The seemingly common 'no such file or directory' issue (4 posts)

    Well, this seems to be something that is at least somewhat common but I haven't read anything in the previous posts that has fixed my problem, so...

    I've been problem-free for some time now using Fetch but just recently wanted to make some changes to the website and upon attempting to upload a particular file got the 'no such file or directory' error message.

    I tried to uncheck the 'use passive mode' while Fetch had no connection open but with no change.

    I also updated my 5.1.1 version to the latest 5.2.1 but still no change.

    My transcript window shows the following;

    Hi,

    It looks like there is already a contact.html file there already - I don't know if that's from a previous failed attempt to upload or not. What happens if you delete the existing contact.html, and then try to upload the file again?

    The next thing I would check is to make sure that you are not out of space (quota) in your account on the server. Servers usually do not give a useful message when that happens, they give an obscure error, like this one. Find a file on the server that you no longer need, delete it, and then try uploading contact.html.

    Let us know if either of these suggestions helps.

    Thanks,

    Scott McGuire

    Hi Scott,

    Good call! The server was out of space.

    Thanks a lot!
