Filezilla - could not start transfer


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?

<b>“I’m running proftpd …”</b> <br> <br>IMHO, that’s your problem. Check out <a href=“”>How To Use Filezilla to Transfer and Manage Files Securely on your VPS</a>, instead.

Hi ** (correction)

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. <br>You can use SFTP (FTP over SSH auth) to send your files.
