The Save to FTP module allows for saving a node as a .html file on a FTP Server.
After a node has been saved, and a path is given, if the user has been given the "Save to FTP" permission a form is added on the node edit page which is activated by selecting the "Publish to FTP" button.
How SaveToFTP compares to other Contributed Modules
SaveToFTP has one main purpose, export nodes as .html files to a FTP Server. In my use case, the FTP Server is also a web server, so I use this module to export static .html to a web server that doesn't have PHP on it. This way I have a static version of the site without the overhead of PHP/Drupal, but can still use Drupal for the content management.
