Ftp Problems - Can't Upload To A Certain Directory

I keep getting this error when trying to upload to my Joomla! directory:

 

FTP Folder Error

Details:

200 TYPE is now 8-bit binary

227 Entering Passive Mode (some #s here)

553 Can't open that file: permission denied

553 Rename/move failure: No such file or directory

 

I'm sure it has to do with Joomla! I've tried changing the file permission in the control panel but the file is unwritable! I'm sure if I go into my FILE MANAGER I can edit directly. Here is are the lines to change the permissions:

 

$mosConfig_fileperms='';

$mosConfig_dirperms='';

 

My question is what do I put in between the ' ' to make it so I can upload file?

Here is the location I am trying to uplaod to:

 

joomla/administrator/components/com_virtuemart/html/templates/

$mosConfig_dirperms='';

 

My question is what do I put in between the ' ' to make it so I can upload files?

Do I put in the ' ' something like 7,7,7 or 6,4,4 or would it be 777 or 644?

If you originally installed joomla through cpanel/fantastico, it should be a ownership problem, since the server installs it, it thinks it owns it (have I been told when I had a similar problem).

 

Yes I installed it through fantastico. I've tried changing permissions through the file manager but it doesn't work! Should I open a help desk ticket? Would they be able to change it for me?

I have also been playing around with Joomla, and after uploading a new language template had the same problem that the directory was unwriteable.

 

After pulling out some hair ;) I found this workaround:

 

Download the directory to your harddisk (by FTP).

Rename it.

Edit the index.php file to point to your new folder name (4 changes)

Upload it back to same folder.

Use Admin to make your new template the default.

 

In the future- probably avoid problem by uploading templates manually :)

 

Good luck!

Hello,

 

Actually this is not an error, but a clever security workaround by Joomla.

 

You can not edit the files in use like the current template your on or the langauge file.

 

If you want to edit the template, you have to choose another template as your default template and then uninstall the template.

 

I believe the Joomla explorer may get around this issue but not tried it myself yet
