I want to upload a file to an FTP, however the FTP not always have the directory i want to put my file on and also it may need more tan 1 directory to be created before uploading the file

My Ftp always contains these route:

however i need to créate theese folders before uploading my file


how ever not always does the ftp has these routes

i need to be able to check if these folders exist and if not créate them, i have tryed Ftp.MakeDirectory but these only creates the last folder i need to créate the 3 of them before uploading a file and dont know how to make these

What I have tried:

this is my code as for now

public void UploadFTP( string userName, string password, string FilePath, string FileName)
     string hostFTPIP="";

     FtpWebRequest ftpWebRequest = null;
     Stream ftpStream = null;
     int bufferSize = 2048;
     string fullpath = FilePath + FileName;

     ftpWebRequest = (FtpWebRequest)FtpWebRequest.Create(hostFTPIP);
     ftpWebRequest.Credentials = new NetworkCredential(userName, password);

     ftpWebRequest.Method = WebRequestMethods.Ftp.MakeDirectory;

     ftpWebRequest.UseBinary = true;
     ftpWebRequest.UsePassive = false;
     ftpWebRequest.KeepAlive = true;
     ftpWebRequest.Method = WebRequestMethods.Ftp.UploadFile;
     ftpStream = ftpWebRequest.GetRequestStream();
     FileStream LocalUserFileStream = new FileStream(fullpath, FileMode.Open, FileAccess.Read);
     byte[] byteBuffer = new byte[bufferSize];
     int bytesSent = LocalUserFileStream.Read(byteBuffer, 0, bufferSize);
       while (bytesSent != 0)
         ftpStream.Write(byteBuffer, 0, bytesSent);
         bytesSent = LocalUserFileStream.Read(byteBuffer, 0, bufferSize);

     catch (Exception ex)
      Console.WriteLine("Error in Uploading Files" + ex);
     ftpWebRequest = null;

"i have tryed Ftp.MakeDirectory but these only creates the last folder i need to créate the 3...and dont know how to make these"

yes, thats the way it works, and and answer is, you make the directory levels one at a time - have a look here for thoughts
