I have a list of ftp sites ( eg:5 ) in text file and i need to download the last created file from ftp sites. Is this possible. This is my code :

Python
import os
from ftplib import FTP

ftp = FTP("xxx.xx.xx.xx1", "USERNAME1", "PASSWORD1")
ftp = FTP("xxx.xx.xx.xx2", "USERNAME2", "PASSWORD2")
ftp = FTP("xxx.xx.xx.xx3", "USERNAME3", "PASSWORD3")
ftp = FTP("xxx.xx.xx.xx4", "USERNAME4", "PASSWORD4")
ftp = FTP("xxx.xx.xx.xx5", "USERNAME5", "PASSWORD5")

ftp.login()
ftp.retrlines("LIST")

ftp.cwd("SmythIN/2014-10-29") --- here  i have a folder created by current  date ...how can i pass current date folder i change directory.
ftp.cwd("subFolder") # or ftp.cwd("folderOne/subFolder")

listing = []
ftp.retrlines("LIST", listing.append)
words = listing[0].split(None, 8)
filename = words[-1].lstrip()

# download the file
local_filename = os.path.join(r"c:\myfolder", filename)
lf = open(local_filename, "wb")
ftp.retrbinary("RETR " + filename, lf.write, 8*1024)
lf.close()

What happens when you try it?

1 solution

Python
import time

accounts = (
    ("xxx.xx.xx.xx1", "USERNAME1", "PASSWORD1"),
    ("xxx.xx.xx.xx2", "USERNAME2", "PASSWORD2"),
    ("xxx.xx.xx.xx3", "USERNAME3", "PASSWORD3"),
    ("xxx.xx.xx.xx4", "USERNAME4", "PASSWORD4"),
    ("xxx.xx.xx.xx5", "USERNAME5", "PASSWORD5"),
)


TODAY = time.strftime("%Y-%m-%d")################################

for account in accounts:
    ftp = FTP(*account)####################################
    ftp.login()
    ftp.retrlines("LIST")#<-this statement looks useless.

    ftp.cwd("SmythIN/"+TODAY)################################----- it breaks in here.
    ftp.cwd("subFolder") # or ftp.cwd("folderOne/subFolder")

    listing = []
    ftp.retrlines("LIST", listing.append)
    words = listing[0].split(None, 8)
    filename = words[-1].lstrip()

    # download the file
    local_filename = os.path.join(r"c:\myfolder", filename)
    with open(local_filename, "wb") as lf:
        ftp.retrbinary("RETR " + filename, lf.write, 8*1024)




ftp.cwd("SmythIN/"+TODAY)################################

its not SmythIN on all ftps it has different names like
ftp.cwd("X/"+TODAY)################################
ftp.cwd("Y/"+TODAY)################################
ftp.cwd("Z/"+TODAY)################################

how to write this...... thanks in advance.
