Hi,

I'm new to Macs (loving them btw) and I'm not sure how to automate the lauchng of a program.

I have an FTP server backing up some sites but I only want the server software to load when the auto backups are scheduled. I've taken a look at Automater but not sure what to do. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

I'm also looking to write a script that will moved the dowloaded files into a directory depending on the site backed up. Also no idea where to start!

Thanks for your help!
