Hi,

First thing I noticed: You forgot the $ in 2 places:
Code:
ncftp -u "$FTPU" -p "$FTPP" $FTPS<<EOF
Hope this helps.

Hi,

It works on my side if I recreate your script. Can you post your full script and use code tags. I.e.: [code]script goes here[/code]

You might want to try using ftp instead of ncftp. Try the following:
Code:
#!/bin/bash

BAK="/opt/DBbackups"
NOW=$(date +"%d-%m-%Y")

FTPU="user"
FTPP="password"
FTPS="ipnumber"

### UPLOADING BACKUP FILES TO FTP SERVER ###
ftp -n $FTPS <<EOF
user $FTPU $FTPP
prompt
mkdir $NOW
cd $NOW
lcd $BAK
mput *
quit
EOF
Hope this helps.

Hi,

This is not an error. The prompt command turns off interactive mode, and this fact is echoed to screen.

BTW: You're welcome
