I may be missing something huge here, and I only have experience with Drupal, but why do ftp users have to be somehow entered into Joomla? In Drupal, to add files, users just upload files in your account using IMCE or another file upload module. I do have to install the module, I assume that is true of Joomla too.

Firstly, I'm not that familiar with server admin but here I am. The problem I'm having is that the FTP user is set up and works fine from desktop FTP clients, but as soon as I put the exact same details into Joomla it chokes. Joomla remains unable to write to files without at least 666 permissions. I'm really not sure where to start here as the FTP details definitely work and the FTP layer works on the server I use. Could someone please help point me in the right direction? I have full SSH access so no problems there. Many thanks in advance Dan -- * * Please support the community that supports you. * * http://evolt.org/help_support_evolt/ For unsubscribe and other options, including the Tip Harvester and archives of thelist go to: http://lists.evolt.org Workers of the Web, evolt !
