When working with sites that use “FTPES (Explicit)” as the connection type, I find after accepting an invalid certificate (code 20) for a connection, I cannot relaunch Notepad++ with the following error:
This prevents you from using NppFTP the next time you launch.
I’ve contacted the developer of the plugin and have sent some files for testing, but until then, here’s what I do to go about my merry way:
- If open, Close Notepad++ (it saves the settings upon closing)
- Open up the following folder (I’m on Windows 7):
- Delete the “Certificates.xml” file (I haven’t found any problems doing this, I just have to confirm invalid certificates again)
- Launch Notepad++
It is annoying to do this every time you launch, I find that I leave Notepad++ open for days at a time to avoid this problem — but it works.
