Ubuntu - 550 Directory Operation Failed with Proper permissions

Posted January 11, 2018 1.3k views
Ubuntu Apache

I’m attempting to create a folder via FileZilla on my Ubuntu droplet, but I receive the following each time I attempt to do so:

Command:    MKD /www/test
Response:   550 Create directory operation failed.

Running ls -lha Gives me:

drwxrwxrwx  4 bot  bot  4.0K Dec 27 04:33 bot

I have also tried the following:

 chmod -R 755 /home/
chown bot:bot /home -R

I’m sure this is a common issue, but I can only seem to find posts regarding the above commands which in my case have no worked :(

Thanks.

EDIT: Forgot to mention I am using apache2 and vsftp (I have also attempted to restart the services with no avail)
