I have been using DreamHost for several months now. Some of my websites are based on WordPress, and I tweak the style of the page in the ‘custom.css’ file.
I do my work on a MacBook Pro. I access my files through Yummy FTP, and edit my CSS docs through Dreamweaver CS5.
Up until now, I have been able to drill down to the ‘custom.css’ file in Yummy FTP, right click on the filename and select ‘Edit With > Dreamweaver.’ The file would then open in Dreamweaver, and at anytime I could hit command-S to save changes – and Growl would immediately notify me that the document on the FTP had been updated. I could then go to the live page, hit refresh, and see my changes immediately.
Today, I find that while I’m able to open the file with ‘Edit With,’ I cannot save the changed file back to the FTP. I can save the file to my Desktop and save changes there, but again I am unable to replace the FTP file with the updated file on my Desktop.
No matter what I try, I get the same message:
Message from the Server:
custom.css: Overwrite permission denied
Can someone please tell me what might have changed? I have not updated those softwares, so nothing should have changed on my end.
I work in four DreamHost accounts - personal, two for work, and one for a friend. All of the others work.
A colleague remembered a similar issue once where someone made the files on a server read-only by accident, but he doesn’t know how it was done or how it was fixed.
Anyone know how I might have ‘locked’ the files on the serve by accident?
