Hello, I am trying to upload a PDF using Python to an outside FTP server. However, I keep getting the error about concatenating string and and file objects.

CODE:

    import ftplib

    # Logging into ftp site with login information
    session = ftplib.FTP("host","username","password")
    print('Logging in')

    # Choosing file to send
    filename = "TEST12142020.pdf"
    filepath = open(r'G:\\GIS\\filepath\\TEST12142020.pdf', 'rb')
    print ('Opened file')

    # Sending the file
    print('Sending file')
    session.storbinary('STOR ' + filepath, filename)
    print('Sent file')

    # Closing file and ftp
    file.close()
    print('Closing file')
    session.quit()

 

ERROR:

    Logging in
    Opened file
    Sending file
    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "G:\pathname\UploadtoFTPTest.py", line 14, in <module>
    session.storbinary('STOR ' + filepath, filename)
    TypeError: cannot concatenate 'str' and 'file' objects

The error is pretty clear: Can't change directory to /srv/ftp/pub/crimemaps: No such file or directory

Can you verify that path is correct and the folders exist in the ftp site?
