FTP problems. Help!

Recommended Posts


I've been updating a website for a former boss and i'm looking to upload it and replace the old site.

If I am uploading a new file it works no problems. However....

I tried to replace the favicon.ico file in the root folder and got the following error:

550 Cannot STOR. No permission.

: /wwwroot/site/favicon.ico

This also happens when I try and replace any other files.

I also can't delete any old files that are not needed and get a similar error message:

550 Cannot DELE. No permission.

: /wwwroot/site/mapOLD.htm

Any ideas??????

550 Cannot STOR is an access problem, eith you don't have the rights to do what you were trying to do, or the file is in use. Being a favicon, it is always going to be in use so I would say the guy is dicking you about and hasn't given you proper access rights.

I'll see if I can figure out what else could be causing it.
