I hate to make a report of a publishing issue because they are so linked to individual server set-ups and so for that reason are difficult to troubleshoot. And I'd rather not post on the forum, because the number of such posts will give non-Rapidweaver users the idea that it's better to use another program. But while there is a way to report bugs directly to Apple, there's no way to report the issues to RW and the program only directs here.
No publishing issues with RW 7 until the upgrade to RW 7.4 18665b.
Now: running a credentials test shows the server credentials are valid.
Then, when publishing (slowest mode) the program tries to connect.
Two windows go by, the last one is, "checksums".
Then I get a message saying "cannot log in to FTP" server.
The program then freezes. The only way out is a force quit.
credentials check out during test, program then freezes at slowest speed during attempted ftp transfer.
