Upload movie file to hosting account

Post by pTom » Fri Oct 18, 2013 3:25 pm

Hi guys

I am trying to upload a mov file to my on-rev hosting account. I have followed the instructions in this lesson: http://lessons.runrev.com/s/lessons/m/4 ... -using-ftp

I can't get it to work! I have tried it with a text file as well and nothing is doing.

Is there something different I should be doing?

My goal is to load a movie and/or a text file to the hosting account. Any advice on how to get this done?

Tom

Hi Tom,

Please find attached an example stack showing one way to upload a video file to on-rev hosting.

To do this I amended the example FTP script my previous forum post to upload binary files and show upload status feedback.

The scripts within the stack have been commented so you know what each section does.

Kind Regards,

Neil Roger

Thanks Neil

I tried it using my info and I am getting an error :?

I am using your stack and copied your code and repasted it in the same script, then commented out your original code, then filled in all of my personal info...confused....

Hi Tom,

I tried to directly connect to your server via an FTP client and I am initially receiving "Error 550 CAnnot change directory. Permission Denied" message.

What directory have you set your FTP up to connect to? Are you able to connect to this via an FTP client?

Kind Regards,

Neil Roger

I use Cyber duck. I am on a mac laptop (don't know if that matters)

Cyberduck is linked to ftp@lifetree.on-rev.com

I have been accessing and updating a text file on the same hosting site (again, don't know if that matters either?)

Do you need more info?

Hi Neil

I appreciate your patience with me! I guess Cyber Duck wasn't connecting properly to the ftp. I have that corrected and the issue is all good.

Your file and coding was a huge help cause there was a name issue with my reference to the ftp, which I didn't understand until you sent your stack and asked me about it.

Thanks so much!
