    I have problems overwriting current files on a site via FTP filezilla.

    The log transfers says it goes perfect but when I look at the file size and try to browse them nothing has changed.

    Svar: 150 Accepted data connection
    Svar: 226-File successfully transferred
    Svar: 226 0.006 seconds (measured here), 1.25 Mbytes per second
    Status: Filöverföringen lyckades, överförde 7*434 byte på 1 sekund

    I guess it has to do with file rights so I check with Winscp and it is 644 web1 [5004] / client1 [5006]

    What I am doing wrong?

    Deleting the file with Filezilla and reuploading a new works though but it is a hassle.

    Thats ok.

    Please check the filezille settings if ovewriting of files is enabled there. Additionally, check the pure-ftpd.conf file if overwriting of files is enabled there too.

    Is it odd if I can't find the pure-ftpd.conf in /etc?

    Please post the output of:


    And check the settings in filezilla and try a different FTP client like fireftp plugin in firefox to verify that its not a problem with the ftp client settings.

    Under Debian, conf files must be in /etc/pure-ftpd/conf/

    do a vdir there and post here file list you have there pls.

    edit: go to file that you are trying to overwritte, and see permissions pls. If a file is created as root in a client folder, the ftp user is not allowed to overwrite it.

    See timestamp of the file in the client path pls. Next, upload it again. See again if timestamp of the file has been changed. I had a similar problem 1 week ago... I was overwritting a file, all was ok... but browsin the file it was showing same old content... it was a broken link pointing to same file in another directory... I don't know is this is the same case but... well...

    By the way, this is happening with every file or just this?

    If the tipps from Erbosk dont work, then please try to execute this:

    echo 0 > /etc/pure-ftpd/conf/AutoRename

    and restart pure-ftpd.

    The timestamp changes, but no changes to the file. The bytes also differs from my local edited copy. This happens to all files on the server, I can't overwrite but deleting and reuploading works.

    No, sorry. I am currently downloading firefox and fireftpd as I am using Chrome at the moment to find out if this is Filezillas fault.

    Also try active and passive ftp mode please.

    It is Filezillas fault, maybe in combination with my NICs driver. In FireFTPd it works without any problems.

    I found this thread, and it might relate. But I tried to set a speed cap on uploading in filezilla but it didnt help.

    Interesting is that I also got a Gigabyte motherboard as in the thread above.

    I have a Endian Firewall setup but I don't believe it is causing the problems since Fireftp works.
