Save your web captures to your FTP server

October 25, 2019

You can now get your screenshots uploaded directly to your cloud storage through Apps, including to your own FTP server.

To start getting your captures uploaded to your FTP server, follow these steps:

  1. Configure your FTP server
  2. Configure your App
  3. Use the App

Configure your FTP server

Make sure your FTP server can be accessed from the Internet. We recommend that you create a separate user for Blit. This user needs to be permissions to create folders and files, and to navigate in the folders created.

Create an App

In the left menu, there is a new entry for Apps (beta). There, you will see all the Apps that you create. Click on Add an App.

Enter the username and password used by Blit to authenticate to the server. Add the FTP port number.

You can enter custom folder and file names that will be used to for each image. We support a number of variables to create dynamic paths, see our previous post for more details.

Before you save the App, click on Verify to make sure it is configured correctly. Blit will attempt to upload the file blit.png to the folder you specified. If an error occur, we will display the error message we received.

Use the App

Your App will know show in the list of Apps. When you edit an existing capture or schedule a new capture, there is a new field for Apps. Click in the box to see the list of Apps available, or start typing its name to filter the list.

Use multiple apps

That’s it! Now your captures will be saved to your FTP server automatically. If there is any issue during the upload, we will send you an e-mail.

If you want to use different folders of files, you can create multiple Apps with the same FTP server.
