Default Cannot connect to ftp with cs4

Hi All,

For some reason all of the sudden my Dreamweaver disconnected and gave me the "ftp error occurred - cannot make host connection.

I tried re-typing in the correct info but still will not work. It's odd because I had just been using it not 30 minutes before and it was never shut off since then. I have access to the internet..it works just fine.

I checked the port, user, password, etc and all is good.

If anyone has any idea how I can fix this PLEASE help me out!

FYI: I'm a total newbie...I had someone else set this up originally so please keep that in mind. I'm not up on the technical end of this program.

Many thanks in advance!

download filezillza and try to connect with that, also go to your site via a browser to ake sure the server has not blocked your IP fo some strangesecurity reason. I have had it happen

Default cannot connect to server

Hi edbr,

Thank you for the response. I tried to download filezilla but it will not let me due to xp. I went to my website via browser and all is fine.

Is there anyway you could help me define my site? I thought I put the info in correctly but maybe not.

i ran an ftp check here www.infobyip.com and this is the result.


Connected to 64.6.107.219:21 FTP server
switched to passive mode
Changed remote directory to /domains/unionresourcecenter.com/
Directory listing:

drwx--x--x 8 ftp ftp 512 Oct 8 2012 .
drwx--x--x 6 ftp ftp 512 May 24 2012 ..
drwxr-xr-x 2 ftp ftp 512 Jul 8 2013 .htpasswd
drwxr-xr-x 3 ftp ftp 81408 May 5 12:36
awstats drwx------ 2 ftp ftp 512 May 5 12:36
logs lrwxr-xr-x 1 ftp ftp 13 Jul 14 2009
private_html -> ./public_html drwx--x--x 3 ftp ftp 512 Jul 14 2009
public_ftp drwxr-x--- 52 ftp ftp 118784 May 1 23:37
public_html drwxr-xr-x 2 ftp ftp 2048 May 5 12:36 stats

Does this tell you anything?

Thanks Again

not really to be honest. do you have access to your cpanel or control panel? check that the server hasnt moved or changed in some way.

if you have a local server with php, make a php file ie ftp.php and add this (edited to your details) just to test the connection

Code:
<?php
$username='usr';
$server='ftp.ur-domain.com';
$password='pswrd ';

$con = ftp_connect($server); 
ftp_login($con,  $username,  $password);
echo $con !== FALSE ? 'Connected' : "Couldn't connect";
ftp_close($con);
?>
this will return connected or not connected

Default Thanks

I greatly appreciate your help. I must have tried downloading the wrong version of filezilla...your link installed just fine.

I tested it and the server will not connect there either.

So must be something wrong with the server and not with me.

Thanks again for all your help. Take care!
