Default Scripting Support?

I use FlashFXP religiously for installing & upgrading scripts that have several hundred files. It would be a massive help if I could implement a script inside FlashFXP to automatically CHMOD specified files and/or directories (w/ recursive CHMOD support - don't want to have to name each individual file).

In all, I have to CHMOD 8 directories & 27 files. However, the files that I want to CHMOD are not all together, so I have to hunt down each set of files to change their permissions with each installation.

As a one time thing that's done infrequently, this is not a problem, but I do several installations & upgrades per day, and this would save me a lot of time.

There are other FTP clients on the market that have scripting support, but I am hoping that something can be done for my favorite FTP client, which I've already purchased 2 licenses for.




For the search monkeys: I did try searching but came up with nothing. If you can bring up results I missed, feel free to post a link and accept my apologies.

This could be done with a custom command

Create a single custom command that performs all of the CHMODs

SITE CHMOD 666 <path/file>
SITE CHMOD 600 <path/file>
SITE CHMOD 555 <path/file>

etc

There are no immedate plans for scripting so this would be your best option.

Hello,

Thanks for the prompt reply. At least there's a way to do what I need to do, that's all I really care about.

Is there documentation on how to set up custom commands?
Will I be able to change the permissions on all the files with one "command", or will I have to set up several commands?
Will custom commands support recursive CHMOD?

(Might want to move this to a support forum)

currently custom commands don't support a custom chmod with recrusive support.

The custom command script basically sends the commands directly to the ftp server without any special processing.
