There is also a GUI: xsitecopy, but you cannot use both together. I stick to [ sitecopy].
Seems that this link is not working. Anyway the man pages gives you enough info to start.
After installation we a directory '''/home/user/.sitecopy''' (where the relevant update information is stored) and a config script '''/home/user/.sitecopyrc''' (where the what and where is stored).
mkdir ~/.sitecopy
and with your text editor do (I use gedit)
gedit ~/.sitecopyrc
Put the relevant ifo into '''.sitecopyrc'''
*site name of your site e.g. mijnsite
*server name of server e.g.
*protocol ftp
*port 21
*ftp nopasv
*username put your username for the site here
*password put your password for the server here
*local the directory where you locally store your files e.g. /home/user/site
*remote / the directory where you store your html pages on the server
*exclude *~ all files that will not be transferred. This is important because otherwise '''all''' files will be put onto the server. There is no need to have those '''~''' on the server.
Make sure you have all the required rights.
chmod 700 ~/.sitecopy
chmod 600 ~/.sitecopyrc
There are lots of options, but the most important one is '''--update'''.
Simply do
sitecopy -u mijnsite
Upload the local files to update the FTP (remote files will be overwritten). Other important options are
