I used to use the simple webFTP that was pre-configured for my server from the Web Panel.
That is now gone and understandably I have to log into the new webFTP.
Where would I find the following answers:
Host: (I know it is seoul.dreamhost.com but let’s just say I didn’t know to check the source of emails from my website, where would I find it on the web panel?)
Port: (default is “21”, but I don’t know if that’s correct)
Login: I know the FTP user account name
Password: I know the FTP user password
Start (default is “/”, but I don’t know if that’s correct)
Protocol: (options are ftp and sftp, default to former)
Active: (options are true and fals, default to latter)
I’ve attempted a small variety of options, using the host name, my ftp username and password, and both sftp, and ftp.
I also tried that with /home/USER as the Start field.
This should be documented, at minimum, in a sticky on the Beginner’s Forum.
slightly pissed off user, who just wanted to upload a simple module to drupal, who instead finds himself on a quixotic journey through dreamhost’s sprawling-yet-incomplete interfaces, spotty documentation, and poorly implemented web tools, finally having to troll a beginners forum for something that should be easy as pie.[hr]
Apparently fully qualified domain names aren’t accepted in the Host field.
I used just “seoul” and it let me in.
That’s the first time ever that a non-FQD has worked when a FQD did not.
Imagine my surprise.
