I work on a website and was recently uploading all the files to server as normal but I came to know that one has r more files were not uploaded successfully. I have given job to sync my entire local folder but, some of the files were unchanged. The filezilla reported no errors when I had uploaded. Only recently o found the issue. How to find these issues in the future? I am still a fresher and didn’t want my job to be at stake. I do verify uploaded files immediately after that but cannot check all the files all the time. Are there any known settings that I am missing here? I can share more snapshots if required. Please reply.
Filezilla File uploading issue with unreliable sync
If you are using FileZilla to synchronize the entire folder to your web server then it is more likely that many of the files from your local folder already exist on your web server. When you upload a file to your web server with FileZilla and the file already exist on your server, FileZilla will prompt you if you want to overwrite the file or skip it.
If you select to skip the file, the file from your local hard drive that you are uploading will not be uploaded and the file on your web server will not be updated.
If you select to overwrite the file, the file you are uploading from your local hard drive will be uploaded to your web server and the existing file on your server will be replaced by the one you uploaded.
Now, if you uploaded an entire folder from your local hard drive to your web server but some of the files on your server were not updated, that means you select to skip existing files. To fix the problem, upload your entire folder again then when FileZilla prompted you select “Overwrite” under “Action” then check “Apply to current queue only” and click “OK” to start synchronizing the folder.
This should fix the problem. If you haven’t updated yet, download the latest FileZilla Client. The latest version at the moment, FileZilla 3.32.0, supports Windows 7, Windows 8.x, and Windows 10. Support for Windows XP and Windows Vista have been dropped.
