Filezilla plugin w/4.x Mona

Recommended Posts

Following the instructions here:

http://wiki.uniformserver.com/index.php/Fi...2:_Introduction

 

I pulled UniServer_FileZillaFTPd_1.0.zip from SourceForge.

 

The download and install instructions, Option 2, say to find and copy a folder from the extracted info.

 

The indicated folder: UniServer_FileZillaFTPd_1.0, does not exist in the extracted information.

 

I suspect there were changes made after 4.1 Mona that aren't reflected in the wiki article.

 

An wiki update would seem to be in order?

I was a little concerned that the above folder does not exist! Hence downloaded the zip file and extracted its content, could not find any problems.

 

The Wiki I have updated only because the last line of this section had a link for folder UniServer this should have been in bold as shown

 

Options 2:

 

* Download file UniServer_FileZillaFTPd_1.0.zip from Sourceforge

* Save to any folder

* Extract files, navigate to folder UniServer_FileZillaFTPd_1.0.

* Copy its entire contents to the installed Uniform Server folder UniServer

 

If you are still having a problem download the file again, I can’t explain why in your particular case the folder does not exist.

 

All the best

I can't explain it either, however I post this in case someone else runs into the problem in the future.

 

The file downloads with no problem. This was never the problem.

 

This is the directory structure I get from extracting the _file_ UniServer_FileZillaFTPd_1.0.zip using 7Zip.exe

 

udrive

_|-docs

_|-filezilla_server

__|-basic

__|-disk_root

__|-filezilla_server_portable

__|-run_as_service

 

there are no other folders visible and 7Zip does not show any other folders inside the zip file itself.

 

I DO NOTE that the name of the zip _file_ itself is the same as the "missing" _folder_ name that prompted this thread. I hope we're not confusing file and folder names here... The wiki says "folder".

 

I got it installed by copying all files in each folder to the respective folder under my uniserver installation.

aside from problems with firefox/fireftp and username/password, which I don't think is related to the install, it works and I am able to run filezilla server under 4.3 Mona.

 

Hope this helps someone.

Thanks for the feedback I have an explanation for that disappearing folder:

 

I performed a quick test

 

Created a test folder containing UniServer_FileZillaFTPd_1.0.zip

 

1) Selected UniServer_FileZillaFTPd_1.0.zip and clicked the Extract button (--)

This produces folder:

UniServer_FileZillaFTPd_1.0

 

2) However if you select UniServer_FileZillaFTPd_1.0.zip and File>Open

Then select all the files and extract you get the structure as per your post

 

I like 7z and tend to use the lazy method 1) of extracting files.

 

All the best
