Okay, so I recently got some webspace (000a.biz), and I can't figure out how to put files on it using FTP. I tried using FireFTP and FileZilla, but they both give me the same problem: They copy the directory structure (subfolders), and the client says that they're moving the files, but they never show up on the remote server. It works fine when I use the web interface, but that has a pretty low limit as to the file size. Help?

FTP is a strange protocol.  It uses one port for a control channel and other ports for the data.

Try using passive mode maybe: http://slacksite.com/other/ftp.html

But I avoid FTP and haven't used it in years because it's not a secure protocol and use SCP instead.  But many free/budget hosts won't give you SSH access.

The client automatically goes into passive mode, so I've tried that, sadly. That's probably why the service is so cheap: It's practically impossible to get things on the server  Wink.

Maybe you can ask the service provider for help? or tell us who it is and maybe someone here has had some experience with it Tongue

The provider is 000a.biz, and their web application for the site works, but I can't use that for any big files. Big files like the ones I want to put up there.

this may be an illusion...

bulletproof ftp sometimes does something similar:

it creates the folder
it points itself to the new folder
it does a directory listing of this new empty folder AND CACHES THE RESULTS (i.e. nothing)
it uploads your file successfully
it displays a list of files in that folder FROM THE NOW OUT OF DATE CACHE showing an empty list.

so you gotta hit refresh (f5) to see the new files there.

not saying that's your issue, but it's worth noting.

I have music files, and I put it in \Music. After I use the client, I check the web-based system, which appears empty. Gimme a minute, and I'll post screenshots.

ok stupid me though that's the URL you bought not the hosting service, are you just looking for online backup space?

More or less. And it's called 000a.biz hosting. If you can give me free cloud storage that offers 11 GB of space, I'd like to see it. Check the pics here: http://s1182.photobucket.com/albums/x454/kansattica/

Windows live gives you 25gb if memory serves but you're limited to 50mb files, there's a program to let you integrate it into your windows explorer someone wrote as well,
out of curiousity a friend of mine and i had considered starting a paied BTC accepting cloud storage but couldnt gauge intrest in it well enough would anyone be interested in something like that

I also have some video files that are over 50 MB. Plus I want to be able to get at these files anywhere.

This is managed set up or an unmanaged setup?

Is this a VPS or a Dedicated server or just plain web hosting?

From what you said im going to assume its cloud hosting but is it managed or unmanaged?

It's plain web hosting that I'm trying to manage with an FTP connection.

I see the bandwidth limit on the cpanel; It says I haven't used any of my alloted bandwidth.

Amazon Cloud Drive offers 10GB of space and you only have to buy one 99cent mp3! Smiley

I signed up to try to troubleshoot for you but the password I used isn't even getting me on their FTP. :x

[edit]

I'm in and uploading to the FTP, here's what I have in FileZilla's Quick Connect dialog:

Host: http://ftp://ftp.000a.biz
Username: a000b_9084979
Password: ********

Experienced the same thing as you. It's possible they don't allow MP3 uploads or files over a certain size. Testing now.

I don't think you can upload outside of webroot, you have to upload to /htdocs/Music, not /Music. Also, you can't upload MP3 files, I had to change .MP3 to .TXT before it would let me upload a large file.

Thanks. Would it work if I compressed it so it's a .zip instead of a .mp3?

I would think so, most hosts allow zip files. I already deleted the email with my password though, so I'd have to sign up again to test, lol.
