how to lftp mirror in a bash


Friends
I wish to have a script that will do a lftp mirror
that will sync up a local dir to the ftp dir

local dir is is an external drive on my dsktop
/media/facing_history_1/00
where facing_history_1 is the drive and 00 is a dir I wish for the files to go to

the remote dir is on the ftp server
172.16.100.101 ,
the user is editor
the password apple
and the dir that I wish to source from is : array1/f_t

Note: i can do it manually - but wish to have a script that i can cron.

here is the script I am currently trying
<code>
#!/bin/bash
#########_______ test of mirror
log=~/log/f_h_logfile.txt
batch=00
dest=/media/facing_history_1/$batch
cd $dest
echo start $(date) >> $log

DATE='date +%Y%m%d'
#mkdir $DATE
echo "Get files"
#lftp -u username,password -e >> LOGFILE
#lftp 172.16.100.101 -u editor,apple cd array1/f_t mirror -c >> $log
lftp 172.16.100.101 -u editor,apple
cd array1/f_t
mirror -c
exit
echo end $(date) >> $log
echo ............ >> $log
</code>

currently when I run this script
i DO get to the ftp server
but it 'stalls' at root - meaning the cd array1/f_t never happens
nor does the mirror -c happen

when i run it I am logged into the server
and in that shell i can do a dir and see where i am and I can manually put in : cd array1/f_t , and that gets me there
and I can manually put in mirror -c , and that pulls the files.

so __ how do i put this all on 1 line and have it all happen
as you can see i did try - all 1 line -
lftp 172.16.100.101 -u editor,apple cd array1/f_t mirror -c

and I have tried in 3 lines
lftp 172.16.100.101 -u editor,apple
cd array1/f_t
mirror -c
but it stalls after the logIn

thanks
z

ok I have something that is sorta working
<code>
#!/bin/bash
#########_______ test of mirror
log=~/log/f_h_logfile.txt
batch=00
dest=/media/facing_history_1/$batch
cd $dest
echo start $(date) >> $log

DATE='date +%Y%m%d'
#mkdir $DATE
echo "Get files"
#lftp -u username,password -e >> LOGFILE
#lftp 172.16.100.101 -u editor,apple cd array1/f_t mirror -c >> $log
#lftp 172.16.100.101 -u editor,apple
#set 'cd array1/f_t'
# mirror -c
###lftp -c 'open -e "set ftp:list-options -a; mirror -a --parallel=10 -v fromdir/ ./todir" -u user,pass host'
lftp -c 'open -e "set ftp:list-options -a; mirror -a -v array1/f_t/ ./media/facing_history_1/00" -u editor,apple 172.16.100.101 >> $log'
exit
echo end $(date) >> $log
echo ............ >> $log
</code>

but it does not log
lftp -c 'open -e "set ftp:list-options -a; mirror -a -v array1/f_t/ ./media/facing_history_1/00" -u editor,apple 172.16.100.101 >> $log'
isn the same as
lftp -c 'open -e "set ftp:list-options -a; mirror -a -v array1/f_t/ ./media/facing_history_1/00" -u editor,apple 172.16.100.101'

and it does not go to
echo end $(date) >> $log
echo ............ >> $log

i suppose that is the exit
but I was thinking the exit -- there-- would exit the ftp
and --sorta-- drop back into bash space

how might one do that
I am also trying to have a better understanding of what happens w the
lftp -c 'open -e "set ftp:list-options -a; mirror -a -v

any wisdom would be appreciated
