Can anyone tell me why I cant add files to my sftp server with my root, or sftp user accounts via filezilla, after "chown root:user /dir" and "chmod 750 /dir" ...

Chmod/Chown permissions help.
I also have the CHrootDirectory option set to /dir as well in the sshd_config file
The users are jail'd, but no one can add files, not even the root user, it returns permission is denied, if any, including root attempts to add a file.
So I just have an empty sftp server x.x
I SHOULD be able to add files with my root user I would think, but I cant.

Never set up an FTP server but a couple of possibilities spring to mind.
1. 750 may need to be 760 (read(4) + write(2) = 6)
2. Won't it be the user (or group) that the FTP Server runs as that needs the permissions to /dir?
try the following
chmod 760 /dir chgrp WHATEVER_GROUP_THE_FTP_SERVER_RUNS_UNDER /dir"I used to be with it, then they changed what it was.
Now what was it isn't it, and what is it is weird and scary to me.
It'll happen to you too."
