Files fail to upload. The server shows a folder with 2 dots after it

#1 Post by dantodan » 2021-10-13 21:45

Upload of files now fails. I get the message, Transfers Finished “All transfers have finished 1 file could not be transferred”

Command: CWD /htdocs
Response: 250 OK. Current directory is /htdocs
Command: TYPE I
Response: 200 TYPE is now 8-bit binary
Command: PASV
Response: 227 Entering Passive Mode (213,171,193,5,32,7)
Command: STOR sean courtney berwick.jpg
Response: 553-Can't open that file: Invalid argument
Response: 553 Rename/move failure: No such file or directory
Error: Critical file transfer error

all i get in the server window is a folder with 2 dots after it and a nore saying "Empty Directory Listing"

This is doing my head in as I have lots of files I want to send up :( Please help me

Looks like the server is on the fritz. It responds to the upload command with error messages.

Code: Select all

Command: STOR sean courtney berwick.jpg
Response: 553-Can't open that file: Invalid argument
Response: 553 Rename/move failure: No such file or directory
That's a case for the server support. You need to send a bug report their way.

Thank you Boco. I will report a possible bug as you suggest but at first sight of FZ Bug Reporting, it looks complicated and I am busy putting together notes and screenprints etc about my problem so I am putting off trying to report the bug for a while. :shock: No don't worry I will contact FZ about this

We unfortunately cannot do anything about server errors. If there's a three-digit number before the message, it comes straight from the server. Everything starting with 5xx is a permanent error and will not resolve on its own. FileZilla wants to transfer, but the server seems to have trouble accessing its filesystem, somehow.

Thank you Boco
I have sent a bug report to FZ #12558: Re: Files fail to upload. The server window shows a folder with 2 dots after it and the note: Empty Directory Listing. At least I think I have notified the bug to FZ. I cannot find my bug entry in the tracker :roll:
