- Sure, actually it has happened that I've overlooked the obious once or
twice.. ;^)
But I am not getting anywhere with the uploading stuff. Has there been
problems with the ftp-upload functions?
I've tried the libURLftpUpload command, but still without success. The
strange thing is that it has worked 4 or 5 times, but that's all.
The field of libURLSetLogField is very quiet during the intents to upload.
The URLStatus returns nothing..
The docs of libURLftpUpload seems strange, the examples only use delete?
And I haven't got the "with message" through the compiler either..

Where can I find that?
