FTP Issues
« on: May 16, 2016, 16:19:44 PM »
So I am having multiple issues when trying to access my sites this didn't happen prior to the change.

FTP times out with error Connection timed out after 20 seconds of inactivity Failed to retrive directory listing.


Too many connections for this ip

I am trying to access the FTP to load themes for wp and coppermine and coppermine. I am not even trying to load images.

I am using the latest version of Filezilla

Open Filezilla and do the following:
Edit > Settings > Transfers > Concurrent Transfers
Set all 3 lines to 1

The problem usually crops up with pushing lots of small files over to cpanel. Some ftp clients will open multiple sessions in a effort to saturate your connection and get the maximum throughput. With tiny files, you tend to run into tcp session issues where the old session don't get a chance to expire quick enough for cpanel, and you end up with stale connection probably in a TIME_WAIT status versus Established, and get counted towards your max sessions. Load up to many, and cPanel blocks. Hope this helps.
Do your best and forget the rest!
