Can't seem to get install folder to stay in place!!!!!!

Post by Victorious1 » Thu Dec 21, 2006 12:08 pm

I'm trying to update my forum from 2.0.19 to 2.0.21 and every time I try it appears that the install folder will not upload in the FTP.

It just keeps saying upload failed in the 3rd window of the FTP.

What do I do?

sorry, i cannot help, but both your FTP links don't actually link to a valid site.

Does it give a more specific error message than failed? Clutching at straws here given that we have no information to work from but check to see if any of the files are 0k in size - if so do not upload them and if there are any .htaccess files in the directory try deleting them before uploading.

My advice is to stop trying to upload the whole folder, and upload the files individually, for the install part of the phpBB package.

that might work, but you have to create a new folder on the server named install first, then you can upload the update_to_latest.php file to that new install folder.

What FTP client are you using? If this helps, I use Filezilla.
