Automating Ftp Uploads With Powershell

| Comments

In my last post I have shared hwo you can archive a folder via powershell and Pscx. In my normal backup process I am used to upload zip files using ftp client like filezilla but now I am trying powershell to perform this task.

Please feel free to test following code and let me know your thoughts and improvements.

#upload file using ftp
function FtpUpload($file, $ftphost, $ftpuser, $ftppass){   
   $Dir = Split-Path $file -Parent 
   $filename = $file.Replace("$Dir\", "")

   #ftp server 
   $webclient = New-Object System.Net.WebClient 
   $webclient.Credentials = New-Object System.Net.NetworkCredential($ftpuser,$ftppass) 
    
    #list every sql server trace file 
    foreach($item in (dir $Dir $filename)){ 
        "Uploading $item..." 
        $filepath = $ftphost+$item.Name
        $filepath
        $uri = New-Object System.Uri($filepath)         
        $webclient.UploadFile($uri, $item.FullName) 
    } 
}
