The ftplog.txt file is similar to the debug.log file however it exclusively contains information relating to the FTP process within Cumulus. In other words, details of events as Cumulus attempts to transfer/upload files to your website.
By default this is not enabled, but can be turned on and off as required. Click on the Configuration menu within Cumulus and tick the 'FTP Log' menu option.
In addition to the ftplog.txt, Cumulus will also create a realtimeftplog.txt if you have enabled realtime updates to your website.
Note: the files can grow large depending on how often you upload to your website, so turn it off when not required. Specifically realtimeftplog.txt will grow very quickly if you are doing realtime uploads, say every 15 seconds!
If you exit and reload Cumulus FTP logging will be disabled.
The ftplog.txt or realtimeftplog.txt file is a simple text file containing the time and a description of each event.
It is located in the root of the Cumulus folder and can be deleted at any time as Cumulus does not read from it.
