I’ve been having a fun holiday moving a small Web site into Joomla - using my Android smart phone. It has gone surprisingly well but for one thing.
I am finding it impossible to FTP files to and from the site. Dreamhost now uses Pydio, which I’ve been unable to make work, and the FTP clients I’ve tried time out.
I suspect that I’m missing something obvious, but the Dreamhost wiki seems to be quite out of date.
If someone could run down the proper settings for FTP I’d be grateful. Or suggestions for reliable Android FTP clients.
Oh, for Filezilla for Android!
What I did.
- logged in at Dreamhost
- Manage domains
- for the domain, choose WebFTP
- I am now kicked into Pydio, choice of a) have app installed, have the app add this domain b) install app and add this domain c) use the Web version of Pydio
- Tried b, then a, wouldn’t connect. Server details were NOT carried over to the app. Tried adding details manually, Pydio tries to log in and stalls with a complaint that "no Ajax Explorer installed on this path.
