#27 closed defect (fixed)

Relative FTPHost.makedirs creates a wrong directory when run from a Windows client

Reported by: ftputiluser Owned by: schwa
Priority: major Milestone: 2.2.4
Component: Library Version:
Keywords: Windows, os.sep, FTPHost.sep Cc:

Description (last modified by schwa)

Example FTP Layout:

/data/test_results/ is the ftp users home directory.

If I use FTPHost.makedirs() as FTPHost.makedirs(‘1234/’) from a Windows machine it creates the /data/test_results/\data/test_results/1234/ directory.

This is caused by using os.sep to reinsert the seperator lost by the split.

Side note: The original description to which the first comment refers was

host.makedirs('foo') makes a directory named "\foo" on the server.

Dear ftputil user,

to be honest, I don't understand what you mean. Could you please describe the problem in more detail? Some example code showing the problem would also be helpful. What did you do, which outcome did you expect and which output did you get? Do you use the most current ftputil version (2.2.3)?

I guess this bug is the same as the one reported by Richard Holden.

A fix has been supplied in changeset [719].

I replaced the old bug description by the one from Richard Holden.

For the record, the old description was:

host.makedirs('foo') makes a directory named "\foo" on the server.
