I need a scripting solution to download several (more then 100) websites by FTP for backup purposes. For each website I want a scripting solution which supports 10 parallel connections to only one website.
- Each website has his own FTP address.
- Splitting the complete task in 10 different batches is ok but still there will be 1 connection to 1 server which cause very a very slow download. Create tars on the server is not a option and is out of this question :-)
I'm using Windows 8.1, 64-bit.
I tried Windows FTP but that supports only 1 parallel connections to 1 server.
Also WinSCP is not supporting more then 1 parallel connection to 1 FTP server command line mode. I tried several options and maybe I'm doing something wrong here???
download.bat > this file is started with admin rights
md n:\backupftp\ithaka.im\public_html winscp.exe /script="ithaka.txt"
open ftp://xxx:firstname.lastname@example.org/domains/ithaka.im/public_html lcd n:\backupftp\ithaka.im\public_html get *
winscp.com are portable executables in the same directory as the
As a result of this I don't see the GUI interface. Only a task in the task manager. If I turn on logging I see only 1 connection to 1 FTP server at a time. No parallel downloads from 1 FTP server.
If I change the
download.bat into (notice that I change
md n:\backupftp\ithaka.im\public_html winscp.com /script="ithaka.txt"
The result will be:
modules | 0 B | 0,0 KB/s | binary | 0% php | 0 B | 0,0 KB/s | binary | 0% php.test | 4 KB | 6,9 KB/s | binary | 100% php.module | 7 KB | 6,6 KB/s | binary | 100% php.install | 1 KB | 1,8 KB/s | binary | 100% php.info | 274 B | 1,3 KB/s | binary | 100% block | 0 B | 1,3 KB/s | binary | 0%
etc etc etc.. these downloads are not parallel and not supported by WinSCP.
- Do I something wrong with WINSCP
- Is there a FTP scripting solution which support this on Windows? I looked into several alternatives but they all have graphical user interfaces which I don't want..
