I am using chroot in sftp. And it works perfectly, but files uploaded with FileZilla are stored without any permissions (basically 000).

---------- 1 cwsftp sftp 4364328 Jan 19 16:02 hygq8KAZ3seC.128.mp3

This is my setup in the sshd_config:

Subsystem sftp internal-sftp

Match Group sftpusers
        ChrootDirectory /sftp/%u
        ForceCommand internal-sftp
        X11Forwarding no
        AllowTcpForwarding no

I already tried adding -u 0002 and such things, without effect.

    What client are you using. Pretty sure this is a problem from that. – cristi Jan 19 '15 at 16:11

This is a known bug in FileZilla 3.10.0-beta3 through


Either upgrade to or later. Or use another SFTP client.

  • does NOT fix the problem when connected via public key! – user267244 Jan 27 '15 at 15:01
  • @codesight OK. Does that mean, it works when corrected using password? Or is it irrelevant note? Did you try any other SFTP client? WinSCP? – Martin Prikryl Jan 27 '15 at 15:10
