need help with ftplicity
I've got ftplicity running according to the how-to from howtoforge and it runs fine. Till now I only had to restore single files, which worked fine with ftplicity fetch, now I need to restore a complete folder with all sub folders.

I played around with it, read the manual but can't figure out how to do that.

can anyone who's using it help me out there?

Btw. I do a monthly full backup and the rest are only differential backups. I basically need a wordpress installation's plugin folder restored as the upgrade of a plugin broke a couple of things. I know when the upgrade was done, so basically restoring the version from 1day before the upgrade should fix it.

I tried something along these lines:


./ftplicity h1550830 fetch var/www/clients/clientXX/webXX/web/wp-content/plugins/ /root/mike-restore 7D
that gives me:

var/www/clients/clientXX/webXX/web/wp-content/plugins/ not found in archive, no files restored.
So obviously I tried this next:

./ftplicity h1550830 fetch var/www/clients/clientXX/webXX/web/wp-content/plugins /root/mike-restore 7D
notice the missing trailing slash behind the folder name.....

this gives me the same error as above :-(

Can you log in to your FTP backup server and check if var/www/clients/clientXX/webXX/web/wp-content/plugins/ exists?

how would I do that? ftplicity encrypts and divides the backup into 5MB packages and without decrypting each of them, I can't tell that...

Besides, I am sure its a syntax problem, if I append a file name to the end of that path it works... I jsut can't type in all the filenames one by one, the restore woudl take ages :-(

gotta admit, it was my fault. I had misread a line and was trying to restore the wrong client :-(
works jsut as supposed to do...
