    I have a problem with FTP after upgrading to 7.4.1, the problem is still there in 7.4.2 as well. I can no longer overwrite files with FTP. I can delete the files and upload the new versions in their place, but I can't simply overwrite like I should be able to, instead I get:

    550 index.php: Overwrite permission denied

    This happens on every account on the server and in any directory. I haven't changed any settings, the problem started happening immediately after I upgraded to 7.4.1. Any ideas?

    No problems on any of the machines I oversee. Check ownersh.../permissions on the file....check to make sure nothing has changed in your ftp client.

    Permissions on the file are correct. It's not the FTP client, I've had multiple clients confirm the problem.

    Ownership is also correct. Like I said, the users are able to delete files and upload the updated file in its place, but trying to overwrite results in the error message from my first post.

    Check your ftp config file to make sure the overwrite directive is there.

    Where's the FTP config file? The normal admin is out of town and I don't know the location of everything.

    Probably best you have an admin look at things then....ask your host to look at it for you.

    Rackshack is the host, so they aren't going to do anything about it since it's unmanaged.

    If it's proftpd.conf, AllowOverwrite is on.

    Switched to pureftpd and overwrite works fine. I'll have the regular admin look at it when he gets back. Thanks for the help.

    I posted an alternate proftpd.conf file on this forum maybe a week or two back. Search for my username and look around...my conf file is moderately superior to what is currently distributed with cPanel.

    On my server the whole proftpd.conf was missing, so be sure to check that.
