Subject: 550 Permission Denied
Date: Wed, 4 Jan 2006 20:48:21 EST
I am trying to upload to the genealogy area and tonight get a 550 Permission
Denied. Nothing seems amiss on MY side... What do I do now?
Question/Problem: I keep receiving an error message: "550 permission denied
or 550 access denied". What does this mean?
Answer/Solution: The 550 error is a message from the server stating that the
account you have currently logged in as does not have permission to perform
the action you are attempting. You may be trying to upload to the wrong
directory or trying to delete a file.
Here is an example of when someone would receive this message:
John logs into ftp.ipswitch.com and goes to the directory
In this directory John sees a list of files for users to download. If John
selects a file from his local system and tries to upload it to this directory he
will receive the 550 permission denied message because he does not have
rights to upload to this directory. John has read and list permissions only. In
order to upload John needs write permission. He could contact the system
administrator to ask for write permission on the server.
