FTP not working

Postby Elaborate on Wed Apr 01, 2015 12:41 am

Hi!
I just tried to upload a comic strip - I usually try to update on April Fools', even if I haven't done anything the entire year - but FileZilla gave me an error message (error 530 - Login authorization failed).
Similarly, when I tried the back-up solution of uploading via the siteadmin, I got a "500 error".
Advice?

Maybe the server went down temporarily. Can you try logging in again?

I've tried several times over the day. I can contact the server fine, it's just that the password for my account doesn't seem to be accepted.
I tried setting a new password at the siteadmin earlier, but back in the day, I used a Yahoo mail address, and I guess there will be a delay before I get the mail...

Shame, because I pulled an all-nighter so I could actually post something early on April Fool's for once, instead of sneaking it in in the evening...

Still no progress on FTP problems.
Still impossible to upload comics at Siteadmin.
Still no message from password change showing up on my Yahoo mail.
And Quickadmin doesn't let me in (though normal siteadmin does), so I can't check that the mail address is correct.


Here's a copy of what FileZilla says, btw:

I've been able to log in yesterday and today, so it seems like the server's working. If you can't reset your password, you'll have to PM an Admin about it.

Last time I updated, a few days ago, net2FTP worked, but slowly.. and it let me upload comics (which had been working fine the previous week) but triggering an update on quickadmin didn't work.. the file just disappeared from the comcis FTP folder. so I just used fireFTP and it worked. Now I can't get net2FTP to load at all so it's down to just fireFTP. I don't like only having one working way to upload, there's gotta be a backup. Siteadmin hasn't worked in a LONG time (gives you 500 error) but in the past it has gone long periods of time without being functiona. I think it's something they consider obsolete and are trying to move beyond.

If you're looking for another FTP client, try FileZilla.
