Text Files lose formatting after upload

Reported by: wh33t Owned by:

I use Filezilla to download the current release of a
CMS system we have developed. I have verified that this
problem is not in the download of these files but in
the upload.

After download the files, I then upload the files to a
domain with Filezilla. All files transfer fine and
everything looks well, but when I try to access some of
the files I have uploaded I get error messages from

I then use Dreamweaver to check the script, and it
appears that Filezilla has removed all of the
linebreaks and whitespaces and characters spaces from
many of the scripts.

I repeat I have checked the files after the download
and they still have retained there formatting. It is
only the uploading process that seems to cause this.

Make sure FileZilla uses ascii mode for all text files.
FileZilla does not modify files during uploads, this is
caused by your server. It seems it cannot properly handle
ascii files.
