Steve has been having problems updating his blog over the last couple of days. He uses Blogger’s service to create the pages and then publishes them, via ftp, to one of my servers. This method stopped working on Tuesday for no particular reason. Normally something only breaks when someone changes something…
The ftp session was being opened but nothing was being transferred. I think that it’s the Blogger side of things that has changed as I can access the ftp account using various ftp clients.
Strange. Changing to SFTP seems to have fixed the problem.
I also cleared out the aggregator history for Brian’s Blog and forced a reload. It seems to have sorted out the issue of double postings in the listing. I didn’t look too deeply into the problem and I’ll wait to see if it happens again.
