Error when trying to upload to remote site - "Unable to create remote folder"

So I use the extension, create the map etc, go to upload...and get this:

/httpdocs/_promaps_cache - error occurred - Unable to create remote folder /httpdocs/_promaps_cache. Access denied. The file may not exist, or there could be a permission problem. Make sure you have proper authorization on the server and the server is properly configured.
/httpdocs/google_javascript - error occurred - Unable to create remote folder /httpdocs/google_javascript. Access denied. The file may not exist, or there could be a permission problem. Make sure you have proper authorization on the server and the server is properly configured.

File activity incomplete. 2 file(s) or folder(s) were not completed.

Files with errors: 2
/httpdocs/_promaps_cache
/httpdocs/google_javascript


Everything else for the site uploads...Ideas?

sounds like the FTP user used to connect to the site has not been granted privliges to create folders on the remote server.


You can try creating the /httpdocs/_promaps_cache and /httpdocs/google_javascript manually, or you should contact your host to have the users privliges elevated to allow folder creation.

What permission rules and which file(s) please.

sounds like a probelm with the remote site settings in Dreamweaver,


looks like the remote folder is not set properly for the remote site, it shouldn't try creating a folder named :

/httpdocshttpdocs/


there should already be a folder on the server named :
/httpdocs

on the server that the files should be uploaded to.
