Uploading PHP file to a web server [message #62000] Mon, 03 December 2007 09:29 Go to next message

Hello,

I would like to upload a file to a remote server. I have looked through all

that say to use rsync or use the built-in features of a version control
system for "Remote Server Synchronization". Do I take this to mean that I
cannot upload files directly from the PDT IDE?

Regards,

Jim Mohr

You need the Target Management plugins, see http://www.eclipse.org/dsdp/tm/

There is also the option to install the Aptana Studio plugin, it includes
a ftp tool which also has syncronize function among other things. I use
Aptana together with PDT as it has some great eatures PDT misses and the
other way around.

Hello again,

Maybe I am missing something, but the Target Management plugin and the whole
Target Management concept seems to be overkill. All I want to be able to do
is select a file or directory in a project and upload it to a webserver.
FTP and scp are standard tools and one or the other is usually available on
web hoster's servers. From what I interpret from the TM documentation is
that you need to install the Remote System Explorer on the target server.
While this is probably very useful conceptually, I am not the only one who
cannot install software like this on their web server. So I am interpreting
this to mean that this plugin is useless to me in this case.

I installed the Aptana plugin and see various Aptana entries in the help
menu. But that is about it. I cannot find anything that allows me to upload
a file or directory.

Regards,

Jim Mohr

Assuming you have the Remote System Explorer installed this can be
accomplished by right clicking on files/folders and selecting Export.
Then in the Export Dialog go to Other -> Remote File System. Then you
can choose the destination to export (upload) the files to.

The Remote System Explorer does not need to be installed on the target
server. Target Management provides support for a third protocol dstore
(DataStore) besides ftp and ssh that would require you to install the
server part on the target server. For ftp and ssh you do not need to
install anything on the target server though.

Amazing how simply things can be when you know where to look.

James,

it's all in the Sync Manager view of the Aptana perspective. There you
setup ftp connections and a sync item so you can use the same ftp
connection for several sites/projects.

The big advantage I see with Aptana is that you can either use it to sync
a site with a local project so only changed files are transfered or you
can select single files or dirs just to upload (or download). It works
very fine, but you have to give yourself some time to figure out how it
all works. There is documentation about it in the Aptana Help.
