Remote Directory Doesn't Load

#1 Post by jdadwilson » 2021-01-29 16:30

Long time user of FZ. Never had a problem until now. I recently changed the file structure of one of my sites. One simple change was to rename my image directory from 'files_images' to just 'images'. There are several users of my site that have FTP access for uploading images. Thus, they have a cPanel FTP account for them to access directly to the 'images' directory.

Unfortunately on cPanel this required creating a new FTP account with new password. BUT, when I used the new account information to create the FZ site account FZ would link to the account but would only display the '/' level with nothing showing in the directory.

Further, if I use my master account to log into the /public_html/ level the remote directory panel will display the directory at the top level but will not display individual files at the top level.

This is a BIG problem for me as I now have several users that cannot provide their services for updating the site.

TIA for your assistance

FileZilla just shows you what the server says. If nothing shows up this either means there really is nothing, or the user accounts on the server aren't configured correctly.
