I am transfering a copy of the Joomla CMS (http://joomla.org) from my local development server (Windows XP, Professional, all updates, service packs) onto an FTP-Server (I think Proftpd, some Linux).
This is a regular FTP transfer (port 21), no SSL, no SFTP etc..
Fyi, the files I am trying to upload total 18 MB and they include many .php (= text), .css, graphics and pdf files. Roughly 700 files I'd say.
I am using 4 concurrent connections to upload, I had my settings on 8 before but lowering them to 4 didn't avoid crashing.
Somewhere in the middle of the transfer, the screen freezes. No bluescreen, nothing. It just freezes. There is no read from the HDD when it freezes, I have to manually power down to restart.
I updated FileZilla from 2.2.16 to the latest (2.2.32) today, hoping to solve this, but it didn't fix the issue - it continues to freeze.
I've also tried to transfer the files using Windows Explorer and it works just as expected. Even though through Windows Explorer it's very, very slow.
Right now I am testing the same files/transfer with FireFTP (http://fireftp.mozdev.org) and it's working as well. No freezing, no crashes.
What can I do to reproduce this crash?
