FileZilla cannot connect to FTP account


#1

I was in the middle of transferring my site from GoDaddy using FileZilla. There were over 12,000 files. About halfway through, it stopped working.

I use the exact same credentials on FileZilla as I do on the WebFTP and it will not connect.

I am going insane.

I have already tried changing the account type (FTP, SFTP, shell), and it doesn’t change a thing.

These are the errors I get (below): it’s either “critical,” or it times out, or it says something about the port usually being in use by something else. (I have left the port out entirely, that didn’t work either.)

I’m going insane.

WebFTP is not an option. I want it to pick up where it left off, and WebFTP is slower and has size limitations.

#2

I finally got FileZilla to work. I had kept my queue on queue so I could pick up where I left off when things went awry. Turns out, I needed to get rid of the queue all together, even though I had killed all connections, restarted, etc. (FileZilla keeps a queue in its memory…something wasn’t right about it. Maybe the queue itself or maybe I was unintentionally uploading MySql backups and the server didn’t like that???)
