FTP Error "could not cd"

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!

FTP Error "could not cd"

Post by overmind »

Im trying to install easy mod for my forum but only getting as far as step 2.
It says:

FTP ERROR: could not cd to http://www.eastcoastdubs.co.uk/forum
You successfully logged into the server, but could not change direcory (CD) to the easymod directory. The following is recommended:

1. Are you sure you entered the correct path? Below is a directory listing of the files in the FTP root directory. The FTP root directory is simply the starting point when you connect. The path to the phpBB2 installation should begin with one of the directory names listed below.
2. Directory names are case sensitive. Be sure the easymod directory is all lowercase.
3. In some *very rare* cases it's possible that you are not connecting to the proper FTP Server. Try specifying the hostname in the FTP Server field and the port in the FTP Port field.
4. Some servers have issues with the passive mode that EasyMOD attempts to use by default. If you have the PHP FTP extension loaded, then enable that option in step 1.

FTP root directory:

Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 30 seconds exceeded in /home/www/eatcoatd/forum/admin/mods/easymod/em_includes/em_ftp.php on line 866

The FTP path is correct (http://www.eastcoastdubs.co.uk/forum) and login info is correct. The easymod directory is in the right place and passive mode is enabled.

Any help much appreciated.
