I've setup sFTP access on an Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic server but i'm having what i think are permission issues.
With the sFTP account i've created it logs in automatically to:
However, i'm only actually able to upload to:
This is not workable as i need to create directories etc parallel to public_html. I appreciate this is something i've probably done wrong as its patched together from a few help files.
I followed these instructions to create a group for sFTP access, i then created a user and then mod'ed their home directory using:
usermod -d /srv/www/domain.com newuser
Let me know if there's any other information you need to troubleshoot this.
