module.exports = ({ env }) => ({
  upload: {
    config: {
      provider: "strapi4-ftp-provider",
      providerOptions: {
        host: env("FTP_HOST"),
        port: env("FTP_PORT"),
        user: env("FTP_USER"),
        password: env("FTP_PASSWORD"),
        secure: env.bool("FTP_SECURE", false),
        path: env("FTP_BASE_PATH"),
        baseUrl: env("FTP_BASE_URL"),
      },
    },
  },
});

You will also need to create a .env file with the following information (replace the values with your own FTP credentials):

FTP_HOST=ftp.example.com
FTP_PORT=21
FTP_USER=username
FTP_PASSWORD=password
FTP_BASE_URL=/uploads/
FTP_BASE_PATH=/path/to/strapi/installation/uploads

Note that FTP_BASE_URL is the URL where your files will be publicly accessible, and FTP_BASE_PATH is the absolute path to the directory where your files will be uploaded on the server. Replace /path/to/strapi/installation with the actual path to your Strapi installation.

Maximum file size

Please note that you may need to adjust the maximum file size that can be uploaded. This can be done in the Strapi documentation: plugins/upload#max-file-size

It is also possible that the file size limit is determined by the configuration of your Nginx server: Increase-upload-limit-nginx

This plugin has been tested with Strapi v4.8.2 and Node.js v18.14.1.
