Question Uploading a file in ftp by culr?

I have ftp url, username and passwd.
My file is named app.log.
How do I upload this to my ftp server???

I read the manual but I didn't understand much...Smilie

It's pretty simple, actually. The basic structure is
curl <option> <URI>

with the URI being a combination of protocol, user, password, server, port, and path. The option you're looking for is -T. So the command line would be
curl -T /local/path/file ftp://<user>:<pass>@<server>/remote/path

curl -u <user> -T /local/path/file ftp://<server>/remote/path

if you want curl to ask for the password.

Thank you for the information. I noticed that the password "lefts" the PC as plain text, and a sniffer (like wireshark) can easily capture it and thief it. So anyone can have my passwd. Is there any option to make the passwd encrypted or something?

This is a limitation of ftp. If the remote host has sshd running on it, you can use sftp or scp instead:

scp /path/to/local-file user@remote-host:/path/to/destination

Or, in addition to Coronas suggestion, some servers support FTPS (FTP + SSL)
