this is workable yet more of an argrivation
than a major bug
however I'm quite sure this problem is common on many types of Paid hosting.

examlpe.file.php ftp >>>> ERORR not allowed
example_file.php ftp >>> ok

then comes the wonderfull part of having to edit each N'
every file hope this is the English only version
Multi-lang yikes.

some hosts like yahoo also hate .htaccses as well
just hope an file_libray.php version were avail for picky hosts

    Did you contact Yahoo and tell them that they should check the extension, starting from the right and not from the left?

    oddly yahoo @ geocities uses the default tar.gzip distro
    its a few security holes behind and since thier having to fix my database again I'm
    hoping to Nix them and fast. my SUOD account on mysql is now a user account by the logssince My db has a sudo with 15 alpha numeric login and now for no reson has 0 privlages and version 2.x is about 3-4 revisions below latest I'm a bit peeved
    it's looking like sql--> php-nuke 6.0 injection.

    the default file names exsits in yahoos C-panel distro file.lib.php
    you can use Editor Cunt n paste to exsitiong file but you CAN NOT upload due to their servers file extension filter on GFTP (geocities.com)

    In theroy I could Manuly update the files via manual edit In a few Hours
    but to add any newer files however ..... in any newer updates would be a bit taxing
    since i can not create newfile.new-cool-lib.php either
    only thier cpanel dameon has the rights to unpack from tar balls with it. and I have replied to em with PHPMySql warning in red about the security holes. (I pray that i can just click upgrade and have the newer version but I doubt it)

    I just thought I'd state if thier was a picky host patched version at the moment it'd
    thought I'd mention it.
    It's not a major issue but still non the less, a bit of a problem on some rare few pain in the ... hosts like geocities.
    geocities dosent alow ssh , .files either .foward etc.

    What I find curious is that we never got a bug report about this, so this problem must be not so common.

    Please confirm: by using a different ftp client you were able to upload?
