Can't put files on server: FTP error occurred Access denied. The file may not exist, or there could be a permission problem.
Posted on 2006-06-27
Whenever I try and put files on the server (I'm using Yahoo) I get the following error:
FTP error occurred: cannot put (file name here) Access denied. The file may not exist, or there could be a permission problem.
Let me rephrase, whenever I try and put some files on the server I get this error.
Here's what I've tested and can do. I got the entire existing site from the server. I'm using passive ftp as yahoo recommends, but I've tried not using it and have the same capabitilies. I can delete files from the server, or at least the readme text file that I tried.
I first btw, copied it to my hard drive, and was able to put the file back on the server.
I can create folders on the server and get them, and I can create folders locally and put them on the server.
I can put any txt file on the server, both in pre-existing folders and the ones I created in dreamweaver.
I can put a blank html file on the server. As in, I tell dreamweaver to create a new html file and never open it or type even a word of text in the body. Sometimes these load fine, sometimes the file extension seems to get messed up.
I've tried draging and dropping just in case there was a pathway problem.
I cannot put html files in general, jpgs or pngs. These are the only other things I've tested as they are what I need.
I think it's Yahoo. Yahoo says its Dreamweaver.
Also, I don't know if this has anything to do with it, but when I upload a file to the remote server (a txt file) the time I see it dated is not the time the Yahoo people see it dated. And its not timezones, as the minutes are different. (This is also a problem with the log files on the remote server, all of which the yahoo people and I see different times last modified, sometimes hours, sometimes days, sometimes minutes apart (in terms of the difference we see). Also, some of the log files seem to have deleted themselves from the server. I have them locally, because when I first got everything from the server they were there, but they're no longer on the server)
