Manually testing ncftpput to ensure it worksLast Modified: Nov 13, 2014, 12:46 am
If your DA backups are not able to transfer to ftp, it's often a good idea to test the transfer process manually to ensure it works. This gives finer grained control over the settings, and any errors generated.

Enter the following values to update the guide:
FTP User
FTP Path
Local File

1) To duplicate what DA does, we first need to create the ftp config:

cd /root
touch ftp.cfg
chmod 600 ftp.cfg
echo "host" >> ftp.cfg
echo "user ftpuser" >> ftp.cfg
echo "pass ftppass" >> ftp.cfg

which will be used by the ncftpput binary.

2) Now test the upload of a sample file:

/usr/bin/ncftpput -f ftp.cfg -V -t 25 -P 21 -m "/ftp/path" "/local/file.tar.gz"

And see what errors are generated.
