My script failed and can't fix it ?

Hi ,
I'd like to give you a little bit idea about my script which is used to get any generated file from remote server using ftp session then organized those file into directories based on their date ( at the end I supposed to have 1 months directories 20130401 20130402 ....20130430 ,
unfortunately my script which contains " two different block" went wrong whenever run it, please note that I run each block individually and success , could someone pass through every line & tell my what mistaken I did , thanks lot :-

[ -d $sdir ] || mkdir -p  $sdir
echo  "$0 started: $(date)"
ftp -in x,x,x,x  << ENDFTP
user username password
cd $ddir
lcd $sdir
mget *.text
echo  "$0 finished: $(date)"
cd $sdir
for dir in $( ls -1  | cut -c1-8 | sort -u ) ; do
    [ -d $dir ] || mkdir  -p $dir      
    for file in $( find $dir  -type f ) ; do
          echo "Move $file  to  $dir"
          mv  $file  $dir

Change "find dir" to "find $dir".

Please use code tags as required by forum rules!

The only obvious mistake I can find at first glance is
for file in $( find  dir  -type f ) ;

will not start the search in the respective directory; use find $dir instead.

And: post an execution log of your script running (= set the -x option)

What's the error message? What's the specific problem? And please send an example of the directory structure. Then the dears can help you. Smilie
