FTP issue: Invalid descendent file name "http:"

I know--I've seen other posts addressing this issue, but none of them were helpful to me. I'm using PhpStorm 3.0.1 in Snow Leopard and have burned up an entire evening trying to figure out how to make a simple connection to my FTP server. I've done so in Coda and Filezilla with zero difficulty.

Why am I receiving this error? Nothing I do makes any difference.

Hi Bryan,

Where did you get that? A screenshot would be welcome.

Thanks very much, Kirill! I get the error when testing the FTP connection in the Deployment window. I've attached the error message...but is that the screen shot you wanted?

Hi again Bryan,

May I ask you to take some steps and provide the log file? It should shed some light on what's going on...

Please follow instructions at http://devnet.jetbrains.net/docs/DOC-1202. If your log contains any sensitive information (filenames, paths), feel free to send it directly to me: kirill (dot) safonov (at) jetbrains (dot) com.

Thanks,
Kirill

Sorry, Kirill! But I finally generated that log file--I emailed it to you.

Thanks for looking into this!

Hi Bryan,


Thanks for the logs,


I see that there’s a file named “http:” in the root folder. The library that PhpStorm uses to connect to FTP (Apache Commons VFS) merely fails to read such folder.


As there’s quite lot of limitations, we may get rid of the library and implement more low-level connection handling ourselves. Still this is major rework of all FTP/SFP integration, so I’m not sure which version of PhpStorm will have it fixed. I’ve opened bug report for your problem, please vote/watch it to track the progress: http://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/WI-9838

The only current workaround would be to remove or rename the file. Would it be acceptable?


Cheers,

Kirill

Thanks a ton, Kirill! Not sure how I managed to create that folder...but it's obvious that I did. But it never would've occurred to me to remove that. I did, and everything's working fine, now. I can understand why VFS was confused--it wasn't expecting some bonehead to create a folder named "http:"! :)

Thanks again....
