FTP Via HTTP

G’day,

Is there any way I can view my site contents (like i would in an FTP client) from a webpage ?

There is somthing that is buried deep in my web page an would like to obtain it at work. Behind a firewall that does not allow traffic on the FTP ports, nor the installation of FTP client software.

Kind Regards

It sort of depends. If you have indexes enabled (the default), and don’t have an index page in that directory, you can view a directory listing just by going to http://example.com/some_directory/.

If you know the exact location of the file, you should be able to just type it into a browser (maybe email yourself the link?), or else create a web page which links to the file.

Failing any of that, install a gui front end for scp and use that. I believe there are some suggestions in kbase for that.
