I am trying to make a copy of my wordpress site folder under webapps. However when i issue cp or mv command in ssh, i get denied.
The following is what i did:
[kentzo@web204 webapps]$ pwd
[kentzo@web204 webapps]$ ls -l
drwxr-xr-x 6 kentzo kentzo 4096 Sep 20 10:19 momo
drwxr-xr-x 5 kentzo kentzo 4096 Jul 29 03:30 wp_3_1
[kentzo@web204 webapps]$ whoami
[kentzo@web204 webapps]$ mv momo momo.bak
mv: cannot move
How to make a backup copy of the folder under webapps?
What i want to do is actually make momo a symbolic link. Then i will checkout my new wordpress folder under /webapps then point momo to my new folder. By doing this i do not need to change any apache configuration file. Is this possible?

The webapps folder is owned by root, and only the control panel can create directories within it (when you create an app). So, you could create a new Static/CGI/PHP app and copy the contents of momo into the new app's directory.
If you then want to have the app "momo" be a symbolic link, you'd need to delete the app from the control panel, and create a new app named "momo" that is a symbolic link app.
I hope this helps!
