Information from shellhacks.com.

Download

The following command recursively downloads your site with all its files and folders from FTP server and saves them to the current directory.

wget -r -l 0 -nH -X folder_to_skip ftp://user:pass@ftp.server.com

 

option description
user FTP username
pass FTP password
ftp.server.com IP address or domain name of an FTP server
-r Recursive retrieving
-l Maximum recursion depth (0 = unlimit) (default = 5)
-nH Disable generation of host-prefixed directories
-X exclude a list of directories

Backup

Now you can compress the folder with your site as follows:

tar -czf site-backup-$(date +%Y%m%d-%H%M%S).tar.gz yoursite.com

Install pluxml on raspberry pi

I am using nginx + php7 + pluxml following these 3 links:

  1. https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentation/remote-access/web-server/nginx.md
  2. https://blog.norore.fr/index.php?article13/pluxml-nginx-et-php-7-sont-dans-un-bateau
  3. https://docs.nginx.com/nginx/admin-guide/security-controls/configuring-http-basic-authentication/
$ sudo nano /etc/php/7.3/fpm/pool.d/www.conf
[www]
user = www-data
group = www-data
listen = /run/php/php7.3-fpm.sock
listen.owner = www-data
listen.group = www-data
;listen.mode = 0660
$ sudo nano /etc/nginx/sites-available/default
server {
        listen 80 default_server;
        listen [::]:80 default_server;

        # Add index.php to the list if you are using PHP
        index index.php index.html index.htm index.nginx-debian.html;

        server_name _;

        location @handler {
                rewrite ^/(.*)$ /index.php? last;
        }

        # pass PHP scripts to FastCGI server
        #
        location ~ \.php$ {
                include snippets/fastcgi-php.conf;
                fastcgi_pass unix:/run/php/php7.3-fpm.sock;
        }

        # deny access to .htaccess files, if Apache's document root
        # concurs with nginx's one
        #
        location ~ /(data/configuration|version|update|\.ht) {
                deny all;
        }
}

Then restart both services.

 

Interesting problem : Nginx sucessfully password protects PHP files, but then prompts you to download them

Answer : The problem is a fundamental misunderstanding as to how nginx processes a request. Basically, nginx chooses one location to process a request.
You want nginx to process URIs that begin with /admin in a location block that requires auth_basic. In addition, URIs that end with .php need to be sent to PHP7.
So you need two fastcgi blocks, one to process normal PHP files and one to process restricted PHP files.
