FTP problems in both WEB-UI and third party

    I'm experiencing a problem which seems to be related to permissions.

    anytime that I try to upload/mod permissions/create directories (in both the webUI and Filezilla) I'm getting an error.

    ISPconfig gives me FTP: Failed to write Array/.htaccess

    and in Filezilla I get 550 Access Denied

    I'm not sure exactly how to start tracking this problem down. Any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance.

    the user you're logging in as should be the owner of the file/folder in question, and the web(xy) group listed as part of an ls- slap on the folder in question should be the same as the web(xy) name in /var/www/web(xy).

    If not, you can try chown user:group * -R on the affected folder and try logging in again.

    eg: chown web54_jim:web54 * -R will set the controlling owner and group of the contents of the folder you run the command from to the web54 admin user, recursively.

    If the user/group look ok, you'll need to use chmod 755 * instead to set the file permissions necessary for the admin user to (over)write the files in their relevant folders.

    Always remember to remember what things are set to before you change them, even if they're broken to begin with.
