cannot upload files to project website

Reported by: aaron_dotter Owned by: ctsai
Keywords: PEND Cc:
Private: no


I have tried a number of times to upload files to the project website, mesa.sourceforge.net, to which I belong. I believe I have all the correct priveleges to do this (as much as can be set by the project admin).

When I try to upload a file, I get the following message:

$ sftp aaron_dotter,mesa@…
$ cd htdocs
$ put index.html
Uploading index.html to /home/groups/m/me/mesa/htdocs/index.html
Couldn't get handle: Permission denied

Changing permissions locally does not influence this result.

Any advice? Thanks!

It appears that the files are owned by user "bill_paxton", see if he can change the files to be group writable for you. If you're not able to get in touch with him, let us know and we can fix the permissions for you.

Let us know how this goes.
