FTP Upload Error

From build 3044 the development baton passed to Mark Crossley. Mark has been responsible for all the Builds since. He has made the code available on GitHub. It is Mark's hope that others will join in this development, but at the very least he welcomes your ideas for future developments (see Cumulus MX Development suggestions).

FTP Upload Error

Post by daveh »

I see this mentioned in the known problems but I'm uploading here in case it's different to what has been reported before. Every so often I get the error below and I have to restart MX to fix it. it's just a temporary problem with the connection to my web space. Could MX not just try again at the next upload interval? I can post the MXdiags if it's wanted.

You could try updating to the latest release, the FTP connectivity had some love in the last few releases iirc.
