Error transferring dependent local 'connections' file to remote server

Error transferring dependent local 'connections' file to remote server

When uploading a dependent 'connection' file (ProductsDb.php) that relates to 'Forms' and 'eCart checkout' pages to the remote server in DW , I receive the following error:

Connections - error occurred - access denied: File may not exist locally, may be open in another program, or you may have a local permissions problem.

It 'dependently' transfers with no error with other DataAssist files, and copying over the dependent file individually also works with no error.

I'm also having a separate 'headers already sent' issue with ProductsDb.php as well. Not sure if they're related.

I don't know what would cause that error. The error implies it may have something to do with permissions. Have you tried deleting the live file and then overwriting it?

I also couldn't tell you if it is related to the error when making a database connection (that subsequently causes the header error)

If you give me steps to reproduce the error with a live url and ftp access I can try to look into it.

The error only occurs when transferring some WA files via ftp using the Files panel in DW. Don't know why this one 'ProductsDb.php' file is in the middle of several error messages.

Deleted all the existing 'ProductsDb.php' files and created new - same errors.

FTP access is in PM.

Drag the checkout.php page to the server in DW and check 'include dependent files'. The Details list will show the error and a gray box with an x in it will appear next to the Connections folder.

I don't get errors when using dreamweaver to FTP related files. I wonder if it is a problem with your site settings or the permissions on your local folders.

The only pages that this error occurs on are some recently created checkout pages and a recently created form using WA Forms. Pages created months ago using the same Wizards are fine.

That is very odd. I don't have issues when I try so it must have something to do with your local file permissions, local root folder, or site settings.
