Except for the part where you're transmitting user logins over http rather than https. Dude, set up an SSL cert.

"Is it possible" - almost certainly. "is it a good idea to" - almost certainly not.

This script should work, but I concur with @slm -- the purpose of this site is to educate as much as it is to answer; explaining how this script works and why it solves the stated problem would improve this answer.

The fact that this question is also answered there doesn't mean that it's the same question -- to the contrary, in fact. Leaving this open.

comment How can I parallelise the upload of a directory by FTP?
Would rsync be an option? edit apparently not, as it doesn't work over ftp. Might be worth asking the destination server admin whether he's willing to give you sftp access - you wouldn't be able to log in, but rsync would work.

comment Does character 'ä' in usernames cause bugs in linux systems?
@MärtRang Thing is, nowadays absolutely everything speaks basic ASCII (THANKFULLY -- look up EBCDIC if you ever want nightmares), but beyond that there are about a gazillion different codepages that deal with nonstandard characters, and if both sides of a conversation don't know to use the exact same one, you can get pretty spectacular clusterfucks that take forever to dissect because each side insists the other side is talking gibberish. As Piskvor says, "one less thing to worry about". Pretty much every graphical frontend will use your real name nowadays anyway.

comment Is it bad when dvdisaster says that some sectors of a dvd disc are unreadable?
... That's a lot of false positives that software puts out. Not encouraging.
