Filezilla error: Could not write to transfer socket: ECONNABORTED – Connection aborted

The connection was being dropped during a FTP transfer.

We saw on the error logs that a timeout was occuring and it seems to be documented on the Filezilla Wiki: Timeouts on large files.

Two alternatives to solve this problem

  • Change the protocol that you’re connecting from FTP to SFTP
    Site Manager - Protocol SFTP
  • Set the connection to make an active transfer instead of a passive transfer
    Site Manager - Active FTP transfers
