I need to create a folder using SSH because I can't do it with my FTP program due to some permissions issue. Can someone tell me how to navigate to a particular domain.com and then create a folder in SSH? I know how to log in, but that's about it.
PuTTY is an SSH client. Alternatively, if you would like to use a graphical user interface (GUI), there is an open source project named FileZilla [filezilla.sourceforge.net] that actually incorporates PuTTY as it's SSH connection engine. Now you have a graphical interface to your SSH client.
mkdir() [function.mkdir]: SAFE MODE Restriction in effect. The script whose uid is 10001 is not allowed to access /var/www/vhosts/domain.com/httpdocs/files/images owned by uid 48 in /var/www/vhosts/domain.com/httpdocs/includes/file.inc on line 91.
I'm pretty sure that I need to change the access for that folder. Can someone tell me how to do that?
/var/www/vhosts/domain.com/httpdocs/files/images owned by uid 48
Another thing is that when I try to go to /var/www/vhosts/domain.com/httpdocs/files/images in SSH, it says permission denied...
On many Linux distributions, user id 48 is reserved for the user "apache" which runs the httpd server. These error messages indicate that the folder is owned by the httpd server user and is not accesible by a user logging in under another name. If you want to change the ownership, or change the access rights of this directory, you either have to do this as user apache, or as user root. With your limited experience on the SSH command line, I would be very careful to execute any command as root.
I actually figured out a way around it. I went into plesk, deleted the folder, and the created a new folder giving it the proper permissions. I know it's not the most efficient way to do this, but it works.
