smf upgrade from 2.13 to 2.14
« on: February 03, 2019, 06:55:36 PM »
Hi all, iam trying to upgrade smf forums from 2.013 to 2.014 . the forums run by vps running ubuntu 14.04 . the upgrade says it needs access to certain folders and to enter ftp  info, so I installed vsftpd and created a user. but it says the user doesnt have write permissions. what do i enter to give the user i created write perms to smf forums. thanks :)

If you have access to the files and folders, could be easier for you to just make the files writable.
The error is not something you can change from SMF, but your FTP user doesn't have sufficient permissions to edit files on your server.

How you can help SMF

"Before you allow people access to your forum, especially in an administrative position, you must be aware that that person can seriously damage your forum.
 Therefore, you should only allow people that you trust, implicitly, to have such access." -Douglas
