To prevent the unintended leakage of private information on customer websites we've disabled apache's directory auto indexes. This is the page that the server generates when no index.html, index.php, etc, exists in that directory. Should you specifically want to enable the auto index, simply create an .htaccess file that contains

Hi kgc,
I'm not sure if the problem I'm experiencing is related to this, but when I try to connect via (to update my personal website hosted by Sonic), I'm getting the following issue:

Status: Resolving address of
Status: Connecting to
Status: Connection established, waiting for welcome message...
Status: Initializing TLS...
Status: Verifying certificate...
Status: TLS connection established.
Status: Logged in
Status: Retrieving directory listing...
Command: PWD
Response: 257 "/home/d/davechl" is the current directory
Command: TYPE I
Response: 200 Type set to I
Command: PORT 192,168,1,75,244,73
Response: 200 PORT command successful
Command: MLSD
Error: Connection timed out after 20 seconds of inactivity
Error: Failed to retrieve directory listing

I've had my website hosted on Sonic for some years now. I've been able to update/connect previously, but it's been some years and now I keep getting this error (I've tried using and FileZilla, neither works). I also created a new post on this forum to ask for help, but no answer yet. Can you advice?
