Web help needed

The server is hosted on HostM and they are very good a keeping Livecode Server current. I am assuming it is a Unix variant of some sort.  My desktop is a mac.

Let me tell you the details of what I am trying to do.   I have written a tool in livecode that takes a RideWithGPS route and generates a pdf and .csv files for the cue sheet.  (basic turn by turn instructions for cycling the route.)  This tools sits on the server side and processes requests via a form.   Basically 1 route at a time.

There are some 950 routes that are in my cycling clubs archive on RideWithGPS.  I am looking to generate updated pdf and csv files for all of the routes.  I was thinking about just cycling thru each of the routes, create the pdf and csv on my mac and just push the files onto the server.   It is the push them onto the server that I don’t know how to do.   I am looking for some guidance on both the mac and server side.

All of the examples I see are for a user interface form and that does not make sense for the number of files I need to move.
