Permissions trouble using sftp but not with ftp

Asked by Chris Sommers

I tried uploading trivial branches (one file, or two dirs with two files each, etc.) using sftp. Each time I got permission denied errors on either the dirs or the single file. By simply changing to ftp the problem stopped. Any ideas?

Without more info, I can only guess. But giving a wrong path to sftp is the most likely cause.
ftp and sftp don't have the same handling when it comes to user home directory for example so you
have to check that first.
Giving the paths you use for both protocols and can help us make a better diagnostic too.
