FTP error

Since I started using infinityfree I seem to notice FTP is dropping out every 20 seconds or so. A file which used to upload in around 50 seconds max is never unzipping. Is this a client error, server rate limit or bug? I'm uploading a mediawiki extension and the zip file is already on the server.

  • The server terminates FTP connections after 20 seconds of inactivity. The last word in that sentence is key, because it means that a file upload which is already in progress will never be interrupted because of this.

    Also, please note that FTP does not actually support extracting archives on the server. File managers make it look like it's possible, but that's just the file manager doing the heavy lifting, not the FTP server.

  • Thanks. I'll upload them after locally extracting them then

  • Hi Maindar,

    Are you attempting this through the built in FTP file managers or an external as i would suggesting one of the built-in file manager's to try and upload it that way.

    Best Regards,

    Step 1: fill in the FTP credentials.
    Step 2: click Connect.

    Done, you should now be connected.

    Note that you may get a dialog warning you about an invalid SSL certificate. That's normal, just accept the invalid certificate and you can connect.

    I understand that you have an issue but I don't understand why. The FTP server itself is working fine (otherwise the file manager wouldn't have worked either). I don't think you're the first ever to have this issue, but we've never been able to reproduce it or figure out why some people have issues connecting to FTP.

    Perhaps it's poor configuration on your end or an issue with your internet provider, maybe it's something on our end. Until we can confirm on our end the issue exists, we can't do anything about it.

  • When I try to connect via Filezilla, always show the below error.

    Status: Connecting to 185.27.134.11:21...
    Status: Connection established, waiting for welcome message...
    Status: Initializing TLS...
