    I am using the following command to transfer file, but getting the error.

    [email protected]:/$ rsync -rvzh /var/www/clients/client75/web132/web/ [email protected]:/var/www/clients/client75/web132/web

    The web directories are secured against changes if you did not uncheck that on the ISPConfig interface.
    You have to do
    chattr -i /var/www/clients/client75/web132
    on the target, and after finishing the sync
    chattr +i /var/www/clients/client75/web132

    Thanks croydon. The chattr is not required if I am using the related apache user, may be I was using some wrong path.
    I am able to do it now without using chattr-
    Thanks though.
