ftp upload directories

I have a hosted site I use only as a backup and I am new to this and FTP. I have used this host's interfaces to do the job but this is very tedious.

From what I gathered, I can only upload files using FTP, not complete directories.

I have a main directory containing some 30 directories that mostly hold files but some have sub directories as well.

How can I upload this main directory and everything below? Or do I have to make a script that names each directory and sub directory to have all the files uploaded?

Thank you for your help.

The question may be better suited in another forum, as it is not really Debian related. All I recall from using an ftp command line is that typing help gives you a list of commands you can read up on. I just tried it from bash, and help says the command to send multiple files is "mput".

Cheers mate

True, I put the question in the wrong forum, I should have been a bit more careful.

mput is for multiple files from the same directory

Thank you for the answer.
