FTP server backup WP - Can read but not write! (Local work perfect)



  • hello,

    I need a FTP server. I do this :

    • I use Openmediavault IP 50.0.1.50 FTP server (port 21) + passive port 60000 and 60500

    In Pfsense :

    • I set NAT port 21 for IP 50.0.1.50

    • I set NAT passive port 60000 and 60500 for IP 50.0.1.50

    With this I am be able to access with a client FTP WinSCP or FileZilla... But if I need to do php backup for my blog Wordpress It says can access BUT cannot write. :-/
    I tried another thing, I have another connection manage by a simple Modem, I do same with simple port forwarding and it works!

    Something wrong in my pfsense. Help please.

  • No one never backup own blog on own ftp server by pfsense ?? oh ..... :((

    Probably a setting on your FTP server like telling the client what the true external address is, or a user account permission issue. Though without the actual error log it's hard to say.

    Is that WP backup being encrypted before it is sent over FTP? Using remote FTP to backup sensitive data seems like a horribly insecure method.



  • Ok I set a SFTP server port 22. Do we need passive port for this too?
