I'm using cpanel. I used to be able to upload a zip, unpack it and drag the entire works onto my public_html folder and it would overwrite everything in a few secs. Run the update url and all is golden.
But the ability to do this stopped.
I can no longer overwrite, specifically public_html directories and their sub directories. The individual files seem to be able to overwrite, but if the upgrade has folder ( as usual), it will not overwrite. I get a message "No such file or directory" see attachment regarding the message.
I'm thinking someone goofed up my user permissions, mixed up root and my account. Is there an easy way to fix this?
It gets worse,
So, I contacted server support, suggesting this may have happened, to check why I cannot overwrite and upgrade now. They did a global 755 to everything! I was specific for them not to do this, but they thought it would fix this regardless.
Now my permissions are goofed up, it never solved this and my entire site 755. Does anyone know how to advise my support? They say the 755 isn't a big deal.
Any one know why I may not be able to overwrite directories and is there a way to get all my permission back without having to do a complete backup.
