  • User-448949192 posted
    I have a hoster that creates a folder with the name of the domain. For some reason webmatrix (ftp) can not upload succesfully . See the log below. The folder does exist, I just want to upload inside the folder. It does not matter if I put a trailing / or not. Any ideas? 6/30/2012 05:31 PM 5:31:48 PM: Starting publishing using FTP 5:31:48 PM: Connecting to "159.250.3.25" FTP site. . 5:31:48 PM: Successfully connected to site: "159.250.3.25". 5:31:48 PM: 221 Goodbye. 5:31:52 PM: Connecting to "159.250.3.25" FTP site. . 5:31:52 PM: Successfully connected to site: "159.250.3.25". 5:31:52 PM: Error creating directory /domains/mywebsite.com/public_html: /domains/sharepointlibrarian.com/public_html: File exists (550).. 5:31:52 PM: Error creating directory /domains/mywebsite.com/public_html: /domains/sharepointlibrarian.com/public_html: File exists (550).. 5:31:52 PM: Error creating directory /domains/mywebsite.com/public_html: /domains/sharepointlibrarian.com/public_html: File exists (550).. 5:31:52 PM: 221 Goodbye.

    Hi njdejong,

    It sounds like you may not have permissions to create or modify.  The FTP 550 error you recieved means that the file did not exist or access was denied.

    Please let me know if this helps.

    Yes FileZilla works perfectly.

    If Filezilla is working then, permissions are probably okay.  Which version of Webmatrix are you running?  Do you know the type and version of the FTP server you're connecting to?

    Hi njdejong,

    Have you tried running the "Check Compatibility" Tool from the publish menu? 

    I see some others were having a similar issue with the beta version.
