I'm newbie in Shell Srcipt Programming. I want to copy some binary files to remote server through ftp script. I got a script which is working fine like coping files to remote server. But I want to put some conditions in script like if the file already exists so should n't be copy to remote server and copy daily atleast 5 files to remote server. Where to put those conditions in script.
LOCALDIR=/backup/archive REMOTESERVER=126.96.36.199 REMOTESERVER=/dump/archive LOGIN=admin PASSWORD=xyz FTPLOG='/tmp/ftplog' date >> $FTPLOG cd $LOCALDIR ftp -n $REMOTESERVER <<INPUT_END quote user $LOGIN quote pass $PASSWORD cd $REMOTEPATH prompt off mput *.* exit INPUT_END
