How to FTP data from server side includes

 2:38 pm on Nov 17, 2011 (gmt 0)

So I have a server that has data that can only be pulled from a .dll file.


Index.htm has multiple values in it presented in the following form.

Ex: <!--#exec tx=0047-->

I need to be able to FTP a flat file over that has the server side include values on it, and this server won't support any back end languages. Any ideas?

i'm not clear what you are asking about - are you trying to GET a file from the server or PUT a file to the server?

I'm trying to get a file from the server, and I can do that. However, the file is going to have the variables calls on it, not the actual variables. The server in question is just manufacturing equipment, so I can't download any extra languages on to it.

It'd be like FTP'ing over a PHP page, I'd only see "echo $variable", not the value of the variable. The more I look at this the more I think it's not possible.

so you need to HTTP GET a file from a server that does not support server-side includes?
what type of web server is it?
