    We have a form which involves the ability to add photos and submit them our team.  the form does not seem to work.  with all required field filled out and the photos only 55-60KB small we get an "Upload Error" message and it expands to include the description "Wrong Login Information."

     

    we have tested this on Safari and Chrome.

    Hello,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    This error comes about when your FTP login information does not authenticate. 

    So the error could be caused by: 

    1. Incorrect login information

    2. Domain name cannot be resolved

    3. FTP port unavailable due to server settings, security restrictions (some servers can lock access for five minutes due to suspected activity from recipient IP addresses - called intrusion prevention)

    4. FTP server process fails on server side or is not available.

    To resolve this:

    1. Use IP address rather than domain name in the FTP Host field:

    2. Check your login information

    Click on test connection.

    Please also note that when uploading a lot of files, the FTP transaction may fail due to conflicting keep-alive sync communication.

    Please let us know if this helps.

    Alternatively to the FTP integration, you can also take advantage of the Google Drive or Dropbox Integration to store your user's uploaded files.
