Filezilla Problems: "550 Cwd Failed. "/": Permission Denied"

1 post in this topic

Good day to all.

I am trying to get FileZilla Server running on my Acer H340 WHS v1 box but am running into problems. I am hoping that some kind soul can tell me what I've missed doing.

I followed two different step-by-step installation tutorials: the best of the two is from Computing On Demand at http://computingondemand.com/filezilla-ftp-server-on-whs/ , the other is from Tested.com at http://www.tested.com/news/how-to-add-an-ftp-server-to-your-windows-home-server/403/

Although both tutorials are quite similar, there are small differences. I've tried both ways.

What I see on my WHS box when trying to initiate a FTP transfer is:

Both of these lead me to believe that this is NOT a port-forwarding or firewall issue at the WHS box because the FileZilla server is seeing all of the communications from the client and vice-versa. Rather, I think that I somehow messed up the settings within FileZilla.

What I've done:

Created a directory right off the root of C drive called FTPusers (C:\FTPusers)

Told FileZilla to use Port 21 and 50000 - 50100 and to use my homeserver.com address (passive mode)

Set up a group called Admin and, under Group Shared Folders, set up my home directory as C:\FTPusers, added a couple of shared folders (one is \\DW0\Music, the other is D:\shares\Public).

For the shared folder aliases, I tried several different techniques. For the test where I had renamed my home directory to C:\FTPusers\:u , I used /Music and /Public. For the test where I omitted the "/:u" (C:\FTPusers), I tried C:\FTPusers\Music

Finally, I added a user (Dwayne) to the Users settings and told FileZilla to include that user in the Admin group (selected from the drop-down box).

What I see when I go looking at the C:FTPusers directory is that FileZilla created a child directory called Dwayne - but the Dwayne directory is empty.

I'm positive that I've made some silly mistake but I just can't see it. I'm hoping that someone can point me in the right direction.

Many thanks!

    • So I currently have Windows Server 2012 Essentials (running in a Hyper-V VM) and am thinking about migrating to a Windows 10 server. I have 12 disks or so on the server all configured via Storage spaces. Can I simply connect these disks up to a Windows 10 install and have all the files appear? From what I have read the storage space info is all on the disks and it should work, but has anyone here actually tried it and succeeded. I have 10+ TB of data and the easiest way to get it to the new server would be to just connect the disks up.   Thanks, -Bill
    • Did you try CC cleaner or a disk clean up program? It seems to me that old files merged or not are still existing, do you have external storage that you could export the known good files to while you reformat and clean the 6TB?
    • Hello Is it possible to clone an external HDD containing the server backup to another external HDD? The external HDD doesn't have a drive letter, so how can I clone the drive?  I have two external drives in a Dual Dockingstation (2 drives), which has a button to clone from A to B, but I don't trust that solution too much..
    • I have a whs 2011 server, which has been running fine for years, however since I have updated the client pc's to windows 10 anniversary edition I am constantly getting a services not running error on clients, having checked the services, all are in the correct state, I have tried restarting some of the obvious ones, but with no success. if I select the fix option in the alert list for the error, it clears, but then returns after 20 mins or so. Not sure what to do next to solve this.
    • well it took a great deal of time but the repair made it possible for the cleanup to go pass the 14% strange however is that even though I told it to delete all the bad backups and merge the good ones it did not clear up any of the disk space. And adding all the good merge backup sizes together shows there should be the normal 6Tb free available. So the failed backups are gone the good backups are all merged but the disk space remains at 212 Mb. not sure how to tackle this I am going to look at it again this next weekend to see if I missed something.
