we won't support FTP forever -- it's _very_ deprecated.

_thankfully_ being _the longtimer_ here since the start,
I figured out what the issue was (and hey, it was my bug)
so I just sorted that out and brought the serverside back up.

let us know if still not working, please!

thanks, and v. sorry for that bug and the inconvenience to all!

happy moist-yet-crispy bird weekend!

Hi Tracey - thanks alot - its appreciated :)

We are aware that FTP is very deprecated!
However, unless there is a FTP replacement that offers the same features like file-resuming/queuing, it is without alternatives :(

Maybe it is possible to add those features to the HTTP uploads? :)

Thanks :)

totally agreed.

I've moved a bit in the .org (a ton over the years, actually - but am still
100% tech/coder/geek) so it wouldn't be for me to prioritize and do.

But the teams here _are_ at least quite aware the http uploader/editor needs a massive amount of rework and modernization -- the underlying tech is probably easily 8y+ old as its primary basis for the editor -- and 5y+ for the "new" http uploader.

It will take them some time to sort out and do...
I'll try to keep FTP going long as we can...

Hi Tracey and thanks.

We don't see your name in the postings as often anymore but it is nice to know you are still somewhere in the background. You have been very helpful to me and the others at OTR over the years.
Thanks again.

Crink On!

ohmigosh,
_thank you_ for that report!

verified/validated -- a 2nd (v. minor) server was down. back up, working again.

sorry about that. i'll sort out "red rows" now (our items do "task"-based updates and can "fail out" and "turn red" for admins like me)
Future FTPs will work, now too.

thx!
