Howdy all,

Currently having an annoying error pop up.

Have a sync setup to download all websites from our reseller web hosting package - we use a global FTP which allows us to see all domains hosted - each domain appears as a folder - for example domain.co.uk.

For some strange reason, the error below appears on a number of domains. To skip, I add the domain folder to the exclusions, but it simply pops up the next time. I am able to access via FTP application and view the folders which it is complaining about!
***** SYNC Error #17550: Cannot change current remote directory to domain.co.uk.
***** The server said: Can't change directory to domain.co.uk: No such file or directory
Thanks,
Nirm

When I connect via FileZilla, the folder in question is there and I can access using the same user details to log in via the script.

Hello Nirmal,

We would need to see how you call SYNC (with all the parameters) to tell you what is wrong. Try also using a full path, for example, "/var/wwww/htdocs/mydomain.com".
