    permissions

      I keep getting the following error: The server is unable to create a directory. Please verify that you have sufficient permissions to create a directory.

      I contacted the ISP and they tell me I have permission to write to the directory. Tried using advanced manual FTP set up to no avail. Everything worked perfectly before we changed the password. Everything works fine in Dreamweaver using same log ins. One thing I noticed is that even when I leave the path blank the log shows an "/" in the path. I am sure we are logging in correctly as evidenced by the log copied below in its entirety:

      Date: 2/26/2007
      LocalTime: 11:24
      Host: trj-inc.com

      LoginID: trj
      Path: /trj/

          I experience this too, with Contribute. It only occurs for me though when the FTP server is pointing to files on a remote share and not local files.

          No idea how to fix it and the files are not moving off of the remote share just to accomodate a crappy product. If Dreamweaver works fine, why can't Contribute?
