Sorry i forgot link :
1.) Make sure you're using SFTP and not FTP; and

2.) Make sure the user that you log in as has write privileges on the folder you're trying to upload to.
Thank you for your reply. Infact, i can upload a new file ( with a big file, it will return 451 error ), delete or something like that : upload a new file and then overwrite that one. i mean i can not overwrite a file if that one didn't uploaded by ftp.
Now i have to download a file to local, change it, remove his clone on server then upload.
"Chown - R user:user file" was used.
"Chmod -R 777 file" was used.
What FTP client are you using?
my FTP : FireFTP, a Firefox's Addons. @Pablo : But i don't think FTP Client is the reason
You really should use SFTP, as opposed to FTP (it's A LOT more secure). I'm able to overwrite files via SFTP w/FileZilla w/no problem.

If you want to stick with your current set-up, check out lines 29-30 of the config file you shared. What user are you using when you log into your droplet?
