View Full Version : FTP ASCII or Binary

I keep seeing in the user manual that all files should be uploaded in Binary. Surely search.cgi and search_template.html should be ASCII?

If you use the built in FTP function in Zoom, then you don't need to worry about this.
However if you are uploading files using a 3rd party FTP program and your host is a Linux or Unix host, then you do need to be very careful to select the correct FTP mode. Many 3rd party FTP program try to automatically guess the correct mode, but get it wrong.
The User's Manual is correct. BINARY mode is essential for the CGI, and doesn't hurt for the template.
(the CGI is a binary file, and is not a Perl file)
