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?
Thanks, all the best!
