I am accessing one of my virtual servers
( on virtual min pro) using SmartFTP and I am
unable to delete some files, or update them.
This is what I get:
226 Directory send OK.
[19:33:34] DELE index.php
[19:33:34] 550 Delete operation failed.
I checked the permissions and they are set to 755
This is the same as the other directories on which I can
update an delete fine.
I am logged in as the administrator (root) so I should nt have any restrictions.
Does any one have any idea why I can not access certain directories
or what other settings I should check ?
This is the first time I have come accros this problem
Its not just permissions on the file…most likely the user:group needs to be changed to the user:group of the user you are logging in with via FTP
I think that this is happening because I tried a short cut.
I have some web pages on one virtual server and I wanted to move them to another on that is on the same physical server, so I went into File Manager and just dragged the sub-directory that I wanted from one
VS (directory) to where I wanted it.
This saved the time of having to FTP all the data from my pc again.
Problem is, I think that this directory does’t recognize the user that is assigned to its new virtual server.
Is there a table where this information is held so that I can get this directory properly assigned to its virtual server and the corresponding user ?
I just checked with the WebMin File Manager
and I can see that some of my sub-directories do indeed
have the previous user details.
Although I can see them on this table, I don’t know how I can edit
Can anyone point me in the right direction ?
On the command line, the “chown” program can be used to change the owner of a file.
Within the filemanager you’re using, you can do that by clicking a file or directory, and selecting the “Info” button at the top.
Thanks VERY much for your
help. I sorted it out now.
