Code
         23:37:33.531 ERROR       Upload failed - Error = File unavailable
550 download/buildtest/App_Code: No such file or directory
 command = ChangeDir
002-0003 23:40:25.078 *EXECUTE    Upload C:\_Current\ePower\eCommerce\App_Code\_notes\dwsync.xml to ftp.tcstire.com/download/buildtest/App_Code/_notes
         23:40:35.578 ERROR       Upload failed - Error = File unavailable

Terry,

The current FTP is VERY limited - it can just upload to one folder and that folder needs to exist on the server.  It looks to me that the errors occur because the remote folders don't exist.  The current release also has a bug in it that will make the upload timeout prematurely.  I'm working on getting a release out into beta and hoping to get it into public release around mid April.  It is mainly bug fixes and once it is released I can concentrate on adding new features and implementing additions to the FTP etc.
