Simple FTP Plugin

Simple plugin to allow FTP upload of the contents of a particular Foswiki topic page.

This plugin provides a simple way of automating FTP-based uploading of topic content to a server. It provides an alternative to PublishPlugin where the full power / complexity of the latter is not required.

After installation, one can add something like:

<a class='foswikiPopUp' href='%SCRIPTURLPATH{"rest"}%/SimpleFTPPlugin/ftpupload?srcweb=%BASEWEB%;srctopic=%BASETOPIC%;ftpserver=ftp.example.com;ftpusername=exampleuser;ftppassword=examplepassword;dstpath=/www;dstfilename=example.html' rel='nofollow'>Upload the FTP content of this page</a>

to the topic page with content one wishes to upload.

The content to be uploaded needs to be delimited by %STARTFTPCONTENT% and %ENDFTPCONTENT% on separate lines.

The user attempting to upload must have VIEW permission on the specified topic page.

Mandatory URL parameters are srcweb, srctopic; optional parameters are ftpserver, ftpusername, ftppassword, dstpath and dstfilename. If any of ftpserver, ftpusername, ftppassword or dstpath are not specified, the plugin uses the relevant default value(s) specified in the configure settings for the plugin. If dstfilename is not specified, the default name of the file created on the server is 'output.html'.


A default server, username, password and path can be set in configure; example configure values are specified by default.


You do not need to install anything in the browser to use this extension. The following instructions are for the administrator who installs the extension on the server.

Open configure, and open the "Extensions" section. Use "Find More Extensions" to get a list of available extensions. Select "Install".

If you have any problems, or if the extension isn't available in configure, then you can still install manually from the command-line. See http://foswiki.org/Support/ManuallyInstallingExtensions for more help.
