Dreamweaver & Plesk

    I have a new VPS and I asked my host, who is quite partial to cPanel, which I hate because I can never find anything and it reminds me of every crummy host I have ever been with, to install Plesk. Now I like Plesk so far, but I am getting an error in Dreamweaver when I log in:

    Dreamweaver cannot determine the remote server time...

    Now this is not a big thing, but I do use that feature sometimes and I don't want my VPS server to be less than best. My host had a hard time figuring out the problem, but came up with this:

    "Plesk does not allow you write access to your ftp root. I have changed the permissions so now your dreamweaver feature should work just fine."

    Yes, in fact that did work for one of my domains on my VPS server. I don't know what the tech did, but I asked how to do it for the rest of my domains. Anybody know? Also, will this cause problems?

    Thanks,
    Denise

    In the "Remote Info" section of Dreamweaver you should have the following information;

    Access: FTP
    FTP host: your ip address ( xx.xx.xx.xx )
    Host Directory: /httpdocs/
    login: Your ftp username
    Password: Your ftp password

    Thanks for the reply. That did work. I usually don't login to my ftp sites at that level. It makes it impossible to access the cgi-bin (or in plesk the https directory, etc.) because they are above the http directory.

    You still should be able to log in even above that level.

    change Host Directory to: /

    It works for me with Dreamweaver.

    I have my directory set to / and I am getting the server time error message. Hmmm... it works for you? Did you change your server's permissions? (that you can upload to the root)

    The permissions for the top level are:


    drwxr-xr-x 2 root psaserv 1024 Oct 7 12:24 bin
    drwxr-x--- 3 ftpuser psaserv 1024 Sep 8 2005 cgi-bin
    drwxr-x--- 2 root psaserv 1024 Oct 7 12:27 conf
    drwxr-xr-x 2 root psaserv 1024 Oct 7 12:24 error_docs
    drwxr-x--- 19 ftpuser psaserv 1024 Oct 7 12:24 httpdocs
    drwxr-x--- 9 ftpuser psaserv 1024 Sep 27 2005 httpsdocs
    drwxr-x--- 2 root psaserv 1024 Oct 7 12:25 pd
    drwx------ 2 ftpuser root 1024 Sep 7 2005 private
    dr-xr-x--- 8 root psaserv 1024 Oct 7 12:24 statistics
    drwxr-xr-x 2 root psaserv 1024 Oct 7 12:24 subdomains

    Thanks, I'll use that as a guide. I'm looking for where that is now. (new to plesk)

    That should be:

    /var/www/vhosts/domainname/
