Ftp - Imposible upload files

I have a problem with the ftp.
I use filezilla to upload the files, when the application starts, it shows me a screen referring to a SSL certificate.

Once this SSL certificate is accepted, I can connect quickly, delete files and download files without any problem.
But if I try to upload very small files it gives retry error.

It seems that it is doing well but most of the times it fails to upload the files, I don’t understand why, I have tried with several pages that I have been migrating from vestacp to hesticp and they all have the same problem.

I have another server with vestacp, when I start filezilla it doesn’t show me the SSL screen.

Data server:
Server with vestacp
Ubuntu 16.04
Memory: 2GB
Server with hesticp
Ubuntu 20.04
Memory: 4GB

Both servers are in the same company.

SSL implementation has been added by default to improve security. To get a valid certificate, have a look here: https://docs.hestiacp.com/admin_docs/ssl_certificates.html

Then I suggest to try again, if still errors will occure, please update this thread.

I have created a new droplet in digitalocean to start from 0, I have installed using this command.

bash ./hst-install.sh --nginx yes --apache no --phpfpm yes --mysql yes --postgresql no --vsftpd yes --exim yes --dovecot yes --clamav no --spamassassin no --iptables yes --fail2ban yes --quota yes

I have created a cloudflare subdomain with the basic options.
A -> hestiacp.mycustomweb.com -> IP_DROPLET.

  • I’ve created the default web + ftp account.
  • Created ssl with letencrypt, etc.
  • I generated the certificate for the panel: v-add-letsencrypt-host
  • I opened filezilla and tried to ftp files to this new server and got the same error.

What could be the error, has anyone tried it with ubuntu 20.04?

I’ve solved it, the problem is with my router or internet connection, I thought I’d try uploading files from my mobile and it did without problems on Ubuntu 18.04, 20.04.
The next test was to share my mobile connection with the computer and try Filezilla and it worked fine.
I don’t get the error anymore.
