There is a problem with a webhost, for some reason the I am getting a ton of errors (ftp related) and they are taking a while to correct. Since its the less skilled weekend crew at tech support I am betting they'll tell me to turn off FTP layer in Joomla. Yeah sure the error disappears but how will it affect all the components that use FTP i.e. Docman etc.
Can someone explain the consequences of turning of FTP layer in Joomla 1.5 in legacy mode?
it's a shared host config'd as follows:
Database Version: 5.0.32-Debian_7etch6
Database Collation: utf8_general_ci
PHP Version: 5.2.9
Web Server: Apache/2.0
FYI Site worked great up to this morning... no changes on my end... but now FIlezilla login is super slow and I have these errors on every page:
: Timeout or unrecognized response while waiting for a response from the server
: Bad Username
: Bad response
: Unable to obtain IP and port for data transfer
: Unable to use passive mode
