NPPFTP crash after connecting
This bug is present from the very early versions of Notepad++/NppFTP.
I’m using the Notepad++/NppFTP combo on countless computers, the behavior is the same: on random occasions, after connecting to FTP, the app crashes. I guess, the bug is in the folder listing routine because sometimes browsing a folder (opening it) causes crash too.
What should I provide to find the bug?
I tried to install a debugger, but other than CPU instructions I can’t see. Is there a logging feature or debug mode for NppFTP?
I know there is/was a problem when the connection to the ftp server was dropped could
lead to a crash. Not sure if this is still an issue but should be easy to test if you know
the ftp timeouts of your ftp servers.
I’m not aware of any builtin logging or debugging functions other than the messages window.
Could you please check for the known issues (https://github.com/ashkulz/NppFTP/issues/47 and https://github.com/ashkulz/NppFTP/issues/86) at https://github.com/ashkulz/NppFTP and create a new one if your problem is not similar to one of the known ones. Please provide some infos on the used version of n++, nppftp, windows. If it is a specific public ftp server with which the crashes happens please provide also that info.
In general coredump information would be helpful. To create one, see https://stackoverflow.com/questions/8866064/application-crashes-on-start-how-to-get-a-crash-dump-file?
I think I’ve found the issue here… basically I moved my SSH keys to a new folder so it couldn’t find the .pem file.
This seem to be what causes NP to crash completely.
