I’m one of the really lucky users who has had no real issues with the RW ftp upload process - until now!
I installed the latest v7.5 beta and immediately starting having problems with ftp upload stalling after 20 to 40 files had been uploaded. The ftp process would then time out. I went back a few RW versions as far as v7.4(?) but the same issue continued.
Having tried everything I sought help from Greg at Chillidog and he advised me to try sftp rather than my usual ftp. After initially failing to get anything to upload (file not found after a successful connection) I removed the /public_html/ path from the RW sftp publishing settings and all those 800 odd files (republish all) went up into the ether like lightening.
So, in my humble opinion, the ‘standard’ ftp upload in broken in this beta version - or at least it doesn’t work with Chillidog hosting.
During my frantic attempts to make the ftp work, I did try the new auto config option - which just sat there thinking about it.
Other than that, so far, this version is behaving OK.
