Hi all,

Trying to transfer site to site from Dreamhost to my new WebFaction account via FTP (using Core FTP). Total failure, as far as I can tell: for 99% of the files, it gives me the following error messages:

425 Unable to build data connection. Connection refused. (file.fil) - 0 bytes transferred

and

550 Could not get file modification time.

All the files have been listed as "Aborted" for their Status in the queue -- several thousand of them.

Try selecting the Transfer mode as "Active", if Core FTP does not have this option try FileZilla.

Are you trying to use FXP to transfer your files?

@timg: I'll try that. @bmeyer71: Not sure. I'll check. Is it something I should be doing?

No. I was checking if you were. Most FTP servers no longer have that enabled. From what I can tell, WebFaction's are not. If you have console access to your account on Dreamhost, you might want to try transferring the files right from their server to WebFaction's.
