Filezilla Timeouts

Post by Angelofdeath » Sun Sep 21, 2008 11:04 am

hi there

I am trying to upload my websit to the free webspace however i keep getting timeouts.

i have about 1600 files to upload (about 5mb all up) and after about 100 files i start to get timeout errors and it eventualy locks me out for a few minutes

i have my concurrent connections set to 1 and timeouts set to 120secs can anyone shed some light as to why this is occuring

I'm not sure about the FTP programs you've listed. I use WinSCP because it can use three different protocols to access web sites. It allows me to select from FTP, sFTP or SCP. FTP works on most but if it works I'll use SCP which I think is the same as the Unix ssh.

Cheers,

Is this with the new server? If so, can you provide me with your login name and time of attempted upload and I'll have a look through the logs. Via PM, ofcourse. :)

I had a similar problem using any ftp program (well filezilla and windows ftp and os x ftp ...) with timeouts on ftp to the old server (home.exetel.com.au). I'm not sure if I had the same problem on the new server, but the problem went away when I rebooted my modem (billion 7300G)...

i found out that i had waaay to many concurrent connections which was causing this issue i managed to get around this by uploading a zip file and using the PHP unzipper script from this thead ---> http://forum.exetel.com.au/viewtopic.php?f=221&t=28789

Wouldn't it have been easier to adjust Filezilla's Max Concurrent transfer setting?

Code: Select all

In the FileZilla menu, click "Edit", then "Settings...".
Select "Transfers"... Then change "Limit for concurrent downloads" and "Limit for concurrent uploads".
