Hi couldn’t upload the files through FTP. I am getting some
error: open for write: no such file or directory
Error: File transfer failed.
I think its like permission issue.

I tried to login ssh username@my_ip
Permission denied (publickey)

Anyone can help on this. Thanks

sierracircle March 6, 2015 Answer helped me to fix the issue. Thanks a lot.

The codes are:
sudo chown -R www-data:www-data /var/www
sudo usermod -aG www-data robin
sudo chmod -R 774 /var/www

I have run these codes on putty. But no use.

sudo chown -R www-data:www-data /var/www/
sudo chmod -R -c 755 /var/www/
sudo chmod -R -c 775 /var/www/WORDPRESS/wp-contents/

3 days back it was working fine. But not now. I don’t understand why it suddenly happened.
