I am uploading to my remote ftp server using filezilla.  I can upload to the root directory with no problem.  I can create a new folder and upload to that with no problem.  If I try to upload to an existing sub-folder in the root I get a 550 error permission or access denied.

Is the remote FTP server Windows or Linux? make sure that you have write access to all folders under the root.

What kind of server, Linux or Windows?  If it is Linux, you can probably change the permissions yourself.  If it is Windows, you will have to get the admin to change them.

If you have Control Panel access, change the permissions on your subdirectories.  You can't do that thru FTP on Windows but you might be able to thru the Web Control Panel if you have one.

Tks Dave...Tried that first thing...no can do.  I may be forced into online chat.  The first guy declared all well because he could upload to the files from his location.

They do that, don't they?  The guy on the phone probably has 'super-admin' permissions while all you're going to get is 'user' permissions.  Make sure you have the exact error message when you talk to them again.
