    Ok, here is the situation.. one of our applications has an ftp client front end for managing videos. The issue is that during large uploads, the server ftp timesout and disconnects the client at the end of the upload before the client can auto config some files on the server.

    The workaround for this is to eliminate ftp timers on the servers. Not a big deal for internal servers since we manage those, but, turns out its a big deal when we are using our internet server for demos since its on a shared host and ftp timers are global.

    The solution is a VPS account, but I have no clue how to set one up or manage domains/ftp on them.
    If anyone can give me a hand on aim or whatever I would appreciate it.

    turns out the webmin is a requested option from my host, so they are installing it now. Should be a breeze instead of the command line.

    you might want to list if it's linux based or windows and if any sort of panel is included (i.e cpanel). Its not too complicated to do that and i wouldnt mind doing it for free but im pretty busy. so much work :wtc:

    i just noticed that they charge an extra 15$ for the cpanel license. Let me order it and get it installed.

    you can use theirs, or use your own. if you're just using it to FTP, just use theirs
