I usually do it with lftp, in a script like:
[michael at serafina ~]$ cat work/websites/foobar/lftp.upload
set dns:fatal-timeout 30;
set ftp:ssl-allow true;
open -u username,password host;
put upload/updating.php -o /index.php || exit 1
mirror --verbose=1 --parallel=1 --delete --reverse \
--exclude ".htaccess" --exclude ".htpasswd" \
--exclude "index.php" --exclude "updating.php" \
upload / || exit 1
put upload/index.php -o /index.php || exit 1
Then I'll call ./lftp.upload and be done.
