    Directory Download Script

    Hello,

    Wondering if anyone knows of a certain script / solution...

    I need a script that will download all the files from an FTP server recursively to the local machine and delete the files and folders from the FTP server after it downloads each one. This script will run every 15 minutes via cron.

    Originally I was going to use wget to get the directory tree that I need but as far as I see it does not delete files from the server after downloading them. (it does delete files locally after downloading them with --delete-after)

    The script will be running on a Mac with OS X 10.2 so anything unix based should work.

    I would really appreciate some help as I am currently at a loss. I only know basic shell scripting myself :S

    Thanks.
    Marcel

    I built ncftp on my system and it works great for doing this.

    Just add this to the crontab:

    ncftpget -u [user] -p [password] -R -DD [host] [local dir] [remote files]

    Thanks
