How to know?

Hi !

I've just installed LFTP for mirroring some stuffs at night. LFTP starts to mirror a remote directory at 9:00 pm, and my question is: How to know what have been done during that night (ie what files have been updated or deleted, the download time.....)

THX for help!

Sorry that I can't say i've served an FTP mirror. But the program should have a logging feature. If not, you may have to write your own FTP logging script.

Try reading the man pages first. If you don't have them installed (try typing man lftp then you can find a link here:

It looks like you can set the verbosity as part of the mirror option. You can in turn capture this output when lftp is run and save it in a file for future reference.

Hope that helps.
