I have a problem accessing files I’ve uploaded through ftp. I’m new to using any kind of an internet server really so I’m not sure whether I’m doing something wrong, or whether there is a logical explanation for this, so please bear with me A browse on the wiki and a forum search haven’t turned up anything.
I’ve created an ftp-only account for a friend to use and assigned him his own domain (or is it a subdomain?) - http://ziroc.dreamhosters.com
It looks like the DNS changes have now propogated through, since travelling to the above link displays an index of files inside. I can access through ftp either directly to his domain, or through the host machine with no problems. I can upload and download files fine, and they are reflected in the index of files in the directory.
For example, going to the above URL, you should be able to see a ‘test.txt’ file.
Yet when I try to visit the file directly, I get the following error:
You don’t have permission to access /test.txt on this server.
Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.[/quote]
If anyone could shed some light on what’s happening it would be much appreciated!
