    openssh with amazon ec3


    Hi There

    I'm using Linux on Amazon EC2 and I'm trying to access my files using filezilla.
    I'm not familiar to Linux so I'm having troubles here.

    As for the login , i succeeded the login and viewing my files
    all my directories permissions are currently set to 775 and im using ec2-user as the login user.

    Unfortunately i cannot upload/edit any file because i keep getting "permission denied" error.

    What should i do to solve this ?

    Thanks

    You need to alter the file/directory ownership and/or permissions. Have you tried logging in as root? This is a VM that you "own", so you should have root or sudo privileges on the machine.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
