downloading open/changing files...

Postby mainderay » Fri Jan 28, 2011 11:32 pm

Evaluating the server. Really liking it so far. I did notice something I wanted to ask about. When I download a file (a log file specifically) that is open/changing whilst being downloaded (using Filezilla client), it won't ever close/stop the download. Is there a setting or toggle to change this behaviour? Is this a bug, or does it work as designed? Thank you!

I think that's not a problem, you said you can download the file while editing/changing it, right? OK, in that situation, it depends on your text editor program, if text editor will lock the file while editing, then you can't download it via Wing FTP Server, otherwise, you can download of course.
