Expression Web 4 Get Files From Destination Not Working RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are using Expression Web 4 on Windows 7 and publishing to development and staging sites on Windows 2008 R2. The sites connect to EW via WebDav. Occasionally, we need to copy content back from staging to development (ex. an editor accidentally deletes a file).  This is working fine for smaller files, but for larger files (over 2 MB) we are getting a server 500 error and then the file is deleted from the dev site entirely. Forward publishing of larger files (from dev to staging) is working fine (even with the same file that won't copy back from staging to development). 

    Anyone heard of this happening before? I've tried recycling web sites and installs of EW on different machines but no joy.

  • It's not surprising that different installations of EW didn't solve your issue.  This isn't an EW error.  Server 500 is - as the name implies - a server-side error.  (A very generic one.)  You need to contact the operators of the server and ask them to analyze the logs and figure out what happened.
