Dreamweaver ftp errors because of uppercase directories on mapped drives

Reported by: V_RocKs Owned by:

Cc: Guest type: Windows
Host type: Linux


My setup:

Virtualbox 4.0.2 Host OS: Ubuntu 10.10 Guest OS: Windows 7 Dreamweaver version: CS5

I keep getting errors when trying to put files onto my server. An example error would be:

Started: 1/24/2011 6:23 PM

DOMAIN.COM\index.html - error occurred - An FTP error occurred - cannot put index.html. Access denied. The file may not exist, or there could be a permission problem.

File activity incomplete. 1 file(s) or folder(s) were not completed.

Files with errors: 1 DOMAIN.COM\index.html

Finished: 1/24/2011 6:23 PM

The error is occurring because the directory DOMAIN.COM does not exist on the server. However, I didn't put it from a local file system with an uppercase directory of DOMAIN.COM. On my system the directory in question is lowercase,

This only seems to happen when the local location is on a mapped network drive.

I also have the same problem with Win XP guest and Dreamweaver CS5, which is really annoying. The same issue also occurs with subfolders, e.g.

actual file on disk: /site/sub-folder/filename.php

dreamweaver: D:\SITE\SUB-FOLDER\filename.php (in the document window)

so of course fails 'cos there is no directory called SUB-FOLDER on server.

But curiously if I do the put from within dreamweaver's file manager (right click on the file) the ftp works. In the DW filemanager the folders and files are all shown correctly in lowercase or mixed.
