View Full Version : FTP connection

09-08-2011, 08:38 AM
I'm getting desperate!

I'm using Dreamweaver MX 2004.

I'm trying to upload a friend's site (domain& hosting with same company).
However, I constantly get the "FTP error - cannot make connection to host" message. I've unchecked the FTP PASSIVE option and tried changing the SERVER COMPATABILITY option but no luck.

I've also removed the ftp from the host box as well as removing the url prefix then put it back on!

I've contacted the hosting company and received the following -

Thank you for your email.

We were able to connect to FTP using the following information:

Ftp host: ftp.the-recessionista.com
Ftp username:the-recessionista.com
Ftp password:XXXXXXXXXX

I'm at a loss as to what to do now, so any help would be much appreciated.

BTW I know there is a forum for this but on the basis of visitors, trust I'll get more responses on the general.

Many thanks

download filezilla and try with that using the settings your hostar gave you, that will be a check and a good way to upload (its free)
