All I can advise
DATE=`date +%Y%m%d -d "1 days ago"`


tmp=($(lftp -e "cd $REMOTE_DIR && glob -d echo [0-9]*; quit" -u $USER,$PASS $HOST))
REMOTE_DIR="$REMOTE_DIR/${tmp[@]: -1}"

mkdir -p '/app/'${DATE}''

lftp -u $USER,$PASS $HOST <<EOF
set ftp:ssl-protect-data true
set ftp:ssl-force true
set ssl:verify-certificate no

unfortunately on remote location there are some directories that use 6 digit number!
when I ran script it copy them instead of 8 digit directories.

e.g: remote directory content like this:


output of script: (copy content of this directory 991019 instead of this 13991013)


expected output: (content of this 13991013 (exact 8digit))

tmp=($(lftp -e "cd $REMOTE_DIR && glob -d echo [0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9]; quit" -u $USER,$PASS $HOST))

Or maybe you have access via the SSH protocol? For example, by public key
REMOTE_DIR="$REMOTE_DIR/$(ssh user@host "cd $REMOTE_DIR; ls -tp | grep -Em1 '[0-9]{8}/$'")"

Another option. If there is any sequence in the numbering of remote directories, for example,
the number in the name increases by one every day. You can simply organize a daily increase number in the local script
