And, if you don't have ssh access to the web server -- but rather, just ftp -- there's `ftpsync` which I use. When Googling for `ftpsync` , ignore the windo$ hits. There's a name collison there. You want the linux program. Be carefull with ".htaccess". heh heh Mine are different for the local machine -- mainly for testing and local lan purposes. Now and then I screw up and upload an .htaccess from the local web server to the World-Wide-Web server. Big snafu - that! :-) HTH Jonesy -- Marvin L Jones | jonz | W3DHJ | linux 38.24N 104.55W | @ config.com | Jonesy | OS/2 * Killfiling google & XXXXbanter.com: jonz.net/ng.htm -- PHP General Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
