An export channel consists of a name, a target URL as well as an option for exporting with or without a hierarchical directory structure.
The following schemes resp. protocols are supported:
file – local filesystem of the server
ftp – File Transfer Protocol
ftps – FTP with SSL/TLS
sftp – SSH File Transfer Protocol
http – HTTP PUT
https – HTTP with SSL
The URL may contain username and password, e.g.: ftp://user:email@example.com/target_path/
flat: The export takes place into the directory of the target path. The respective filename will be appended to the target URL. Example: “ftp://user:firstname.lastname@example.org/target_path/clouds.jpg”
hierarchically: The export takes place into a hierarchical directory structure below the target path, based on a category tree. The directories will be created if necessary. Example: “ftp://user:email@example.com/target_path/Topics/Nature/clouds.jpg”.
Export to a hierarchical directory structure is not supported for HTTP and HTTPS.
