500 SITE not understood
Posted on 2004-08-08
Hey Guys...Need Help!!!
I have a unix box with linux redhat, and for some reason, the server has stopped offering the CHMOD via FTP function. You know, you can access via FTP, and then right mouse click a file or folder, and choose properties, and change the permissions to 770, 755, 777 and so on. My server used to offer this function, but stopped doing so straight after a script I was installing returned an error. I did not think twice, cause we all get the unix based error code if the script is not configed right. But now I have to log into my server via the interface, and access the file management, and then change the permissions, which is long winded. With FTP, I could choose 100 files, then right mouse click, and change them all in a flash, but now it takes me all day. I have asked my providor for help, but as I am a deadicated client, then simply suggest a $50.00 an hour service change, and loads of red tap before they will work on it. I am not an expert, hence my subscription to you guys, but if there anyway I can as a noob, adjust or get this function back myself. The code my FTP client reports is below:
( 1 ) I create a folder on root called "New Folder"
( 2 ) I right mouse click it and offer a 777 CHMOD command
( 3 ) It return the following?
500-'SITE CHMOD 777 New Folder' not understood.
