Unable to change directory error during FTP selection

Post by Diego898 » Thu Jan 17, 2013 11:00 pm

hello

I am running a wordpress site out of /usr/share/wordpress/ accessible by mydomain.com In that folder I created a forum folder and installed phpbb3 everything is fine. I then installed automod and everything went fine. Now when I try to change to the FTP method as described here, I put in all correct information but I get the following error: Unable to change directory.

I assuming it has something to do with the fact that my ftp user is diego but the user/group that owns /usr/share/wordpress and /usr/share/wordpress/forum is www-data.

How can I fix this problem?

more than likely the path is wrong.

for instance; if your server has a public_html folder where your website resides.

then in the ftp setup, the path has to include that in it. public_html/path/to/the/board/
adjust this to fit whatever your situation is.

The path is 100% correct. On Debian apache runs your site out of /var/www/Mysite.com which is a symlink to /usr/share/Wordpress where my forum folder resides.

I've tried both
/usr/share/Wordpress/forum

And

/var/www/mysite.com/forum

Neither work
