Hello,
I found the forum’s information very helpful and informative. I am relatively new to UNIX programming. I am researching how to write a UNIX shell script to ftp all files from specific host folder to a client server. Also need to archive all transferred files, send a message (email) if any file was not transferred successfully and save (email) a log after the shell script execution. Delete all files from the host folder (that were transferred and archived successfully).
Could you please help me? Where can find additional information or script’s examples?
Thank you in advance

Hi :)

I had a quick hunt around and found this
https://tldp.org/LDP/abs/html/

but really it might be better to use this site
https://distrowatch.com/
to find your specific version of linux and their page should help you navigate to their user-forum

Also this is a good site for general linux enquiries
http://www.linuxquestions.org
as it is a lot more focussed on linux generally

Good luck and regards from
Tom :)
