Does your FTP user account have modify/write access to the all the files/folders in the site?
Many thanks for your response.
Current permission settings on web server for all files/directories are 755 which according to Contributes tech notes is required in order for application to work properly.
It's a bit confusing because there are no problems to report with permissions when using Filezilla or CuteFTP.
In case this helps, I got this as a response from Macromedia Technical Support:
Contribute requires at least 664 permissions on the root directory of the site and all it's subdirectories. This means read-write permissions for both group and owner section, and read permissions for the public section. Any permissions lower than this would cause some issues when Contribute attempts to download files while creating drafts and publish files.
I'm working in a Windows environment so the 755/664 doesn't apply.
My web server administrators downloaded a triail version of Contribute 3.11 to better understand my case and had no problems whatsoever making an inital connection to my site. (They even were kind enough to send me a printscreen image to prove their sucess.
I am confident that the porblem does not lie with my webserver root directory permissions but more likely with my FTP client and its incapacity to perform a CHMOD or SITE CHMOD function. I have gone through the FTP diagnostics using my the comand line and all tests were successful with the exception of CHMOD.
