Subject: Problems with FTP PUSH
Date: Tue, 18 Aug 2020 12:46:21 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Hi guys -- 

I have a server without https and so I'm trying to establish if I can host a
repository there using ftp.  The manuals suggest that I can, but when I try: 

>git push -v ftp://user:pw@host//u/path/repos/test/.git/ 
Pushing to ftp://user:pw@host//u/path/repos/test/.git/ 
fatal: unable to access 'ftp://host//u/path/repos/test/.git/': RETR response:

Looking at it with wireshark, I can see the SIZE and the RETR of
.../test/.git/info/refs reports the file does not exist, which is correct and,
as far as I can see, normal(?), but that the RETR failure terminates the push:

<image deleted> 

Have I made an error in the setup of my repos, or some other foolish mistake?

Best wishes, 


Ian S Worthington
