#1103 closed defect (wontfix)

unable to read permissions correctly when connecting to windows server

Reported by: jpdedmon Owned by: dkocher
Priority: high Milestone:
Component: core Version: 2.7.3
Severity: major Keywords: windows server, permissions
Cc: Architecture:


As of today (since the update), I get the error 'chmod command not found' when trying to upload or change permissions on files on a windows server. This was not an issue prior to the update. When I pull up the site in Cyberduck, all permissions appear to be 777. They are not. I assume this is a problem reading the permission on a Windows server. If I check the permissions using an FTP client from a Windows box, they are correctly indicated as 644. I need to work from the Mac, and I'd rather use Cyberduck (as I have been) instead of having to find a new FTP client. This project is for an extremely important client, and deadlines are tight. Any help would be appreciated.

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

Many windows FTP server do not support permissions as they have not the UNIX permission model.
