Can't get FTP pipe to work.

Here's what my yaml file looks like, but it doesn't work. Just stays in progress, I stopped it after 15 min. There's only 1 html file to transfer as I'm just trying to get it to work.


- step:
- docker
name: Deploy to Staging
deployment: staging
- docker
- pipe: atlassian/ftp-deploy:0.2.0
REMOTE_PATH: '/var/www/vhosts/'

Hi @Kevin Campbell. It's hard to say what might be wrong without additional info. Can you try running the pipe with debug mode enabled by adding DEBUG: 'true' to the pipe variables? Let me know if any meaningful shows up in the pipe logs.

Hi Alexander,


It still just hangs and debug doesn't add any info. Here's a screenshot after 6 min



Weird. I'd also check if your server is reachable from pipelines. You might try to run the raw lftp command.

- step:
name: Deploy to Staging
deployment: staging
image: alpine:3.9
- apk add --update --no-cache bash lftp
- lftp -u $USER,$PASSWORD -e "set ftp:ssl-allow no; mirror --delete-first -vvv -R ${LOCAL_PATH} ${REMOTE_PATH};quit" $SERVER

So I need to add






as values in quotes?

These are the parameters you would pass to the pipe, so you need to replace them with your own.
