Permission denied


I’ve created an SSH user and logged into the ‘herod’ dreamhost machine using putty.

When I log in, however, I can’t create directories under my own web space. I just get the ‘cannot create directory… : permission denied.’

I’m in my ‘own area’.

Any help would be great.
Thanks a lot.

by ftp work fine?

thanks for your response. I changed my default FTP user (the one I’ve had since I joined dreamhost) to have Shell access.

I was then able to do the things I wanted.

Now I’m having problems with ruby on rails, but that’s another story :slight_smile:

thanks for your interest in my post.
