How to FTP to a directory?

Username (e.g. epiz_XXX) or Website URL

Error Message

failed ftp upload

Other Information

I am able to ftp to the root directory using the curl command $ curl -u username:password -T test.txt

How do I ftp to a directory e.g htdocs. I tried and /htdocs but this does not work.

Can you try to use a ftp client like filezilla

Thanks but I would like to use curl in the gitbash commandline as I am learning how it works.

Interesting, I had no idea that it was possible to do FTP with cURL. I’ve used cURL quite a bit, but only with HTTP.

Last time I did FTP on the command line, I used the lftp program for that.

Although, I do suppose you could try:

curl -u username:password -T test.txt

The trailing slash may be important, it can be the difference between uploading the file TO the htdocs folder or AS the htdocs folder entry.
