I have my own dev-server that I installed with Ubuntu 11.04. When I set it up, I was fairly new to the whole "server thing", so I'm not sure that I set up everything 100% up to industry standards.
The problem I am having, is that trying to automatically update things almost never works when using drupal's UI.
I usually got around this, by just ssh-ing into my server, and using drush to update everything.
The problem now, however, is, that instead of updating the site, I am trying to install "apps" (not modules), and I am not sure how to do this with drush. (plus I want to figure out how to fix this FTP problem anyway)
What usually happens, is that I will get an error (not a specific one, just one that is saying
Error installing nameofmodule)
Recently though, I tried using a different user account with direct access to the folder (it being the user's home folder), and I am getting the folowing error
Warning: ftp_login(): Login incorrect. in FileTransferFTPExtension->connect() (line 59 of ..../includes/filetransfer/ftp.inc). Failed to connect to the server. The server reports the following message: Cannot log in to FTP server. Check username and password
I know the username and password are correct, I checked them more than a dozen times in terminal, however, I realized, that whenever I ftp into the server, I get an error if I use
ftp, but I instead have to use
Is that what my problem is? If it is, how can I get Drupal to use
ssh to transfer files instead of just
PS. If it helps, I am using the OpenEnterprise 7.x-1.x-dev distribution of Drupal
