Why does lftp mirror display chmod files
I am very new to lftp so forgive my ignorance.
I just ran through the space of my lftp script, which basically consists of a line like this: mirror -Rv -x regexp - just existing --only-newer --dry-run / local / root / dir / remote / dir
When he prints out what he is about to do, he wants to chmod a bunch of files - the files I grabbed from svn never changed and should be identical to those on the server.
My local machine is Ubuntu and my remote server is Windows. I have several questions:
- Why is he trying to do this? Is it trying to map file permissions from local to remote?
- What happens when it tries to chmod the files? As far as I understand, Windows does not support chmod - would it just gracefully and leave the files alone?
