FTP Tricks


Some tricks when using FTP.
How to move files on FTP without deleting and re-uploading?
On linux servers, when renaming a directory, '../../mydir' and '/mydir' is accepted. You can move files using the '../../../' characters.

On windows servers, you should be able to use the backslash '..\..\'

This could save you tons of time. For example if you had a directory with 1000 files in it, you can move this directory basically ANYWHERE you wish by renaming the dir to: '../yourdir/subdir/'

Normally, you would have to delete the files and re-upload them. Think again.
