LFTP mirror Linux

mirror [OPTS] [source [target]]

     Mirror specified source directory to local target directory.
     If  target directory ends with a slash, the source base name
     is appended to target directory name. Source  and/or  target
     can be URLs pointing to directories.

          -e, --delete        delete files not present at remote site
              --delete-first       delete old files before transferring new ones
              --depth-first        descend into subdirectories before transferring files
          -s, --allow-suid         set suid/sgid bits according to remote site
              --allow-chown   try to set owner and group on files

              --ignore-time        ignore time when deciding whether to download
              --ignore-size        ignore size when deciding whether to download
              --only-missing  download only missing files
              --only-existing download only files already existing at target
          -n, --only-newer    download only newer files (-c won't work)
              --no-empty-dirs don't create empty directories (implies --depth-first)
          -r, --no-recursion  don't go to subdirectories
              --no-symlinks   don't create symbolic links
          -p, --no-perms      don't set file permissions
              --no-umask      don't apply umask to file modes
          -R, --reverse       reverse mirror (put files)
          -L, --dereference   download symbolic links as files
          -N, --newer-than=SPEC    download only files newer than specified time
              --on-change=CMD      execute the command if anything has been changed
              --older-than=SPEC    download only files older than specified time
              --size-range=RANGE   download only files with size in specified range
          -P, --parallel[=N]  download N files in parallel
              --use-pget[-n=N]     use pget to transfer every single file
              --loop          loop until no changes found
          -i RX, --include RX include matching files
          -x RX, --exclude RX exclude matching files
          -I GP, --include-glob GP include matching files
          -X GP, --exclude-glob GP exclude matching files
          -v, --verbose[=level]    verbose operation
              --log=FILE      write lftp commands being executed to FILE
              --script=FILE        write lftp commands to FILE, but don't execute them
              --just-print, --dry-run   same as --script=-
              --use-cache          use cached directory listings
          --Remove-source-files    remove files after transfer (use with caution)
          -a             same as --allow-chown --allow-suid --no-umask

     When  using  -R, the first directory is local and the second
     is remote.  If the second directory is omitted, base name of
     first  directory  is used.  If both directories are omitted,
     current local and remote directories are  used.   If  target
     directory  ends  with  a  slash (except root directory) then
     base name of source directory is appended.

     RX is an extended regular expression, just like in egrep(1).

     GP is a glob pattern, e.g. `*.zip'.

     Include and exclude options can be specified multiple times.
     It means that a file or directory would be  mirrored  if  it
     matches  an include and does not match to excludes after the
     include, or does not match anything and the first  check  is
     exclude. Directories are matched with a slash appended.

     Note  that  symbolic links are not created when uploading to
     remote server, because ftp protocol cannot do it. To  upload
     files  the  links  refer to, use `mirror -RL' command (treat
     symbolic links as files).

     For option --newer-than you can either  specify  a  file  or
     time  specification  like  that  used by at(1) command, e.g.
     `now-7days' or `week ago'. If you specify a file, then modi-
     fication time of that file will be used.

     Verbosity level can be selected using --verbose=level option
     or by several -v options, e.g. -vvv. Levels are:
          0 - no output (default)
          1 - print actions
          2 - +print not deleted file names (when -e is not specified)
          3 - +print directory names which are mirrored

     --only-newer   turns   off   file   size   comparison    and
     uploads/downloads  only  newer files even if size is differ-
     ent. By default older  files  are  transferred  and  replace
     newer ones.

     You  can  mirror  between  two  servers  if you specify URLs
     instead of  directories.   FXP  is  used  automatically  for
     transfers between ftp servers, if possible.

     Some ftp servers hide dot-files by default (e.g. .htaccess),
     and show them only when LIST command is used with -a option.
     In such case try to use `set ftp:list-options -a'.
