Filezilla - could not start transfer

Posted December 13, 2013 18k views
Hey, I just tried to upload my Laravel app, but only 5 of the 7849 files were transferred, the other ones say: "Could not start transfer". I'm running proftpd on ubuntu 12.04, setup using the guide on your website. Any ideas what the problem might be?

I, sometimes the same happens with me when I try send a lot number of files. Try compact in a ZIP file and send again.
You can use SFTP (FTP over SSH auth) to send your files.
"I'm running proftpd ..."

IMHO, that's your problem. Check out How To Use Filezilla to Transfer and Manage Files Securely on your VPS, instead.
