Default Prohibited file and directory names

I have a client who is trying to extend his joomla installation by installing a new component. He uploaded his files using ftp after unpacking the zip archive. Now the problem is when he is uploading using filezilla some files and directories are not copied and there are error messages saying prohibited file and directory names for instance .svn cannot be created or file names like 553 Prohibited file name: /web/adsmanager_v2.2.2/highslide/graphics/outlines/.svn/text-base/outer-glow.png.svn-base

Here are the error - critical error

553 Prohibited file name: /web/adsmanager_v2.2.2/highslide/graphics/outlines/.svn/text-base/outer-glow.png.svn-base

Command: SIZE /web/adsmanager_v2.2.2/highslide/graphics/outlines/.svn/text-base/outer-glow.png.svn-base
Response: 550 Can't check for file existence

Response: 553 Prohibited file name: /web/adsmanager_v2.2.2/highslide/graphics/outlines/.svn/prop-base/rounded-white.png.svn-base
Error: Critical error
Response: 553 Prohibited file name: /web/adsmanager_v2.2.2/highslide/graphics/outlines/.svn/text-base/beveled.png.svn-base
Error: Critical error


The component requires this files to work. What should i advice him to do or what can be done on the server to allow the installation since the component was purchased and cannot be edited.

Please look at the FTP server configuration file and make sure that you allow files that start with a dor (hidden files).

Just run
Code:
echo "yes" > /etc/pure-ftpd/conf/DisplayDotFiles
That will create the file.

The commands you used are for Ubuntu and Debian only. For openSuSE, you might have to edit the pure-ftpd.conf file instead.
