Question

FTP for gulp/grunt tasks?

I am trying to upload files as a gulp task

gulp.task('ftp', function () {
    return gulp.src('public/js/myapp.js')
        .pipe(tasks.ftp({
            host: '111.111.111.11',
            user: 'USER',
            pass: 'PASS',
            port: 22
        }));
});

The above does not work because the default path is root, I need to guide it into var/www/mysite I am not sure where to go from here, I am tired of manually uploading my files when I make changes to them. Any help would be much appreciated.

22 is usually port for SSH/SFTP protocol, not FTP. try connecting to port 21 if it’s open, otherwise use https://github.com/gtg092x/gulp-sftp instead of gulp-ftp

Yeah I am, It’s not working because event without the remote path (thanks for pointing that out) its not uploading anything to any directory. <br> <br>The ftp credentials are correct I tested them by connecting to my server with filezilla. I am using filezilla to see if its uploading anything and it’s not. <br> <br>I wonder if there is something I need to do configuration wise?
