Maybe i did something strange here. Ive uploaded my app via an ftp-user and im trying to use ssh as the main-user to do minor editing but i dont have write access and setfacl is not cooperating.

$ setfacl -Rm u:scottsch:rwx neonote setfacl: mywebapp/script.py: Operation not permitted

$ getfacl script.py file: NN.py owner: scottftp group: scottftp user::rw- group::r-- other::r--

Any time a secondary user uploads files, they will be the owner, and this will prevent the primary user from changing the permissions on those files, but if the permissions were set up correctly for the secondary user, the primary should still be able to edit those files. Please open a support ticket so we can change the ownership for you and have a look at the ACLs.

Ahh, I was under the impression that the primary account had pseudo-sudo privileges over the rest and that an ftp account was necessary to connect via ftp.

I see what I did now. thanks
