I am looking to setup a simple backup of compressed files via ftp.
I used curlftpfs to mount the remote server's ftp directory.
If I place something in the mounted directory it doesn't seem like it is being written on the ftp server.
Also, I am not able to see the existing contents on ftp which tells me either I have configured something wrong or the fact that curlftpfs is abandoned and has compatibility issues with newer software.
I did the simple install of curlftpfs and added the following to my /etc/fstab
There is no error while mounting but no transfers take place!
curlftpfs#user:firstname.lastname@example.org:1313 /mnt/ftpbackup fuse rw,all_other,uid=1001 0 0
Can anyone suggest me an alternative program or even a script to make the backup from the linux box to the ftp server running on another windows system?
