FTP not working with large files, Showing incomplete values when submitting the form.Asked by tricolorlab on June 16, 2016 at 10:46 AM
We've had customers trying to send us files and the FTP form is NOT working.
they receive a message:
Select file(s) is required
Please go back and fix the problem
i've edited, re-saved the form grabbed the new embed code for my site's iframe i tried to test it by uploading an image and received the same message.
the file is 306MB file limit is set to 2GB, only 124MB of the file ended up on my FTP server.
I have tested your form and I was able to submit the uploaded file, but I have tested with a small file:
This seems to be related to the file size you are trying to upload, I would suggest you to check your FTP server and verify if there is a limit in the max size of an uploaded file, once you have verified then test the form again, please try removing the FTP credentials from the form settings and add them once again.
If after doing this the issue is still there, please let us know, we will be glad to assist you.
the FTP server is fine, no upload limit, we use it all the time to
receive large files from actual FTP clients like Fetch, etc...
i've cleared out the FTP server info a re-entered it..... i don't like
that your software doesn't put the files in the folder i specify, the
FTP user has a home directory, that's where the files should go, but
your software won't allow me to use / as the save directory, it was
/something and then it goes and creates /something/FTP Upload
which is a hassle
i've tried uploading a file, sent to our ftp server using an ftp client
originally, via the form, the first time it failed (peach colored box
with the word "Failed" in it" i am trying to send it again, this file is
the transfer gets to 100% and then the box pops up saying "Failed"
there was a limit on free accounts for file size, we were told that if
we paid a subscription fee the size limit would be removed.
if we can't receive large files easily from our customers, then your
service is useless to us.
What is the file type? Make sure is available in the allowed file types: https://www.jotform.com/help/29-Which-file-types-are-allowed-for-the-upload-field
trying to send a .tif file
Thank you for the additional information about the file type.
I checked and I can confirm that you've set it to allow that type of file.
Have you tried making the file size a bit larger to see if that makes any difference such as above 400+ bytes?
I am testing with a large Tif file, the file was sent using an FTP
client to the same server/account that the form is set to send to. so i
know it isn't the server or user account settings.
Would it be possible for you to send us a copy of this large tif file you are testing with it?
This way we can try to troubleshoot this problem a bit more for you.
we're still waiting to find out why the service we're paying you for
I have tested your form and I was able to replicate the same issue, I tested with an image with about 5 MB size and got the same message, tried with a file with 1 MB size and it was successfully sent.
I tested with the embedded form in your web page and the direct link to the form as well, with both versions I got the same error when tested with the large file.
Although I have cloned your form, integrated with an FTP server and I was unable to replicate the issue, I will escalate it to our second level so our developers will take a look into the issue and you will be notified via this thread when this is resolved.
We understand your frustration and we apologize for the inconvenience.
We are sad to hear that you have switched to another service. Nevertheless, I have followed up with our developers about the issue.
Regarding your cancel and refund request, I have moved it to a separate thread. We will respond to you there.
