It sounds like the user you're using doesn't have permission to modify the files and directories where you're trying to create a directory.

If you're trying to have a user for the purposes of modifying files on your website, you may want to make sure you have a "Add a website FTP access user".

To do that, go into Edit Mail and FTP Users -> Add a website FTP access user. That'll add a user with permissions to modify the website.


Thanks a lot. It's ok now

Hello. I've got a similar problem. But instead I can upload files inside already created directories but I can't create new ones (550 Permission denied). What should I do?
