FTPConnectionClosedException: Connection closed

Various Bloggers are seeing problems with publishing by FTP to external web servers. In some cases, the above error message, in other cases, no error but the post doesn't show up in the blog.

Let's try and look for a pattern.
  • What's the BlogSpot URL (if that option was provided when you setup your FTP publishing)?
  • What's the IP address or URL of the web server?
  • Who's the server provided by?


(Update 2008/09/22): We have 3 different possible causes for this symptom, being reported this month.

(Update 2008/07/03): This problem is noted in several forum threads as being apparently resolved. No official notice by Blogger though.

Like many Stats features, blog owners have found imaginative uses for "Popular Posts" - and overlook the limitations of the gadget. Both the dynamic nature of Stats, and the timing of the various pageview count recalculations, create confusion, when Popular Posts is examined.
