Re: JFTP::store: Bad response Warning! - Failed to move file

I hope that I can help someone who is also battling with this issue.

I have eventually figured out what works for me. here goes.

var $ftp_enable = '1';
var $ftp_host = '127.0.0.1';
var $ftp_port = '21';
var $ftp_user = '***myusername***';
var $ftp_pass = '***mypassword****';
var $ftp_root = '/mysiteroot/index';

The important part is the ftp_host = '127.0.0.1';

once I changed my host to 127.0.0.1 instead of the ftp host name , things worked out.

I have tried this on five differnt joomla 1.5 sites running on two different servers on tow different continents.

I really hope this helps.

Thanks for the advice everyone,

I have tried all of the above, none have enabled me to upload an image or a file.
I now consistently get the following error messages...

for uploading an image:
Upload failed:(404)

When I try to upload a template.zip
Warning! failed to move file

My current settings are:
in my php.ini >>> safe_mode = Off
in my configuration.php >>>>
var $ftp_enable = '0';
var $ftp_host = 'ftp.mydomain.com';
var $ftp_port = '21';
var $ftp_user = '***myusername***';
var $ftp_pass = '***mypassword****';
var $ftp_root = '/var/www/html/';


I can change the global configuration through the joomla interface and I can create folders in the media manager so obviously my php config works OK.
What I find odd about my configuration.php is there are 50 variables, where as the global configuration offers 60 variable settings. I cannot find the variables that control the system / media settings part of global config. Are these stored somewhere else or is my configuration.php missing a chunk of code?

Where the function in Global Configuration relates to a Component for example the Media Manager the settings are stored in the jos_components table Item 19 in the case of Media Manager.

Hey all ...

Really stuck on the same thing ..

JFTP::mkdir: Bad response
JFTP::store: Bad response
Warning! - Failed to move file

Looking at configuration.php

var $ftp_host = 'ftp.snarkhunters.com';
var $ftp_port = '21';
var $ftp_user = 'username';
var $ftp_pass = 'password';
var $ftp_root = '/var/httpdocs'; //also tried '/httpdocs';
var $ftp_enable = '1';


I tried the above host = '127.0.0.1';

but no luck.

Any other ideas??

are you sure about the site root ??

for example on my one server it is : /www/public_html/

on the other it is : /www.mydomain.com/

Do you have an FTP client to go onto the server and check ?

recommend something like FileZilla. It works for me .

neither worked ...

I don't have a public_http drive, I have httpdocs instead.

I tried the domain name, didn't work.

Grr ... this is frustrating!

So let me get this clear, your first folder from your accessible root is called /httpdocs/ ?

and joomla is installed there ?? or is joomla installed on /httpdocs/funnyfolder/ - funnyfolder being whatever your joomla installation folder was ?

If so then your root should be /httpdocs/funnyfolder/

does that help ?

;o)

It does sound like a path problem frankly. I had the same trouble but after playing around found I'd stupidly put an extra forward slash in there.

When this message disappears you'll know that the location is correct providing your permissions are correct for folders.

Luke

sorry about that. looks like this one has us stumped...

is your folders inside the public html folders writeable ?

do you have some security feature on your server that prevents joomla from making changes to your folders ?

I am clutching at straws now, but maybe worth a thought.

The write permissions are fine ... joomla administration can make changes to configuration.php

it's just the mkdir and store stuff :(

luke

I undid the changes I made to your config.php. I will stay out of your FTP now.

I see a file called mod_paypal_donate.zip in your httpdocs root. Is this the module you are trying to install ?

are you pointing your installation wizzard to this file or did it end up there by accident with a previous failed upload ?

I need to go , be back shortly.

If you are on Googletalk, please Pm me your gtalk username.

else there is an anonomous gtalk link from one of my webpages (http://www.cameraschool.co.za) that will allow you to talk to me via Gtalk if you want .

I would really like to figure this one out and get to the bottom of it.

back in 20 mins

I have tried all these possible solutions and nothing has worked for me. When I first installed my site I managed to install a new template without all this bother, but now when I try to install a plugin I just keep getting these JFTP errors. Any help on this one is much appreciated.

if all else fails

install the module , etc manually.

here goes.

1. let us assume that you are trying to install a module - plugins and components should work the same,

2. unzip the module to a folder on your pc. - you should now have a folder called "mod_name_of_module"

3. open your favourite FTP client (i use FileZilla - google for it if you want it)

4 using the FTP client chagne to the folder called "modules" - it branches from your joomla root installation

5. copy the folder "mod_name_of_module" and all its subfolders into the module folder.

6. log in to your joomla administrtor page.

7. click : extensions --> module manger --> NEW (top right)

8 the module you installed should be visible here.

9 select and setup as per module instructions.


the plugins go into a folder called "plugin" and the Components into one called components.

PLEASE NOTE : installing things onto joomla this way could bugger up your joomla installation if you get things wrong. I take no responsibilty if you break your site. If you break your site , use your FTP client and go and and do what you just did. ie , if you copied a folder into joomla, go and delete it again.

scratching in your joomla folders with an FTP client if you do not know what you are doing , may be dangerous to your joomla installations health.

Thanks, that's a great last resort for me to take if need be. However, I would rather solve the problem. Anyone?

Components don't work the same way. :(

It worked for modules though.

I had been trying to install the JCE editor, and I kept getting that JFTP::store bad response warning, with the error below saying the file could not be found. On the recommendations of people in this thread, I disabled FTP in global configuration, and then retried installing the JCE 1.5 rc2 admin component zip file (which had been the install zip file that was previously failing) and immediately after disabling FTP, the upload and install function worked!

Curiously, I immediately uninstalled that JCE component, turned FTP back on, and retried it, and it didn't work! I then looked more closely at the FTP settings, and realized I had a typo in the FTP path!! Jeez! Anyways, changing that made the install work properly with FTP enabled.

Hope this answers the confusion for some people.

So basically check and see if we have made a typo? That the reason hundreds of us can't install plugins or components is because we all made a typo in the ftp path?

I am about to give up on joomla i think. This is one of maybe 5 issues I have at the moment with Joomla and my site at the moment and nothing I am doing or being advised is helping.

I have tried reinstalling a few times already on previous advice and I am still at square 1.

It's a shame because apart from the glitches I think Joomla is fantastic but the issues I have are prohibiting me from moving forward with the site.

So I'm gonna give the problems another day or two while I re-scour the forums for the answers, but if I don't have it fixed by the weekend, my weekend will be spent installing a new CMS.

(In case anyone was wondering ...

My problems are currently:

1. When someone tries to register they aren't getting past the registration form and they are not getting the validation email

2. If someone is registered and tries to log on they are still getting the Invalid Token page on registration.

3. I am getting errors with JFTP when trying to install components no matter what I try (Yes I have read all the forums on the topic, some 1256 posts all up <approx> and tried every single suggestion to no avail.)

4. RSS / Syndicate stuff gets a NOT FOUND response.

5. Getting BAD GATEWAY when voting on the polls.

6. I am getting DOCUMENT NOT FOUND errors when clicking on a link to an article, even though I created the article and the menu item flawlessly.

So I lied before ... 6 problems not 5.

*sigh*
