Crashes when uploading through SFTP

FileZilla "crashes" sometimes, when trying to upload through SFTP. When approx. 200+ files or end of queue, it can without no reason simply crash.

Happend while trying to upload Wordpress 2.3, which then had to be tried a few times, before succeed.

For reproduce, try either upload the folders wp-admin+wp-content or wp-includes.

Attached some more details (zipped), hope it helps a bit.

Have tried again (using build 2007-10-09), but seems like it still happens, when uploading through SFTP.
Would like to give more details if I'm able to - is there any debug-mode-thingy?

Please describe how you are starting the transfer.

Furthermore, what's the number of simultaneous transfers and uploads set to in the settings?

comment:5 by stingbat, 16 years ago

Simply dragging the folders from the local part to the remote part, within FileZilla.

Then it transfers like it should for about 200 files, and then crashes...

The simulaneous transfers are set to 2 (the default value), upload to 0 (the default value).


Tried today to change simulaneous transfers to 1, which worked out fine. Afterwards I set it back to 2, and haven't been able to make it crash. Don't know if it has anything to do, or if today is just "special". Will make some more test, and return with an update.

I cannot reproduce it here on multiple different machines and you appear to be no longer able to reproduce it. This is a good indication of a (temporary) problem with your system as apposed to a bug in FileZilla. So I'm closing this.

Actually happend again today.
It seems to happen, if it sends too many files per sec/goes too fast. But it's hard to figure out exactly what goes wrong.

Any suggestion on what I could try, to find out what creates the problems?

Got a new likely bug, don't know if it's actually related.
After uploading a bit and moving around (on SFTP), it crashed when I closed FileZilla.
