How do I upload content via FTP?
File Transfer Protocol (FTP) allows CCRZONE contributors to transfer files from their computer to our servers. While we do offer other methods of uploading images, FTP is the only method used to upload video.
1. Download an FTP client. We recommend FileZilla or Cyberduck, they are both free. If you do not have one, download FileZilla here.
2. Connect to CCRZONE’s FTP Server. Once you have downloaded, open an FTP client, connect to CCRZONE’s FTP server (ftp.ccrzone.com). To do this, fill in the appropriate values in the following fields: Host (or Server): ftp.ccrzone.com Username: (Your CCRZONE username) Password: (Your CCRZONE account password) Port: (You can leave blank) Connect to the Server
3. Click the Quickconnect / Connect button. The message status shown ” Directory listing successful” means you have now be connected to CCRZONE’s FTP server successfully.
4. Upload your files. You have two options:
- You can open up Finder or Windows Explorer (or however you feel comfortable browsing files on your computer), and drag and drop them into the lower right hand window within your FTP window.
- You can also use the left-hand side window from within your FTP window to browse files on your computer.
Both of these methods achieve the same result choose whichever one you prefer. If ftp.ccrzone.com is too slow to upload your media, you can always connect to one of our backup ftp sites. Enter a number after ftp in the Host field. Current FTP sites: ftp
After Upload is Completed: waiting. Depending on your file sizes and your Internet upload speed, it will take some time to actually send the files to our server. FileZilla and Cyberduck provide an estimated waiting time as a reference, though this can vary. Once you have uploaded all of your files, you can proceed to the Resource Editor in your account to submit your work for review.
Troubleshooting: In case the above steps don’t work, here are some ways to solve common problems.
Can’t log in? Make sure you’ve entered ftp.ccrzone.com as the host, your e-mail address as the login, and your Shutterstock submit password as your password.
Did the server respond with an error when you tried to upload a file? Sometimes this is caused by file names. Your file names should include only letters, numbers, periods and underscores. Spaces and special characters like these – ;:$#()$@ – don’t work. Keep your file naming conventions simple.
Did you encounter a time-out error during upload? Try setting the FTP client to Passive Mode. Then go to the general settings and set the timeout in seconds value to 0, this will allow it to maintain a passive connection indefinitely. Then, go to the Site Manager, enter ftp.ccrzone.com in as the Host, Select FTP as the protocol and select Only Use Plain FTP as the encryption setting.
