Slow ftp uploads with multiple files (dot5hosting)
Just signed up with dot5hosting, and am trying to upload a folder containing about 200 files (its a filesharing script). The size of the folder is only 2.2mb, and I have tried several clients to upload it, and it wants to take in excess of 18 hours.
I can however transfer a single file of the same size in a matter of minutes, so I know its not my upload spped, or client...
One host I spoke with told me that it may be due to the way their diskspace is managed, and mentioned something about inodes, and how that sometimes it is more difficult to upload many small files, rather than a large one...???
Any advice, or should I look elsewhere for hosting...???
Slow ftp uploads could just mean their hard drives are busy at the moment, but it could also mean they are overloading the server with user accounts, If the problem persists I would certinally look for a new host. Please keep us updated.

try this, zip the files into one file. upload it, then through file manager browser go in and unzip it and see if that works.
still I would open a ticket to have them inverstigate. It might be related to the quota tracking!!!
