SITE Commands


SITE MKDIR

This SITE command allows the creation of a full directory path, similar to mkdir -p /path/to/dir. It is primarily for convenience, instead of having to use a loop of MKD and CWD commands; the normal MKD FTP command only creates a single directory at a time.

The syntax for SITE MKDIR is:

  SITE MKDIR path

Use of this SITE command can be controlled via <Limit> sections, e.g.:

  <Limit SITE_MKDIR>
    AllowUser alex
    DenyAll
  </Limit>


SITE RMDIR

This SITE command allows the deletion of a full directory path, similar to rm -fr /path/to/dir. It recursively deletes all of the files and directories under the given path. This command is primarily for convenience, instead of having to use a loop of NLST, DELE, and CWD commands; the normal DELE FTP command only deletes a single file at a time, and the normal RMD command does not handle removing directories that are not empty.

The syntax for SITE RMDIR is:

  SITE RMDIR path

Use of this SITE command can be controlled via <Limit> sections, e.g.:

  <Limit SITE_RMDIR>
    AllowUser alex
    DenyAll
  </Limit>


SITE SYMLINK

This SITE command allows the creation of symbolic links, similar to ln -s.

The syntax for SITE SYMLINK is:

  SITE SYMLINK source destination

Use of this SITE command can be controlled via <Limit> sections, e.g.:

  <Limit SITE_SYMLINK>
    AllowUser alex
    DenyAll
  </Limit>


SITE UTIME

This SITE command allows for setting the access and modification timestamps on files, similar to the touch /path/to/file command. This allows sites to have the often-requested ability to set the modification time on uploaded files.

The syntax for SITE UTIME is:

  SITE UTIME YYYYMMDDhhmm path
For example:
  SITE UTIME 200402240836 file.txt
would set the access and modification timestamps on file.txt to 8:36 AM, Febrary 24, 2004.

Use of this SITE command can be controlled via <Limit> sections, e.g.:

  <Limit SITE_UTIME>
    AllowUser alex
    DenyAll
  </Limit>
