I’ve been ignoring this issue for now by using root in filezilla, but how can i get my other users to make uploads and changes?

I’m having the same issue and haven’t been able to resolve it using any suggestions here or elsewhere. My user is part of the admin and www-data groups and /var/www/* is all owned by www-data, but I can’t upload or modify anything. Logging in as root works, but I’d like to avoid that. <br> <br>If it matters, I’m using Transmit, the Mac GUI.

@p_ingram3541: Run <pre>sudo chgrp www-data /path/to/dir <br>sudo chmod g+s /path/to/dir <br>cd /path/to/dir <br>sudo umask 002</pre> <br>Does that fix it?

Got a similar issue. I use winscp. I can add, delete and modify files and folders with my non-root user but any new files or folders I create/upload I cannot change ownership from my non-root user to www-data, I get permission denied. I have always have to open a terminal to chown which is a bit of a pain. Any way around this?
