Recursive ftp upload/download

Today we have to upload the whole directory tree to our site. How we can do it? If you use regular ftp command, this task becomes tedious and exhaustive job. You have to recreate each directory, change to each directory locally and remotely and perform mput or mget. If you have complex directory structure it is almost impossible to do that without a mistake. Solution? – Use lftp instead. It has mirror feature which allows to copy entire directory tree. To upload, use -R switch.
