[SOLVED] SFTP worked for a time, now broken pipe

    for some strange reason, after I had uploaded quite a number of files via sftp, all of a sudden I am unable to get a connection. It says:
    Connection to [IP-Address] closed by remote host.
    lost connection
    or similar. Any idea how this could have happened? I wonder if it has to do with the time that I was connected initially (that was several hours) while uploading files, but I'm not sure. I can ssh into the server just fine, but scp and sftp won't work.

    have you uploaded some profile stuff doing some message output on your console after login? what happens if you remove it?

    edit: reply to answer below: nah I thought there might have been a .bashrc file copied which outputs stuff on new connections, even with sftp - but you said you put the files into a different directory ... so dunno

    I'm not exactly sure what you mean, but the uploaded files were placed in a separate folder that is not accessed by the system. What could or should I remoce?

    I found the problem: the owner for some folders was not set correctly. How that changed during the upload, isn't clear to me, but it may have been caused by myself... :-(

    Sometimes changing domain name website settings may cause that. Make minor changes in it and re-save it, sometimes may fix it. Otherwise, resync tool for website may also be useful.

    It is in ISPConfig control panel, Tools tab. The fine manual explains more.
