Does your website goes down sometimes? Did you notice your website database corrupted? Have you noticed SQL injection attacks on your website? Have you seen your website defaced by any hacker where all your website reflects, a message that ‘you are hacked’, or ‘patch your site admin’ etc. Its a routine matter, seen by many webmasters. I can tell you, I have experienced it all and still see this often. Sometimes website front page is replaced by hacker. Sometimes database gets corrupted. Sometimes website goes down. Sometimes whole root directory disappears. Hosting provider can suspend your hosting account because of any hacker who gained access to your hosting account to spread malware. Its horrible.
Doesn’t matter how much security you may apply, somehow there may be still chances that your website will be hacked, defaced or your mySQL database will be corrupted. In that case if you request web hosting backups, they fail to guarantee the latest full backup. Sometimes backup will be incomplete. Sometimes backup will be outdated.
So here comes the need for a regular, automated full website FTP and mySQL database backup. How do you take website and mySQL backups? Manually? Forget it. We recommend BackupSF software that can take automated full website FTP and database backups for you. Good news is, we are giving away 10 license keys for BackupSF.

There are many FTP file upload / download, data transfer, remote backup softwares. Despite of its simplicity, web developers still like to use FileZilla. Sometimes you want to see the hidden files at the remote server. Take an example of .htaccess file. By default its hidden from view at remote server when browsing through FileZilla. This tutorial explains how to view hidden files e.g. .htaccess with the FTP client FileZilla.
I can not ignore Linux users after posting FTP softwares for Windows and MAC. If MAC users are Pros then Linux users are Gurus. I have always a deep respect for Linux users. They are kind of self sufficient when it comes to OS and software. ftp is the old common standard file transfer tool from netkit. This is a basic thing installed on all Linux systems. Yet we have a list of other more powerful FTP clients and servers for Linux. Here are top Download/Upload managers or FTP clients for Linux.
FTP manager is need of every web developer which facilitates upload/download files from PC to remote host in a number of ways. While there are expensive FTP managers available in the market, I have compiled a list of absolutely free best FTP managers around that will do all the tasks which commercial FTP software would do.
Recover forgotten password from ANY FTP client easily. FTP Password Recovery emulates a local FTP server and thereby allows you to recover the FTP login password for any FTP account you may have, as long as it is cached inside an FTP client program. FTP passwords are commonly cached by FTP programs (WSFTTP,CuteFTP etc.), so you don’t have to enter them each time, but they are usually masked by asterisk or not shown at all. To recover those passwords, you can use the client, that holds the cached password, and connect to FTP Password Recovery, which will then reveal the password it receives from the FTP program. The program can only recover the passwords that are stored on your computer.
Besides using your favorite FTP manager in its graphical user interface, you can also give it instructions using commands. The benefit of these commands is that you have more control over your FTP program. All the controls for tasks which FTP can perform are not always present in its GUI. There is more you can do using these commands. Commands which begin with the letter X are generally reserved for experimental extensions. In every FTP software there is an option to run custom command or raw command. There are several commands for FTP. Infact here is a complete list of FTP commands you can use with your FTP software.
I have been using Cute ftp for a while and recently I got stuck with the following error:
Can’t Read From Data Socket – Socket Error = #10055
When I was trying to open a particular directory it was giving this error and directory was not opening.
Cause: An operation on a socket could not be performed because the system lacked sufficient buffer space or because a queue was full. This error indicates a shortage of system resources. Contributing factors may include the number of programs running simultaneously, the amount of physical memory available, the size of the paging file and the amount of disk space available. Lets fix this error.
