    Steps to copy a local file to a remote directory?

    user18253

      Hi All,

       

      First post here, I have a little problem that I'd love nail down!

       

      One of our clients want any given list of contacts to be pinned onto a map through the use of a button.

       

      I have a script that exports a found set of contacts to an XML file.

      This file is formatted to be read by google to process the records and create pins on a google map (containing the company name, postcode and description).

      Everything works as expected.

       

      My issue is I am currently manually copying the exported file to an FTP server in order for google to be able to reference it.

      I'm searching for a way to automate this copying process, so I can add the steps onto the end of the export script.

       

      I've tried using the command line but can't seem to get a solid connection to the FTP server (I'm using GoDaddy - DOH!).

      I've also tried various PHP FTP methods with no luck.

       

      Am I correct in attempting to use an FTP server to achieve this or is there a better method?

       

      Any ideas?

       

      Thanks, all the best!
