How to sync ftp-site with local directory ?


Hi all

Don't if this is the right forum (my first post here), but here we go:

I'm maintaining a forum and are doing some regular adjusting of several files and translations.

Now, I don't want to login via a ftp client every time just for uploading one file.

So I want a program that can see which files are new ones on the remote server and download these files to my local directory.

At the same time it should upload the files that I've changed locally.

I've being looking at weex which is a great utility for uploading files this way, but the problem is that my forum consist of non-static files, f.ex history from a chatbox, avatars etc.

Anyone knows of such a utility ?

I've been looking at fmirror and rsync. The syntax of using these programs is pretty hard to understand, also I don't know if one of these are the appropriate one :-/


What do you guys out there use for this purpose ?
