hello
im trying to create a new folder, to upload some fonts,  on a wordpress blog using filezilla and this is what i get:
CWD /wp-content/plugins
250 CWD successful. "/wp-content/plugins" is current directory.
MKD cufon-fonts
550 Can't create directory. Permission denied
MKD /wp-content/plugins/cufon-fonts
550 Can't create directory. Permission denied

the same thing happens when im uploading a theme..
any help would be great! thank you!

K@:


Is the "plugins" directory read/write-enabled?

Could be THAT simple. ;)

With Filezilla, make sure "Transfer type" is set to "binary" NOT "auto", which is the default.

spitikos:
thanks for the welcome!
Yes its read enabled.
the transfer type was auto, changed that to binary but still the same..
any other solution??

K@:
The only thing that I can think of, is that you don't have full ownership of the files on your site, as described here:

http://unixhelp.ed.ac.uk/CGI/man-cgi?chown

The only way that you can change that, is to have word with your host.

Whilst you're at it, to save any future problems, ask them to disable mod_security, too.

More about that, here:

Illori:
or maybe the op has a windows server? that can cause strange issues with creating new files/folders.
