Alert WildCard Upload Manager

The Convenient Way To Update Your Web Site (Available in Alert WildCard Professional only):

    The Upload Manager works very much like the Backup Manager, creating an Upload Job for each Search & Replace that you perform with the "Use Upload Manager" option checked on the Main Window.

    As shown above, all controls behave the same as the Backup Manager, though in the "Upload Job Information" box the "Current Remote Folder For Upload" is displayed.

The Upload Manager Controls Explained:

  • Upload Jobs List: This list displays up to 10 upload jobs that are created when you perform a Search & Replace operation. To select a job click on the job in this list.

  • Delete Job Button: Clicking this button will cause the selected job in the Jobs List to be deleted,

  • Delete All Jobs Button: Clicking this button will delete all jobs currently displayed in the Jobs List.

  • Upload Job Information: This box displays the date and time that the selected job in the Jobs List was created, as well as the Root Folder for the Search & Replace this upload job was created.

    List of Modified Files: Lists all of the files that were modified during the Search & Replace that created the selected upload job.

  • Job Details Button: Clicking this button will display the Details Window along with all the details of the selected Job. All settings you see are saved for later viewing when you perform a Search & Replace.

  • Upload All Files Button: Clicking this button will cause Alert WildCard to upload all files that were modified by the Search & Replace action that created the currently selected upload job.

  • Upload Selected Files Only Button: Same as above, but only the files you've selected in List Of Modified Files will be uploaded. You can select more than one file by holding down the CTRL key while you click on the file names with your mouse.

The FTP Settings Dialog Window:

    When you click either the Upload All Files button or the Upload Only Selected Files button, the FTP Settings Dialog is displayed. Here you'll need to enter the following information so Alert WildCard can connect to your Web site via FTP:

  • FTP Host Name: Enter the domain name of your FTP server here.

  • FTP Port: Enter the FTP port number your server uses, usually 21.

  • User Name: Enter your FTP account User Name here.

  • Password: Enter your FTP password here.

  • Initial Remote Folder: Enter the folder where the upload will start here.

    Now click "Okay" and the upload process will begin.
