'bool' object is not callable

Fri May 24, 2019 8:41 am

Hello, how i solve this error in the line: shell=True(image_path,'rb')

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/multiprocessing/", line 258, in _bootstrap
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/multiprocessing/", line 114, in run
self._target(*self._args, **self._kwargs)
File "/home/pi/Project/", line 246, in ftpSession
shell=True(image_path,'rb') # file to send
TypeError: 'bool' object is not callable

Code: Select all

    def ftpSession(self, q, image_path, image_name):
      while True:
          print ('No active internet connection in order to upload the picture. Retry in 30 sec FTP')
      session = ftplib.FTP('ipRPi','username','pass') # Here you need to provide your ftp Host, Username and password
      session.cwd('image folder')                         #Give the correct folder where to store the image
      print ("FTP Connection established")
      shell=True(image_path,'rb')                  # file to send
      session.storbinary('STOR ' + image_name, file)     # send the file
      file.close()                                    # close file and FTP
      link = 'ftp://ipRPi/imagefolder' + image_name # This line here generates a link of the uploaded picture based on your webserver
      print ("File has been uploaded!")
      return link

True is a boolean constant. It doesn't have any methods. So your

Code: Select all

is a syntax error. You've probably got that opening parenthesis in the wrong place.
