Backup FTP site

Post by Godders » March 22nd, 2005, 5:38 pm

Hi there.

Im trying out AceBIT, which i thinks great bar one small problem.

I cannot seem to be able to add a FTP site to my backup.

I have added the ftp folder in network places and can browse it etc with AceBit, but i cannot put them in the project.

Any help with this one will ensure a sale :wink:

Hello,

unfortunately it is not clear what exactly you want to do. Do you want to backup files from FTP, or should the backup be placed on a FTP server? Are there any error messages when trying this?

Thanks for the reply.

I would like to backup a FTP site to my backup volume.

I can see the site in the explorer in AceBackup. I cannot however put the files into the project manager explorer window.

Hello,

unfortunately, AceBackup currently does not support backing up from FTP. Do you also use WISE-FTP? In this case we would propose to create a WISE-FTP (not AceBackup) scheduled task that downloads all the data from the FTP source to some local directory, for exacmple once per week.
