FTP deprecated


#1

So it seems we’re not supposed to use FTP any more.

But the website maker software I use (fogcreek citydesk) can only do FTP.

So what I’m thinking of doing is this: whenever I upload something, I immediately afterwards change the password.

Should that be OK?


#2

Rather than do that, how about trying to use a secure copy mode as suggested here.

[quote]Quote from the CityDesk page referenced above
CityDesk 2.0 has the ability to run any command line after publishing. So you can use scp/sftp/rdist or other upload tools that have a command line equivalent by setting up CityDesk to publish to a directory on your hard drive and then automatically launching the command line that invokes your upload tool to upload those files.

Yes, generally, as long as you have SSH access to a Linux server, you will be able to use an SFTP client. I think this is because almost everyone uses OpenSSH, which supports both SSH and SFTP out of the box.
