Easy Mod install stalls at step 2

Having problems installing EM? Let's fix that
Forum rules
DO NOT give out any FTP passwords to anyone! There is no reason to do so! If you need help badly enough, create a temporary FTP account that is restricted to only the files that you need help with and give the information for that. Giving out FTP information can be very dangerous!

Easy Mod install stalls at step 2

Post by ddm »

Hi, complete Newbie here. Having problems installing Easy Mod as I need to install a video mod on a forum urgently, so I can embed video files for feedback for a project. I selected FTP settings and put in the FTP settings that I use, and it gives me this:
Testing FTP access...

FTP ERROR: connection to ftp://danielmoses.com:21 failed.
This error occurs frequently when the port number is incorrect. Back on step 1 you should try changing the FTP Port from 21 to whatever port you typically use when you FTP.
My port is always 21, dont know what else to put in. Do I need to close the FTP programme when I install?

Any help would be greatly appreciated, THANKS!

Try localhost as ftp host in the ftp settings .... that could help sometimes
