I recently upgraded from CS5.5 to CS6 and it appears that the method of specifying the root directory for the remote server has changed. For example I had a root file specification of /htdocs/milehighmgc/ that worked perfectly in CS5.5 both in the Site Manager and when I connected to the server from the Files Panel. After upgrading to CS6 it sttill would connect from the Site Manager but when I tried to connect from the Files Panel I got an error message that said "An FTP error occurred - cannot make connection to the host." I was able to get it to go by adding another / to the root folder definition so that it read //htdocs/milehighmgc/.
Has anyone out there seen this? Is there a proper syntax that I am not aware of after using this stuff for 3 years?
No, it hasn't changed, and I've never seen a double-slash at the beginning of the path, either. How odd.
