FileZilla: "Permision Denied" when I try to rename folder remotely
I am having troubles on my wordpress website and it seems like the problem originates from one of the plugins I updated just recently. So, to fix this I tried changing the plugin folder's name through SFTP using FileZilla but it always gives me this error:
Command: mv "jquery-post-splitter" "jquery-post-splitter.disabled"
Error: mv /var/www/html/wp-content/plugins/jquery-post-splitter /var/www/html/wp-content/plugins/jquery-post-splitter.disabled: permission denied
and to be honest I've been getting permission denied ALL THE TIME whenever I want to change something on my site remotely using SFTP.
I also tried changing stuff around using SSH with no success. DigitalOcean support told me to ask a developer but I think the problem is not so big of a problem to shed in some bucks. If anyone have any suggestion, it would be super!!
I have a feeling I do not have the permission to actually touch my remote site. I am wondering how can I give myself permission to access my own site remotely through SFTP? Otherwise I suppose the problem could easily be fixed through FileZilla.
