upload new directory ask for replace

#1 Post by sand2710 » 2013-10-23 13:47

Hello,

I'm using Filezilla and it work pretty good but there's a behavior I don't expect nor understand, uploading a whole new directory sometime it ask for file replacement and it show different size.

My hosting doesn't support unzip so I'm uploading a lot of unzipped wordpress*.zip, the same hosting support up to 7 ftp connections so I'm using 6 threads (with 7 sometime it fail and reconnect).

Code: Select all

Linux hellspawn 3.10-3-686-pae #1 SMP Debian 3.10.11-1 (2013-09-10) i686 GNU/Linux

ii  filezilla                 3.7.3-1           i386              Full-featured graphical FTP/FTPS/SFTP client
ii  filezilla-common          3.7.3-1           all               Architecture independent files for filezilla

Are there any prior errors being displayed in the message log?

Hi @botg, sorry for my late reply, I've enabled the mail notify in the forum but didn't received anything (maybe it was in gmail spam, have just noticed the filter is going very aggressive lately).

Anyway, about the files, I noticed that when happen the files are all .po or .mo (gettext localization), in the filezilla options I've found only .po as auto, now added .mo .po and .pot as binary, let see if it happen again (and if there will be some log error I'll let you know).

Thank you!
(apologies for my poor English)

*edit*

Wow I got it wrong, to get the .po .mo .pot to be transferred as binary I've to remove them from the ascii list ? (so just the .po, but that weird because I've the problem with .mo also which weren't in the ascii list)

Size difference for ASCII files are expected, see Data Type.

Thank you @botg, sure I understand about the different sizes, but wasn't my issue, I was uploading a complete new directory so there should be not questions about replacing files, I guess having .po .mo handled as ascii fall in the:
FileZilla does not analyse files uploaded as ASCII in any way. So if you have mixed line endings, somewhat "unexpected" things can happen
(about the "unexpected things" not about the mixed line endings)
Maybe some non ascii char end the transfer and a new one with the same name start?

Setting the default to binary (instead of auto) and removing the .po/.mo from the ascii list seem to solve.
