I’ve Ubuntu 14.04 and I’ve created a non-root user and gave the root privileges as recommended in the initial server setup.

It’s a pain to keep editing the files in one place and having to FTP in another.

When I use this user to login via dreamweaver SFTP option, I only have access to /home/username/ I have also created a group and new user, but same thing happens - only access to /home/newuser/

Any help on how I can connect to var/www using dreamweaver is very much appreciated. Thanks.

Hey Andrew, Thanks for the suggestion, that solved my problem! Thanks again!

Hi Kamal, Thanks for your help. With dreamweaver I don’t have the option to navigate to var/www/. The only directory that shows to me is /home/webmaster with the files .profile, .bachrc, bach_logout and a cache folder. Here is what shows to me

Thank you.

Same problem, thanks this worked for me in DW using SFTP, but it will see the folder but not upload to it permissions?
