I created an automator service to select a file and upload it to an ftp server. I have to do this regularly. But what I really need to do is delete the files in that remote directory before the file uploads.

Anyone know how, or if, that can be done?

What's in your Automator upload service?

Is it a "Run AppleScript" action? A shell script action? Commands to a Terminal window? AppleScript commands to an FTP client app?


What is your OS version?

I'm using a Transmit upload service. In on Yosemite (latest version).
