Uploading files again and again on large uploads (5 posts)

    I frequently need to upload full magento or joomla installations with thousands of small files to public apache webservers. Usually I just "select all" in the finder and drag all folders/files to the connected fetch window.

    However, I noticed that Fetch keeps re-uploading hundreds of files that it already had uploaded. Fetch uploads a few folders, then starts uploading some of them again. And again. Eventually, the transfer succeeds, but takes hours.

    Why is Fetch uploading some of the files and folders multiple times?

    If I could figure out why I could save hours of time.

    Hi Sebastian,

    Thanks for reporting this. I would love to help you figure out what is going on; Fetch certainly shouldn't be re-uploading files that have successfully been uploaded.

    Could you do one of these uploads, and make note some of the files that are uploaded more than once? Then send that information, along with your Fetch.log file, to bugs@fetchsoftworks.com .

    To find your Fetch.log file, choose "Go to Folder..." from the Go menu in the Finder and enter:

    ~/Library/Logs

    Thanks!

    This happens to us as well. Could you make a post about this when it is resolved... we would love to not have to wait so long for each edit to our website. Thanks!

    Hi Elizabeth,

    After you make an edit to your website do you upload it using the Put command or the Mirror command? The Mirror command only uploads files that have changed, so it will be much faster if most files haven't changed.

    Thanks,
