WS_FTP - Error: 550 permission denied
Question/Problem: I keep receiving an error message: "550 permission denied or 550 access denied". What does this mean?
Answer/Solution: The 550 error is a message from the server stating that the account you have currently logged in as does not have permission to perform the action you are attempting. You may be trying to upload to the wrong directory or trying to delete a file.
Here is an example of when someone would receive this message:
John logs into ftp.ipswitch.com and goes to the directory
The text of the error message from the server, which you can see in WS_FTP's transfer log, may tell you more about the problem.
For more information on permissions please see:
This problem can also be caused by a firewall with a "no ftp write" permission set.
