    I am having an issue with FTP connection. It always times out when trying to upload a lot of files. Is there a way to increase the timeout time? My internet connection is slow.

    I am using Transmit as my FTP client.

    Which ftp method you using ?

    The auto created domain pure-ftpd virtual ftp user login which requires setting FTP with explicit TLS/SSL enabled outlined here ? Or using SFTP via root user login ?

    How slow is connection ?

    How many files/data size for uploads ?

    Instead of uploading individual files, you can upload a zip file and extract and move files to their destination address. Example of uploading zip file and extracting Sysadmin - What SFTP/FTP and SSH client apps do you use ?

    Another example posted for step 3 of xenforo 2 install guide at Xenforo - Xenforo 2.0.0 Beta 1 Released where I upload xenforo 2 zip with the contained files to a zip directory, extract zip file contents, chown the files recursively and move them to web root public directory.

    If unsure, practice on a test server with a test site and test zip files to practice uploading zip file, extracting and making sure to extract into a test directory and then move files extracted to correct destination. Once sure you have process mastered, try on live site/server.

    Now if the timeouts are due to CSF Firewall, see FAQ items 40 & 41 for details and clues.

    Also pure-ftp virtual ftp configuration for CSF Firewall limits are much more mature in centmin mod 123.09beta01 than in 123.08stable, so switching to 123.09beta01 via centmin.sh menu option 23 submenu option 3 outlined in 1st post at Beta Branch - Centmin Mod .09 beta branch Testing and then exiting centmin.sh + reenter /usr/local/src/centminmod directory and re-running centmin.sh again to complete the switch will set you up on 123.09beta01 and auto reconfigure pure-ftpd/csf firewall limits as well.
