I broke Rapidweaver's Publishing feature


(Chris Gill) #1

So my Rapidweaver publishing has been a crapshoot in terms of successful attempts since Rapidweaver 6. I kept receiving “weird server response” 3/4 of the time and randomly a successful upload would take place. All successful uploads stopped working altogether 2 days ago.

Today, I contacted my hosting company (DreamHost) and they believed my site was bigger than my 60MB limit. So they had me upload a phprc file to increase my upload file size. Now Rapidweaver is not working at all. I went back and deleted the phprc folder off my server. Still hung up when testing or publishing.

I can access the server via an FTP client like Filezilla or FlashFTP so I know it’s not on the server’s end.

Steps before I broke it:

Tested Rapidweaver>Prefrences>Max Concurrent Uploads (tested all values)

Uploaded phprc file per these instructions: http://wiki.dreamhost.com/PHP.ini#Increasing_the_filesize_upload_limit

Uploaded my first Easy CMS page.

That’s it.

Any insight is helpful.

I also use Dreamhost, and don’t run into any issues (I use SFTP w/SSH keys). So I’m surprised about this. How are you uploading? FTP, FTPS or SFTP?

I should add that the PHPRC file is not related to FTP - it’s simply to change the file upload size allowed via PHP (which RW does not use for uploads).

If changes no longer publish at all, is there anything that has changed in your network configuration in the last few days? Passwords or network configurations?

nikf, I don’t know much about the various protocols…have always used ftp. I use a local server, same I have used for years, and where my RW site is currently posted. The old one still seems to be up: http://www.raymack.com

Hey Nikf

I did add a Security Certificate to the account. Only other thing IO can think of that has changed.

I upload:
Protocol: FTP

Yes, probably; it has been MONTHS since the last file was uploaded, from a different machine and different OS X. However, the destination server/pw etc. has NOT changed in years!

Nothing like that has changed. It’s really odd.

In addition, my other websites will upload to the same server. So it’s isolated to this project.
