Writing an rsync shell script on Mac to continuously sync local directory with remote
I need to set up a shell script on Mac OS X Mountain Lion to sync a local directory to a remote directory (web server) using either an SSH connection (tunnel) or SFTP and have it run continuously every 30 seconds.
I also need to exclude certain files or folders from being synced.
The syncing would be unidirectional (mac -> webserver).
The basic parameters I need to have implemented are as follows:
Local path: /Volumes/path/to/local/directory Remote server: example.com username: someUser password: somePassword Remote path: /path/from/server/root/to/htdocs Files to exclude: '.ht*', '*.sublime-*' Folders to exclude: 'cache','administrator/cache'
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
