I am experiencing multiple problems with CS6 FTP. I am using Mac OS X (Lion) and I have applied the DW CS6 12.0.1 updater. Still cannot put and have the permissions on the file be anything other than 0. I have to change the permissions on the file manually to 644. I cannot overwrite a file on the remote server after editing. I have to delete the old file, upload the edited file and then manually change the permissions. This occurs with all file types - html, pdf, JPEG and Gif. Sometimes, if I completely close Dreamweaver and start with another site, the first file I put will be ok, but everything after that one is a problem. I have several sites on mainehost.com and bluehost.com. Mainehost.com uses Pure-FTPd [privsep] [TLS]. Bluehost uses Pure-FTPd [privsep] [TLS]. Also experiencing same problems with an Intranet server using WS_FTP Server 7.5(53268144). This problem occurs whether I put from the edit window after saving or from the Files window. I have no confidence in CS6 and have gone back to CS5.5. Please take this problem seriously!
Have you tried using any third party tool like FileZilla (client) or WS-FTP (client)? I have noticed you are using WS-FTP server so it would be a good idea if you can use the client version to upload the files. Worth a try to see if there is anything wrong in the configuration of your FTP.
All the FTP problems I have see here are about Apple Macs sp perhaps there must be something in Macs that is not working correctly. I don't use Macs so I don't have the solution for you. However, people here don't like me saying Windows hasn't got such probelms. I wonder why!! Never seen anybody posting FTP problems on their windows system though I expect these to flood in now that I have mentioned it. This is life here.

This is complete nonsense.

DW's FTP has gotten its share of gripes both from Windows and Mac users. I can't say that I've seen a serious platform imbalance over time, although there has definitely been a spate of complaints from Mac users in CS6. I use DW routinely on PCs and occasionally on Macs and can say that since DW2, I've not felt the need to switch to a 3rd-party FTP program, nor have I experienced any of the current problems on Macs with CS6, so as far as I can see there are still too many variables involved to lay those problems on DW. I have a strong suspicion, though, that Mountain Lion is involved....
Hi there, i'm experiencing exactly the same problem. I was working on 2 different websites yesterday and kept getting 'access denied' when viewing my uploaded pages then I realised that Dreamweaver was changing my permissions everytime I uploaded a file. I'm using a Mac (Lion 10.7.4). I got so frustrated that i'm now using Dreamweaver 5. I hope they sort this out soon.
I really feel for all of you experiencing this problem. Sure, the real issued could be some weird mix of DW, the web host and the OS. But there's no good reason there should still be any problems at all with FTP. It's a basic protocol, been around since command line days and before.
And even if there is OS or server involvement, it's up to the client to be able to negotiate these things unless something is really extremely haywire on the other end. Hopefully CS 7 i sstill far enough away that this will get patched. I'm still on CS4 and still can't select my local web folder without going one extra level deep. That's something that just went ignored with the solution being to upgrade to CS5.
I can confirm that there is also a problem uploading with FileZilla. Can't make a directory or upload files without manually assigning permissions. Strangely enough, when I assigned the correct permission to the first of four files in a directory, the remaining three were automatically changed to 644 without my touching them. I'm more convinced now that this is a iOS Lion problem.
I'm having similar problems. I'm using dreamweaver CS6 on a 64-bit Windows 7 Home Premium machine (fully updated). When I try to upload with dreamweaver's FTP, it seems to randomly change the permission settings of the file I just uploaded AND the folder that contains the file. To make it worse, DW reports the files as having the correct permissions. That is, if I check in DW it will say a file has a chmod of 775, but when I check in Filezilla, that same file will be reported at 700 (or something else). The problem only seems to be happening on Yahoo servers for me. I can upload to other servers just fine, and I've contacted Yahoo and they said the problem isn't on their end.
