FTP Overwrite permission denied


I can’t simply overwrite a file when putting with FTP.

Server response: test.php: Overwrite permission denied

I’ve checked permissions on the directories and the files, but all looks normal.

This is the case on all directories.

Is this the normal setup for Dreamhost, or is this a hiccup?


It’s a hiccup. Which FTP client are you using? Has it ever worked? If all still looks normal, contact Support, this type of an error sometimes occurs due to FTP server configuration, but then it’d be a more widespread issue.
