[Plugin: WP Easy Uploader] Files Cannot Be Deleted Off Of Site (10 posts)

    Ugh...
    When I uploaded the new themes and plugins through this plugin everything was great. But now I am unable to delete them from the server. It says Access Denied. All plugins and themes uploaded through FTP are fine, those through this plugin are not.

    How do I fix this?

    Can you see what permissions have been set on these files in FTP? You may need to ask your hosting provider for help in resetting the permissions so that you can delete the files.

    Hi Gray. I'm the developer of WP Easy Uploader.

    When you use the plugin to load files, the files added are owned by the user and group that the webserver runs as. Depending on how your hosting is set up, when you upload via FTP, the files are owned by your user and group.

    Can you give me more details about what type of host you are on? For example, I'd like to know the following:

    • What webserver host are you using (HostGator, GoDaddy, etc)?
    • Is your server running Linux or Windows?
    • If you use an FTP client such as FileZilla, the client will tell you who the owner and group of files and directories are. Would you be able to tell me the owner and group for files that were loaded with the plugin as well as for files not loaded with the plugin?

    Since this type of information could be sensitive, you can send your response through my contact page.

    I run off a private web host, I do not run off of any popular or big web host.

    I run Windows XP 32-Bit with FlashFXP version 3.5.

    The CHMOD is not changeable.

    I am only an early teenager so I do not know how to exactly find out "the owner and group for files that were loaded with the plugin as well as for files not loaded with the plugin".

    Thank you for showing interest in my post and helping.

    Interesting. I must say that I only do a minimal amount of testing with Windows hosting environments since I've never actually had to run or manage one.

    What web server software are you using? For example, if you are using one built into XP Pro, it would be IIS. Another common one for a local hosting solution on Windows is by installing LAMP or XAMPP, which provide Apache.

    I use 'localhost' in installations.

    Sorry, I'm not much help. This is a little bit more advanced stuff for me.

    If I use localhost does that mean I am Apache?

    localhost could be served by anything.

    • What program/Start Menu application do you run to manage the server?
    • Did you install any software to get the server running?
    • Are you running XP Pro or XP Home?

    I run XP Pro, I am a client not a host, and I use FlashFXP as my FTP program.

    I talked to my host and they deleted the plugins and themes and etc.
