SFTP problems on Windows

Has there been any update to this? Ive been waiting to use wappler and held off activating my indego because of the errors with SFTP.

I dont have to install GIT with dreamweaver to connect to the same environment on windows. This should just work.

Hi @gyco7,
are you experiencing any issues after following the git installation guide above? Are you sure you followed the second step marked in red?

I did select that radio option. I didnt install anything extra.

So, do you have issues using SFTP options currently?

I can not connect using SFTP.

Testing Connection …
cd: Fatal error: max-retries exceeded (execl(/bin/sh) failed: No such file or directory)
Testing Connection …
cd: Fatal error: max-retries exceeded (execl(/bin/sh) failed: No such file or directory)
Testing Connection …
cd: Fatal error: max-retries exceeded (execl(/bin/sh) failed: No such file or directory)

If there is something additional to step two, moreover just selecting the option, I did not do that.

thanks

No, that’s all that is required when installing GIT.
Maybe @patrick should check this more detailed.

well seems the required commands can't still be found.

Are you sure you selected to install Git and the Unix tools?

As explained in the:

second screenshot.

To check this open a command prompt and type:

where ssh

and also

where sh

and see what the output is and if it leads to the C:\Program Files\Git\usr\bin folder where Git for Windows is installed.

Thanks for your time. I did install git and the Unix tools. With the recent updates I am copy and pasting the output below the CMD output.

Z:>where ssh
C:\Program Files\Git\usr\bin\ssh.exe

Z:>where sh
C:\Program Files\Git\usr\bin\sh.exe

Also no luck with FTP and there is really not alot which you can do wrong :laughing:… I use Filezilla to get my stuff working!

I have the same problem and the same error messages. I cannot connect using SFTP. Is there any solution to this?

I just came by to say that since the 1.7 release I am getting successful connections using SFTP. I have not had to reinstall any of the 3rd party software. Nice work. thanks for your efforts.

Cheers,

Andy

Hello, we’ve fixed this in 1.7.0
It’s not longer required to install additional components for SFTP.
