SourceForge : A real pain in the arse! [Uploading]

Icon 2 Comments
Well, finally got around to fixing my engine up for a release. It's a little buggy, but it shouldn't crash. Got it all up on sourceforge now: http://sourceforge.n...ts/simplemmorpg and you can download it here.

Anyway, figured I'd have a quick rant about the complexity of sourceforge. It's a nightmare!

But thankfully, you've got me, your trusty gabehabe, to fill you in on how to do it.

I did this through FileZilla but it's pretty standard on how to upload.

See, when you're adding/editing a release, you can't just upload the file from the edit page. Oh, no. Nothing is simple, believe you me. ;)

So...

Connecting!

Connect to the server sftp://frs.sourceforge.net
username/password are your sf credentials. (Come to think of it, I have no idea what you'd do if you registered with an OpenID.)
Port: 22 (default SFTP port)

Then, and here's the bit I had trouble with:

FINDING WHERE TO PUT THAT BLOODY FILE

So, you're now on the server. The path you need to go to should look something like this:
/incoming/u/us/username/uploads
Where you replace username with your own username. For example, if your username is johnsmith:
/incoming/j/jo/johnsmith/uploads
etc...

Then, simply drop the file you want to upload into that directory, go to the add/edit releases in your web browser, and you should see it there.

:)

I always found it quite easy through the web browser way.

I did before, but I couldn't find it this time. They've changed so much of it since I last used SourceForge, plus I don't remember much of what I did to upload before.
