    Last week my website was transferred to a new platform. From then on, Publii throws an error when testing the sftp connection to the server:

    ‘Error.Application was able to connect with your server but was unable to store files. Please check file permissions on your server’ .

    Since Filezilla works fine, the problem seems to be with Publii, or with settings at my web hosting company. Their help desk made some suggestions, especially about the remote path to set, but none of them helped.

    This problem is also mentioned in a topic on this forum that is closed to replies. There the solution had to do with SSH. Could it be that the version my web hosting company uses is not compatible with Publii? My web host uses OpenSSH_8.4p1 Debian-5+deb11u1.

    Anyone have suggestions that might lead to the solution?

    I was having the same issue with a Netlify instance (actually twice). I got the same error message although the server was fine. Once it came out of nowhere, and the other time it occured after my laptop crashed while syncing my website.

    I just tried syncing on a different pc (desktop) and it worked somehow. Not sure, but it may be that an older version of Publii was running on the desktop.

    Hi Gyges,

    I’m using the latest version of Publii on my MacBook Air with M2 processor. But I will try to connect with my server from a Windows PC. It’s worth the try, I guess.

    Hey <span class=”bbp-author-name”>rhertogs</span>,

    I reveived your message via email, but it doesn’t show up here somehow…
    So it worked on your windows laptop?
