Hello, seems i am not unable to archive through SSH one of our directories, it says: "permission denied". Is there a way to entrust my user with enough rights in order to be able to archive a directory?

Thank you.

None of your directories have default permissions that wouldn't allow you to read files in it (which is necessary for archiving them). You can try running 'chmod -R 0755 ~/*' under SSH, but if this doesn't help, I'd suggest that you open a ticket and provide the exact command you've been trying to run to create the archive, so we can check it out for you.

Thank you for your prompt answer. The permissions are already set to 0755 so probably the best thing to do right now is open up a support ticket. Thanks.
