    Hi guys,

    Got 2 questions:
    I have a problem with my proFTPD on my server. I can create new directories but creating new files is not allowed.
    How can i allow this?


    And the permissions are by default "542 543" in FTP. but in cPanel it is 644 for files and 755 by default how can i fix this?

    Thanks!

    What error do you get when creating files?

    Looks weird. Did you login to the server using SSH and confirmed this? What is the result of "ls -al" in that directory?

    Hello :)

    Yes, please let us know the specific error message you receive when attempting to create a new file. Also, have you tried using an alternate FTP client (e.g. FileZilla) to see if you encounter the same issue?

    Thank you.
