WPDM Remote FTP Add-on

WordPress Download Manager Pro remote FTP storage add-on will help you to store your files on a remote server and add files from a remote FTP location in your package. You can explore remote FTP server locations and select any file from there to add to your package. If you add multiple files with a package enable individual file download.

How to Use FTP Auto-Import Dir:

  1. Create a dir in your FTP server
  2. Create a CSV file with all importable package data ( Sample CSV File ) and put it in that FTP dir
  3. Create another dir named files inside the FTP dir ( #1 )
  4. Put all importable file in files dir
  5. Set up an everyday cronjob for URL http://yoursite/?importcsv=1 in your server
  6. Now the cronjob will check the CSV file every day for changes, if you add new row there or update any row, it will be imported/updated accordingly.

    will this add-on enable my frontside users to access files on a remote ftp-site that i set up for this purpose?

    • Shaon

      No, front-end users will not have access to this add-on, But with next update we have plan to add user specific ftp access, then user from front-end will be able to use their own ftp account separately.

    I have installed Remote FTP add-on (the exact name of the plug-in is wpdm-ftp-file-browser.zip, included in the WP Download Manager Pro Special Pack.

    It works but I cannot see the field FTP Auto-Import Directory but only FTP Settings.

    Thanks in advance for your support.

      Please download again to get the latest version of ftp add-on. The feature is available now.

    Can I use this plugin for a initial load of around 700 files?
    And then just deactivate it?

    My understanding of it is that i’d only have to create a CSV file and add the files to a FTP folder, and everything in the CSV file will be imported. Correct?

    thank you

    After using the url to import, everything works fine.

    But when I get the short-code, from the “All files” page and add it to a post, the front-end shows

    for everyone of the files.

    To solve this I have to enter each file and update it, this creates a master key (which is blank when I open it for the first time).

    What am I doing wrong? Is there something in the CSV file I should be doing? Right now it looks something like this

    I add the files, using this plugin, and but when I click on the files I get the following error (in a .txt file)

    Can’t open /public_html/wp-content/uploads/download-manager-files/auto_uploads/ATA REGISTRO PREÇOS – RP 02-2016 – FANEM LTDA.pdf: No such file or directory

    But the file exists in this directory

    What am I doing wrong?

    How do you refresh a remote FTP? I did a test and now switched to the final FTP, but the old one is still being loaded.

  • e-labo

    Can the add-on calculate package size ?
