RantWebhost migration fun Pin

During a hardware/software migration by our webhost two days ago, they decided that my ftp accounts should be all lowercase. I didn't notice until realizing that the website was not available from my office. No ping and tracert is stalling after several hops...I've been blacklisted! Mad | :mad: Confirmed by connecting on a mobile...only problem is that it's out of my hands...I've no choice but to open a support ticket begging to be let back in.

6 hours later, the tech has removed the ban, whitelisted my IP address, and given me the cause for the ban...triggered by x number of failed ftp connections. WTF | :WTF: Funny, I happened to be troubleshooting another problem with a diy ftp utility. Got it working, with the exception of the main site...funny, the error message changed after several tries. Laugh | :laugh: (at the time, I was unaware of the migration as my colleague had forgotten to forward the message from the webhost)

OK, now to deal with the ftp problem...login to cPanel and check the account...try it with lowercase as it's shown and it connects. Smile | :) Progress!..but wait, that mixed case username is baked into all of those remote-client desktop applications...this breaks the update features...I had prepared for a pwd change, but not a username change! Cursing and swearing, then in a moment of clarity had to stop and laugh and take the most logical approach. Take the leap of faith and delete and recreate the ftp account. Problem solved!

Rant over. Thanks for letting me vent! It just irritates me when I have to deal with crap like this instead of coding...or lounging. Laugh | :laugh: And, if you've made it this far, have a great weekend! Smile | :)
