in reply to Perl SFTP do_mkdir not able to create directory

G'day skylinedreamer,

Welcome to the monastery.

Try changing

$sftp->do_mkdir("ftp2SAT5") or "Cannot make directory: $@" . $sftp->er +ror;

to (i.e. add die)

$sftp->do_mkdir("ftp2SAT5") or die "Cannot make directory: $@" . $sftp +->error;

Update: See ++Loops' reply below.

to (i.e. change or to and die)

$sftp->do_mkdir("ftp2SAT5") and die "Cannot make directory: $@" . $sft +p->error;

If do_mkdir() is failing, you'll now get some indication of why.

I also note that there's no output from print "started thread ..., but error output shows thread failed to start: ... - you may want to investigate that also.
