FTP upload fail


(Antony Hateley) #1

I know there are already a few threads about this but I can’t see one that offers a solution to my particular problem.

Until recently I had no trouble uploading via FTP but now each time I try I get the following message:

Couldn’t upload to your FTP server: Upload failed (at start/before it took off)**

When I test the connection it says success but the upload always fails with the same message. I have spoken to my host and they have checked everything their end and it appears to be fine.

I’m using RW 6.3.8
Any ideas?

Any update on this yet? It just started doing this to me.

First off, update your Rapidweaver to v. 6.4

@LaPan

I am Using 7.02

I think I might have figured it out. I changed from passive to extended passive and it seems to be publishing I will check back in about an hour to see if it published.

OP was on v.6 that’s why I posted that.

ok it published, you have to change to extended passive publishing and it will publish. It won’t publish under any other conditions.
