    Default error: Xara connection to ftp host has been lost and could not be re established

    Trying to publish website. On clicking "Explore webspace " this comes up: FTP folder does not exist do you want to create it. Click on yes and I get the above message. Am using File Zilla to upload, but this worked in the past. What could be causing this?

    Phillips, this is usually a broken server. Raise with Magix
    Acorn - installed and active Xara software: Cloud+/Pro+, XDPX, XWD Premium 15 & 12, XPGD10, X3D7, Xara Xtreme 5, back through time (to CC's Artworks).

    If it was a server error, wouldn't FileZilla fail as well?

    Double check the settings in Xara are the same as you have in FZ.

    I've had issues in the past with the Connect With settings.

    See what happens if you just select FTP. If this is successful then this may be the problem.

    Chris, without knowing the innards of the built-in Xara FTP client and its routing and the "worked in the past" assertion, it is simpler to assume a routing issue.
    Otherwise, you start chasing configurations all day. As the OP is comfortable in using FileZilla, I would have thought checking the settings matched would be been self-evident.

    Right. You will need to enter password, server, etc.

    Changed over to Cyberduck and was able to publish, even though settings in FileZilla matched Xara. Should mention that the FileZilla was a recent install on a newer laptop. My next step was going to try FileZilla from the original PC when I was at that location later.
    Only problem remaining is that the phone variant is only showing the left half when viewed on android although that half looked correct. Just need whole thing to fit screen. I though it was meant to auto adjust when viewed on phone?

    Are you sure you're placing public_html in the subfolder section in Xara's other Web Host Settings? This is the normal root folder on most web servers these days.

    When you create a variant you need to resize all the page content down to fit the smaller size. It can be made to auto fit the page if you use Scale to Fit Width option in Web Properties / Export.
