I am encountering a connection issue. CS3 is balking at
creating a folder in a directory to which it has permissions.
Imagine a setup of /maindirectory and
/maindirectory/divisiondirectory. I want to be able to allow a user
to edit files in the divisiondirectory folder only.
I originally set the user account as read-only on the
maindirectory and full access on the division directory. CS3 would
not allow me to connect to the site. The log indicated a problem in
creating a test folder, not in the initial connection.
[I should note, using this setup, I could use command-line
ftp and access divisiondirectory fine with the user's credentials.
I could create sub-folders, files, etc. in the divisiondirectory.
This setup also passed without error the little FTP Server Check
program the online docs suggest.]
I made one modification -- I modified it so that the user had
full access to maindirectory as well. CS3 then allowed me to
connect and edit files. (Alas, the user can now also edit files in
the maindirectory, which I definately do not want!)
Is this problem by design (in other words, did the designers
intended for it to act this way)?
