I really hope someone can help me!
I've recently set up a number of PCs to sync photos stored on them to a central server, where they are then sent on to a webserver for online sales. I've used rsync to achieve the first part, and lftp for the second.
On the 1st PC (ubuntu 11.04), rsync runs every 15 minutes on a cron job with these options:
for some reason though it doesn't send every file. It seems to skip a few every 10 or so photos (photos get added to it's upload directory every 1-5 minutes, so quite frequently). Is there anything in that command that stands out to anyone that might explain this?
rsync -e ssh -varuzP /home/cyg_server/upload/ MYSERVER:/home/cyg_server/photostore/CLI/ --remove-source-files --temp-dir=/home/cyg_server/photostore/temp >> /home/cyg_server/Desktop/PhotoUploadLog.txt
The second (server) PC runs windows server 2008 with rsyncd running on cygwin (hence the username "cyg_server".
This is a serious problem as we're getting huge backlogs of files which I have to re-send manually, and we're getting constant emails from people asking where the hell their photo is!
