20 seconds or Connection Timed Out Error

In most cases, this error indicates an issue with the Internet connection of your provider. If that’s the case it’s best to follow this procedure:

  2. Increase the connection timeout in the FTP client you are using. In FileZilla, this can be done via Edit → Settings:

You will be presented with an options menu, where you can change the timeout interval to 9999:

That’s it! Now your FTP should work without any issues.
