I was trying to upload a website that I’ve created onto a droplet server. Was able to login via FTP just fine (through FileZilla). When I tried moving my files to the /var/www directory it refused to upload the file. The reason for file transfer failure was that the directory was open for write: permission denied.
Here is the log: Status: Starting upload of /Users/andrewp/Documents/Freelance_Projects/TechArtista+Kyte/kyte_site/kyte_site.html Status: Retrieving directory listing… Command: ls Status: Listing directory /var/www/html Command: put “/Users/andrewp/Documents/Freelance_Projects/TechArtista+Kyte/kyte_site/kyte_site.html” “kyte_site.html” Error: /var/www/html/kyte_site.html: open for write: permission denied Error: File transfer failed Status: Retrieving directory listing… Command: ls Status: Listing directory /var/www/html Status: Directory listing successful
This is the first time I’ve done anything like this so help would be great :)
