To activate this option in order to see hidden files, press: Ctrl+Alt+H or you can also activate this option by going to: preferences => Panels => Show hidden files In the ...

I am going to give this a shot. From a filesystem point of view: FAT32: Maximum number of files: 268,173,300 Maximum number of files per directory: 216 - 1 (65,535) Maximum file size: 2 GiB - 1 without LFS, 4 GiB - 1 with NTFS: Maximum number of files: 232 - 1 (4,294,967,295) ...

If it were a folder permission error you would connect but get an error about permissions. First enable WP_DEBUG in wp-config If you have root access, check your php error log, and syslog in /var/log From a shell, try FTPing to localhost does it work? Can you read and write to your plugins folder? Now also try from a remote machine FTPing into the server ...

You are probably seeing a difference in line-endings. When transferring a file in ASCII/Text mode (as opposed to "Binary mode") then most FTP clients will convert/normalise line-endings to the OS being transferred to. On Classic Mac OS (9.x and earlier) the line-ending char is simply \r (ASCII 13), on Mac OS X this changed to \n (ASCII 10), on Linux it is \...

You'd need a fully scriptable FTP client to do that, NcFTP, LFTP (not sure if it works on windows), Kermit FTP, would work or CoreFTP as @paulmorriss observed. More info on a similar question over at serverfault which has a few other ideas like using powershell which might interest you.

Amazon IAM ( http://aws.amazon.com/iam/ ) service gives you the ability to create accounts for students with separate password/credentials and with access to only specified AWS resources. You can create one account for all students there, or create a group called "Students" and assign all your students to that group. After doing that you need to specify an ...

I had the same problem, I found a number of solutions in various forums, none of which helped. My credentials were OK but they were being rejected; they worked in Filezilla. Somewhere I found a reference to a small plugin called 'SSH SFTP Updater Support', which fixed my problem. After installing this the option for SFTP is added and you can choose SSH2 ...

After the connection is established, if there are hidden files not being shown, on the bottom of the remote panel itself, I noticed there's a small text regarding the number of hidden files. When I clicked this text, those files showed up. After finding Cʜᴜɴ's answer, I also tried the shortcut he mentioned: CTRL + ALT + H It actually hides the files if ...

The real filename would be exactly the same filename you originally named it. Your only limitation is that set out by the operating system and the filesystem. OK, so looking at Comparison of file systems if you only care about the main players file systems: Windowz (FAT32, NTFS): Any Unicode except NUL and / Mac(HFS, HFS+): Any valid ...

I've just started getting into hosting and am using WHMCS. You can find more info at http://www.whmcs.com/ You can put clients into it, separate by servers, keep track of products/services for each client, custom notes for the client or if they have multiple domains you can write notes for each domain on a client. It can automate a lot of things but If ...

Its likely that they do not want to spend the time considering all of the possible security issues, so your request was denied. Network Admins are under a lot of pressure to maintain a secure network against unknown threats. You should look into using a server or service that allows you to connect in via port 80 or 443, but will then forward your traffic ...

Absolutely. Your .htaccess file is located in the root directory of the website and can be accessed via FTP.

No it's not possible. GitHub Pages is for intended for Git users and projects, it is not intended for people looking for a free web host. To use GitHub you must use a GIT compatible client or the terminal. If you want to host your website on GIT then you need to add a repository and upload your files using git commit and git push, then once you have ...

I think you’ll find that those are IP addresses for Google Cloud Platform, meaning that it’s not Google themselves but third parties running their own code on Google’s platform. So Google isn’t trying to hack you, it’s selling computing services to the public, some of whom are hackers.

Overwrite permission denied suggests that DreamHost forgot to enable AllowOverwrite on the new server, which means you can't edit existing files, only upload new ones. To fix it yourself, add the following lines to the .htaccess file in your root directory. You'll have to open the existing .htaccess file if there is one, copy the contents to your clipboard, ...

