Chmod Problem


I have created a new folder under my Domain Folder. I then transferred some Perl files into it.

Now I need to change the permissions on these files however when I try to change the permission on my file I get this error message. All the other files are changeable without a hitch.
550 Requested action not taken. File unavailable (e.g., file not found, no access).

I am using CuteFTP for my FTP functions.

Can anyone shed any light on this. I have just recently set up my hosting here.


Success, it has to do with Cuteftp and a setting called SIZE. Once it was turned off all worked well.



What settings does this apply. I keep trying.

chmod 755

with no luck. What does SIZE do?

Give us your email address. Soon you’ll get some newsletters all about it. :slight_smile:

Actually, tells cuteftp to display file sizes.


Well that doesn’t help. How did you get it working. chmod 755 is good enough for the hosts I’ve used. Even 777 doesn’t work. Do I have to reduce permissions to make it work?


Here is some more documentation:


Ok it works. You really need to check that all the modules that you are using are installed.

This perl script works:


use CGI;
my $query= new CGI;

print $query->header;

print “hello people in my head\n”;
