I’ve had a problem transfering files in filezilla. When i first connected as the Ubuntu (root) user i was unable to write files to the server to install a theme.
I have an Amazon AWS Ubuntu server. So the user name is Ubuntu.
After looking on the web i found that i could enter the following via putty to have access :
sudo chown -R ubuntu:ubuntu /var/www/html
sudo chmod -R 755 /var/www/html
This did work and i can now transfer the files with Filezilla.
However as soon as i entered the line : sudo chown -R ubuntu:ubuntu /var/www/html i can no longer connect to the magento front or back office.
When i put the ip address in google chrome it displays an error 500 page and i can’t understand why? Can you please help?
I can still connect to PphMyAdmin (with the ip address) and Putty fine.
I followed your excellent video to install the webserver and magento. So the other question i have is that if i had connected to filezilla as the magento user
that you made in your video. Would this this have allowed me to transfer the files? (I didn’t connect as the magento user as i haven’t figured it out yet )
Thanks for your help,
