I am stumped. I downloaded my FTP files to my desktop from Godaddy. I initially connected to the Dreamhost server with Filezilla and several file folders appeared to transfer.
Eventually, though, I got an error:
Response: 530 Sorry, the maximum number of connections (10) for your host are already connected.
I went to the manage users panel and "killed the FTP" after reading in a forum that that was the thing to do in this case, but it did not help.
Then I switched the setting to SHTP under "edit" in the manage users panel and attempted to upload using cyberduck.
I am on Mac using OSX, if it matters. I know very little about the upload process and am now kicking myself for not just saving my content, what little of it there was, in a different way before switching hosting.
Thanks so much for your help!
