Access permmision to a specific folder
« on: November 06, 2007, 01:17:08 PM »
Hi,

Great program!

I have access permission to a specific folder on a server (not for the whole server).
I am not allowed to the root directory.
I was trying unsuccessfully to access that folder and to upload files to it.
Is there a way to solve that?

Thanks,
Joel

How do you usually access the folder? (with a normal FTP program)
Could you enable logging and send me your log.txt via e-mail?

Right now I'm busy rewriting the program, but after I'm done I might have some time to look into this a bit longer.

I am the owner of the server. I've created a user that is only allowed into a specific directory (www.myserver.com/images/johns_photos). I can access that folder with my admin username and password, but couldn't do that with that user.

Should I fill in the host name: www.myserver.com and in the directories: images/johns_photos
              or
host name:www.myserver.com/images and in the directories: johns_photos?

Thanks,
Joel

The host name should be www.myserver.com. What did you enter as the default directory? What's the error message? Did you try if the account works with another FTP client?

- The default directory I've tried was: images/johns_photos
 - I'll give it a shot with another FTP program and I'll let you know....

Thanks,

If the account works with other programs it'd be great if you could send me your log file so I can see what might be going wrong.

Thanks!

Nils,

It's not you. It didn't work on a different FTP program (Filezilla) as well. I'm talking with my server's tech team regarding that issue. I'll keep you posted.

Thanks,
Joel

P.S:

If your program could stop and resume uploads it would be the perfect FTP program...

Problem solved.

Once I specified a directory access for a user, when using an FTP program there is no need to indicate the specific directory. When trying to log in I was redirected to the folder I have access to.
So, for example, if I only have access permission to a folder named:"images", I only have to provide the main URL: "www.myserver.com", and I'll be redirected to the folder I have access permission to. In my case:"images".

Thanks,
Joel
