FTP Keeps Stalling When Uploading

Postby jingaling » Tue Oct 11, 2016 1:36 pm

When uploading anything to a website, the FTP doesn't seem to be working correctly. Basically, files upload but then they stick on a status message of:

"Status: Retrieving directory listing of "/web/%domain%/public_html"

It then waits around 30 seconds, the response times out and it uploads 2 more files, then the process repeats. So uploading a website with a few thousand files would take days to complete instead of minutes.

I've tried changing the transfer mode to Active, but that hasn't resolved the issue.

Has anyone else come across this issue, and how do I fix it?

Centos 6.8 x64
VestaCP 0.9.8-17

You can try to disable the iptables. I had the same problem because of some closed transfer ports (arround 2000 to 2100).

Code: Select all

service iptables stop

Then check again and let us know, if it works.

Don't forget to reenable the firewall with

Code: Select all

service iptables start
