I have a dedicated linux server that I control through PuTTy and upload files through an FTP client w a user I setup.

What would be the reason I can't upload ( replace existing files ) unless they're chmodded to 777? I've tried 755 and it gives me permission denied errors but it shouldn't.. ?

This would suggest that the FTP user is neither the owner nor in the same group as these files.

Ahhh you're right. I had one setup on a .net domain but recently deleted that and setup the .com and there was no user. So I could connect but didn't have the permissions. I feel pretty stupid. But thanks!

You were right!
