Web site visited during files upload

Hi!

I use WinSCP for updating my php website. I get regulary php parse-errors in php-error log. The reason is that people visit website during the file being copied...

Is there any setting which would result in uploading file to a temporary filename and than rename it automatically?

If not, what are the options?

(I think about having 2 copies of website on the server. One for production and one for uploading. After each upload, I would run some script to update the production copy).

Thanks for WinSCP, great software!

You can achieve this by using SFTP and forcing WinSCP to enable resumable transfer for every file. Read documentation.

Thx, for reply!

I tried this. During the upload the target file is deleted, the upload-in-progress file has tmp name "filename.filepart".

Problem is, that the original file is deleted: so the website during upload is broken - because the file is missing.

Is there a way to setup WinSCP not to delete the original file, till the upload is complete?


My environment:

SSH protocol version = SSH-2
SSH implementation = OpenSSH_4.3
Encryption algorithm = aes
Compression = No
File transfer protocol = SFTP (v3)
------------------------------------------------------------
Can change permissions = Yes
Can change owner/group = No
Can execute arbitrary command = No
Can create symlink/hardlink = Yes/No
Can lookup user groups = No
Can duplicate remote files = No
Can check available space = No
Native text (ASCII) mode transfers = No
------------------------------------------------------------
Additional protocol information
The server does not support any SFTP extension.
