Andftp uploading issue

Post by Shooter »

I like to use this app to upload videos to our site. Since the last droid update I can't up load videos or pics by just using the share application option and choosing andftp. But I can up load videos if I just go through the folder option in the andftp software. Any help would be great.

Do you have any error? or does the AndFTP item not appear in Share menu?

Could you try to setup and initial remote folder int AndFTP configuration such as / or /pics?

I have the same problem; SE Ray/Android 2.3.3.

Setup is SCP with remote dir.
When sharing a file from my gallery through AndFTP, the file is uploading fine, but returns 'Upload failed: Transfer failed'. The result is a file of 0 byte at my server.

Works fine from inside the AndFTP, but that wasn't really what I bought the application for.
Another thing I have found, is that when trying to upload from gallery, the 0 byte-file is called *.jpeg, while uploading from AndFTP, it is keeping its correct name; *.jpg . Don't know if that has something to say.

Extension is an option in "General" tab of Menu->Options (Append ... share/gallery) checkbox.

yet another issue when using scp and uploading a picture from the gallery. I was able to uplad a file by making it very small (see my previous post).

E.g. I do an upload for a picture called IMG_20131219_012923.JPG (on the phone it's called exactly like that, the file extension is in upper case letters).

on the remote machine after the upload is done successfully I get 2 files instead of one:

Code: Select all

ls -l
-rw-r--r-- 1 photos photos  26K Dec 19 01:38 IMG_20131219_012923.jpg.1387413492291
-rw-r--r-- 1 photos photos    0 Dec 19 01:39 IMG_20131219_012923.jpg
I thought maybe the file extension setting (in the main settings of andftp) is the mistake and unchecked it in andftp settings. there's a slight change, now I get a capital file extension like in the original file name, but still i get 2 files if I'm uploading one - one of them not ending in JPG or jpg but in a random number:

Code: Select all

-rw-r--r-- 1 photos photos  26K Dec 19 01:40 IMG_20131219_012923.JPG.1387413621961
-rw-r--r-- 1 photos photos    0 Dec 19 01:41 IMG_20131219_012923.JPG
I'm on android 4.2.1, google nexus.
The server is running ubuntu 12.04 openssh
