Re: WinSCP does not change do default directory?

Please attach a full session log file showing the problem (using the latest version of WinSCP). Plus a log file of FileZilla.

To generate the session log file, enable logging, log in to your server and do the operation and only the operation that causes the error. Submit the log with your post as an attachment. Note that passwords and passphrases not stored in the log. You may want to remove other data you consider sensitive though, such as host names, IP addresses, account names or file names (unless they are relevant to the problem). If you do not want to post the log publicly, you can mark the attachment as private.

WinSCP does not change do default directory?


I have configured my SFTP server so users get automatically into the ./uploads directory when they log in. This seems to work fine using FileZilla.

However I noticed that WinSCP does hot seem to do that. This is particularly a problem for an automation script. Am I missing something?