It's not a bad workflow. Instead of using Coda's publish feature I would consider using Git instead. There are many advantages to this. Pushing changes to your server is just as easy. It gives you source control and branching. Coda's publish system could choke with local wordpress versus server updates resulting in overwritten files. In Git you just ...

Users that don't "ssh" can login to cpanel if their host supports it and use the File Manager there. It will delete files a lot faster. Uploading files over http also seems to be faster in some cases.

You can quickly delete directory or files from FTP using Windows Explorer. Open a Windows Explorer window; press Win+E. Click to select the address bar. Type the FTP site’s address. (example-ftp://ftp.example.com) Press Enter. Input your FTP ID and PWD. Press Enter. now you can access all files and directory. Find and delete quickly.

The FTP protocol requires one of the two computers involved in the transfer to open a data connection on a second port in order to complete the transfer. In 'Active' mode, the client opens a port and the server connects back to the client. In 'Passive' mode, the server opens a port and the client connects to the server a second time. Problems with this are ...

You can close connection on your server using some commands: netstat + kill netstat -na kill PID tcpkill tcpkill -i eth0 host 10.0.0.1 killcx (http://spamcleaner.org/en/misc/killcx.html) killcx <ip>:<port> tcpdrop command (FreeBSD): tcpdrop myhost.net:2353 example.com:ftp

Plesk is pretty good about setting up the proper security settings between domain accounts and subdomains, including FTP access. Many sites do grant FTP access to 3rd parties that they work with because there's not as much risk with FTP, providing that root access isn't permitted, which can be set in Plesk (as it seems you already have done). I would ...

If you can open access via ssh between your servers, then using rysnc to transfer the data would be much faster than ftp. Rsync automatically transfers data in batches and if you have to run the transfer multiple times, it only has to transfer the data that has changed. Unfortunately, rsync does not work over ftp but this question on serverfault suggests ...

FTP is an ugly protocol because it uses dynamic ports, which either needs a wide open firewall or specific configuration within the FTP clients. Also it sends login information in clear by default and the encrypted version FTPS produces even more problems with firewalls. These things together make firewall admins hate the protocol and they better deny ...

When you create a FTP user account in cPanel you assign it a ownership directory, if that folder happens to be a child directory of the master account then you won't be able to go higher. e.g /home/your-username/public_html/new-user/ Will not be able to view the parent public_html. This is a security messure and something you shouldn't need to turn off. ...

Most panels have a File Manager feature that will allow you to upload, download and edit any file on your server. It is very much like a web based FTP client. I know for sure cPanel and Plesk have this tool, so I would assume other will too (since most panels this days try to mimic cPanel and Plesk). Keep in mind though that if you have to upload/download ...

Very similar question on StackOverflow here If you're looking to find the webroot of your application running its app-root/runtime/repo. However, I would strongly suggest you make changes through Git if you're altering code. If your uploading things like pictures or other data, you'll want to store them in your $OPENSHIFT_DATA_DIR which is located ...

Mate, you are in your web root. wp-admin wp-content wp-includes and rest of the files are the root directory of your WordPress. Level above are rest of the pages on server. From what I see, you just have privilege to access that folder and that's it.

.ftpquota is a file used by your FTP deamon on the server, if you want it deleted, you need to disable the FTP server running on your hosting.

Yes. Don't transfer UTF-16 files in ASCII mode; use binary mode to avoid data corruption here. FTP's transformation of \r\n to \n will corrupt the remainder of the file if it happens to contain the single character ഊ or the sequence ㄍਰ or many others of the same class. Please note that this is not an intelligent transformation, and the reverse ...

Yes, this will cause clients to re-download when the asset has expired a minute later. This runs under the assumption you've switched e-tags off (see below). The downside is people are now burning up more bandwidth on your site and your page speed will tank. This will at worst cost you more and at best still cause a poor user experience. If someone spends 2 ...
