Sorry, no etymologies found.
(If you use them, then you know who I’m talking about, because chances are your website/email/ftp is not working either.) Hopefully it won’t come to that.
If you are not sure, ftp to ucbarpa. berkeley.edu, login as anonymous password ftp and get ftpd. shar.
Now we create a database called ftp and a MySQL user named proftpd which the proftpd daemon will use later on to connect to the mysql - u root - p create database ftp;
The only box that remains checked is ftp, which is not needed, since safari does not do it anyway.
When you get the 'ftp' prompt back, you can then say 'get msdos. crclst'.
To start, give the command 'ftp wsmr-simtel20. army.mil' from your shell prompt, or 'open wsmr-simtel20. army, mil' from the 'ftp' prompt.
You should then shortly get back the 'ftp' prompt.
The service is 20-40/mo (can be more depending on if you get a media package, which I assume you’d need) but it’s real easy to use (has ftp, which is a GODSEND) and is compatible with all browsers (for management, doesn’t mean your site is gonna work just depends on what you build it in).
This is resulting in strange behaviour such as ftp timing out and high load on the mysql node.
This starts to venture into the "mildly geeky" realm in that most of these types of storage are accessed by what's called "ftp", one of the oldest internet file transfer protocols around.
