I have about 5 domains which my host only keeps the log files up for a couple of days on. I hate losing log files, but I also hate downloading, untarring, and renaming the files every day (or freaking out if I decide to take a vacation). Below are the steps I need to accomplish, which I would like to completely automate. Can anyone recommend an ftp program capable of this? I also have a linux box available, but little shell scripting experience, if anyone wants to point me in that direction. 1. Automatically connect to ftp server and download file. The name of the file changes every month, but predictably. 2. Unzip and untar file. 3. Rename file based on the current date. This can be obtained from the system or from lines inside the log file, but not from the file name.
