#12541 moreinfo Bug report

Obscene filepath leads to Auth Failed.

So, this is a weird one, haha. I often use filezilla to update set & forget based websites by simply grabbing the file i need to edit and re-upload back again. In this case i used a extreme long folder / path (local) to store files on. Consider it as a chaotic way of working but it works for me. I encounter a issue where the use of a long local path leads to a Auth faillure while the login details are correct.

  • I can login by FTP and view it's content
  • I cant grab a file for download because it will end up with a Auth faillure

When i change the local path from


to something simple as /desktop/something/ suddenly it does work.

I think this is a bug because filezilla either cant create the folder or cant write to the folder or the directory is just too deep. It's one of m. I think you could reproduce it by replacing your desktop to "JG\gamxo-main\gamxo-placeholder\admin\\private_html\\private_html\!\!\" and then try to swipe a file from a FTP folder to above folder.
