Connect to the server via FTP
To connect to the server via FTP, we need a FTP client. In this example we will use FileZilla.
Get access data from the web interface
Connect with FileZilla
We now enter this data in FileZilla. After clicking on Connect it should look something like this:
That's it, we are connected to the server using FTP! On the left is your computer with your files and folders, on the right the files and folders of the server.
The following error messages may occur. These are either server-dependent or due to wrong input.
530 Sorry, Authentication failed.
Status: Connect to 184.108.40.206:21 ... Status: Connection established, waiting for welcome message... Status: Insecure server; It does not support FTP over TLS. Command: USER gpftp123456789 Response: 331 Password required for gpftp123456789. Command: PASS ********** Answer: 530 Sorry, Authentication failed. Error: Critical error: Connecting to server failed
This error message can have several causes:
- The password is incorrect
- Error on the FTP server
For the first error, you simply entered the password incorrectly or copied empty spaces. Copy the password again and check if all characters are copied and no spaces are included.
If you're certain your password was correct and the problem still persists, you should contact support. To do this simply go to the support area here. This cause, however, is rare, so always check your password several times.
Answer: 550 Sample folder/sample file.exe : Permission denied.
Status: Start uploading from C:\Users\User\Desktop\SampleFile.exe Command: PASV Response: 227 Entering Passive Mode (176,57,122,123). Command: STOR Samplefile.exe Answer: 550 sample folder / sample file.exe: Permission denied. Error: Critical error
This error message can have two causes:
- File is in use by the server
- Server is in Protected Mode
- (Minecraft special case) The
statsfolder can not be opened / edited (see more below)
For the first cause, the error occurs when there is a problem with the permissions. This means e.g. that the server is using this file, that is, the server is running and you can not edit the file.
For the second cause, you must disable Protected Mode. This is done by removing the hook at Protected Mode. This setting can be found under the tab Basic settings . Protected Mode does not exist with every game, so if you do not find it, do not worry. :-)
To fix the error, just stop the server and wait until it is turned off. Then you should be able to edit the file.
Stats folder for Minecraft
stats folder in the world folder can not be opened or edited. These are safety precautions for the GPC system. But if you need access to the folder, please create a support ticket.
