When I SFTP a file I get "permission denied"
Last Updated -
Q: I connected with SFTP to the server and tried to place a file and got "permission denied", What's up?
A: Files need to be placed within the proper directories. When you first connect to the server with FTP you will be at the /httpdocs directory. This directory is not writeable on purpose. Navigate inside that directory/folder and place files in:
- Themes go in: /httpdocs/wp-content/themes
- Plugins go in: /httpdocs/wp-content/plugins
- Misc files/images go in: /httpdocs/wp-content/uploads
