this can make internal server errors (500) in linux servers

this can make installations get internal server errors (500). Some systems like Drupal www.drupal.org requires unix(LF) to function properly. You can at least make a default selection on preferences with any warning about anything. The final out put in every transfer could be
a selection per session between: 1)Leave as original 2)Convert all to Unix 3)Convert all to DOS (your default)
Is that right? If yes, please revise...

hi,

I have the same problem, the files which I transfer (up- and download) become always into DOS(CR/LF) converted. The original file is in the UNIX(LF) format. My home computer is WinXP Pro and the server besides I connects is a Linux Web server.

Why the "End-Of-Line characters" are changed? Why one leaves those not like that as it is.

Or it would not be better, when i can set the Parameter DOS(CR/LF) - Unix(LF) - No change (leave it in the original was entitled).

WinSCP convert files automaticly from UNIX 2 DOS

Hi,
Sorry for my very bad english, im a german ;)

I like WinSCP but, WinSCP convert my files automaticly from UNIX Format
(Source WinXP) into DOS Format (on Destination "dbox" linux).
Scripts in Dos Format dont run on linux :(
I looked for 3hours now to grant for a solution and found unfortunately nothing, only SmartFTP helped :(

WinSCP V4.10 Build 375
Server Environment is set to UNIX (LF/AUTO)

I surveyed something or am there an error in it?

best regards,
Michael
