This section describes how to setup FTP connection to be able to upload and preview images using Store Manager for VirtueMart.
FTP connection is not required, you may skip it. FTP is used for
images - downloading and uploading images for products, categories and
manufacturers. If there is no valid FTP connection specified, you will
not be able to view images and upload them to your server.
See an example of properly configured FTP below:
- Max FTP threads - the number of threads allowed. Can be used if your Hosting Company has any limitations on the number of threads.
- Cache images - has to be enabled to cache images downloaded to Store Manager.
Note: FTP account (settings - login/password) used for images
management must have rights to read/write appropriate directories
otherwise FTP feature may not work properly.
Note: Difference between FTP, SFTP, FTPS and FTPES is in using passive mode and different port number for both of them.
Click "Test Connection" button to verify whether all settings you have
specified are correct. If everything is correct, you should see
"FTP was connected successfully" message.
