    FTP Upload Error

    Post by daveh » Sat 06 Jul 2019 2:45 pm

    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.
