Unable to create new folders

#1 Post by dbillings » 2020-03-18 21:01

Currently unable to create new folders in the remote directory tree. Continue getting a Command: MKD and a Response: "501 Invalid number of parameters" when I attempt to do so. Seems to be an issue that just started this week. Anyone encounter this and have a solution to resolve?

Please post a complete and unmodified log.

Do the directories have any spaces or non-US (7bit ASCII) characters in it? Some servers don't support them very well.

Yes, they contain those characters. Each time I select a folder in the directory to create a subfolder (i.e. Ankeny PD) an additional folder is automatically created as show in the attachment with the blue curser next to the blank folder at the top of the directory. This folder does not exist until I rt. click on an existing folder.

Which version of FileZilla are you using? Make sure it's the latest version, as of writing this it is no smaller than 3.47.2.1
