    Hello everyone,
    I have got two problems on one account on my root.
    One user can not create a directory in a specific location via FTP. He just gets the error Permission Denied. The crazy thing is that it is just for this location, he can create directories in every other directory.
    Another question I have is, how to allow scripts to create directories without having the 777 permission for the whole directory whee the script is. If a user tries to install WBB for example the script is not able to create directories in the directory where the script is. That directory has got 755 permissions.
    The Safe Mode in the php.ini is turned off and the script does just say that it can not create a directory.
    I hope you can help me with this.
    Regards,
    Chris

    Where exactly is the location?

    SuPHP would solve your second issue.

    The location is "public_html/wcf/styles" and the user would like to create a directory in there.

    Seems normal enough. Check owner and perms on that directory.
