atlassian/ftp-deploy:0.1.0 uploads to Build folder on remote Edited

I have a fairly simple PHP website's code sitting in a Mercurial repository.


Recently, this required a small change, and I tried to set up pipelines to help make the deployment part easier.  Unfortunately the web hosting company only supports FTP access to upload website content (long story; TLDR my client insists on using this web host).  So naturally I tried using atlassian/ftp-deploy:0.1.0, as that seems to be by far the simplest option.


Unfortunately that seems to be broken, as it uploads the website contents to /publich_html/build, and not to /public_html/ like I specified in `REMOTE_PATH`.


Here is my pipeline configuration:

    - step: 
        name: Deploy to webhost
        - pipe: atlassian/ftp-deploy:0.1.0
            USER: $USERNAME
            SERVER: $FTPURL
            REMOTE_PATH: '/public_html/'
            # LOCAL_PATH: '<string>' # Optional
            # DEBUG: '<boolean>' # Optional


Why is it creating and uploading to a subdirectory? Can I make it upload to public_html instead?


I came across this similar question:

Unfortunately that answer (use git ftp) does not work for me, as this is a mercurial repo.

Hi @Johan Pretorius . The ftp-deploy pipe is a bit different from the sftp-deploy. Basically, if you add a trailing slash to a REMOTE_PATH, the pipe uploads a base directory as well. If you only want to mirror the contents of the directory, you should remove the trailing slash from the REMOTE_PATH:

 REMOTE_PATH: '/public_html'

Thank you!  While I find this system quite counterintuitive, your suggestion worked for me.
