I tested different configurations.

The problem (which is not so important) remain.

I suggest :
-first proposal FZ consider a file with 0 byte in the directory as empty and avoid to launch a request of data

- second proposal : FZ give an advice concerning the empty files which are not systematically transfered

After investigation on my side,
- i suggest to close this topic between us. May be other people will give other arguments.

- i suggest that the solution consisting of taking into account the size received (0) to avoid the transfer will be studied.

I am François Bihan (french) and i initiate this topic following this trouble withe a joomla site loaded on Free.
Following the discussion i proposed to replace a empty download file by a empty file creation when the file is empty, as FZ was waiting for data. My proposal has not been agreed.

Following that, i use FireFTP included as a part of mozilla (same familly as FZ) and that work properly.

Hello François, I am french too

it's clearly a bug, the other ftp program work as expected.

But, FZ wait for data whearas the server already send a response "226 Transfer complete"

Why would you want to download an empty file anyway?

As i explained in the first post of this topic, some CMS needs empty files (for exemple Joomla).
When you download the contains of your site to save a configuration, you download thousands of files.
If the empty files are not downloaded you need to recreate them, with a risk.

yes it is very important to take an exact copy of a website and for a cms it's mandatory.

like M. Bihan has said, these empty files have a signification for those cms.

The simple existence of a file of a particular name in a directory (even an empty file) can have a meaning.

I started this topic and i come back for 2 raisons :
- after negative conclusion with FZ, I succeed to bypass the bug because, for CMS guppy (old version) i had only three files to reinstall. With the new version of guppy, it is necessary ro rebuild 60 files.
- i discover a solution concerning the operation of downloading CMS guppy when installed on the french FAI FREE :
https://ghc.freeguppy.org/articles.php? ... onfig=0#z2
.
Then :
- I give a solution for the people using FREE/GUPPY,
- I propose to FZ to reexamine this topic, even to understand why this solution work and possibly to propose this solution or best.
