WPDM Remote FTP Add-on

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 a 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.

    • Shahriar

      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

  • marcosb

    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?

  • David Hager

    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 ?

  • Rafael Dominguez

    Can this notify users that package is ready, after import packages?

  • Rafael Dominguez

  • Rafael Dominguez

  • Rafael Dominguez

    Uncaught Error: Class ‘Ftp’ not found in …..httpdocs/wp-content/plugins/wpdm-ftp-file-browser/wpdm-ftp-file-browser.php:749\nStack trace:\n#0
    Change the name of the class ftp to WPDM_Ftp and not testing later is exactly what you did.
    So this a clear example that you don’t even test your updates !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Worst support ever seen.

    • Shafayet

      We do test, still, we could miss something, that is true with any developer team, but the main point is, we do take care of any found issue immediately. Also, for support and faster response please post in the forum: https://www.wpdownloadmanager.com/support/forum/download-manager-pro/. However, a new update of this add-on is just released with the fix.

      • Rafael Dominguez

        Shafayet you are a liying
        You could not tested, because there was no way that the plugin works with a wrong class name, so is imposible that you tested. LIAR!!!!!!!!!!!!
        FAST SUPPORT: ( i must misundertood “fast”)
