[thelist] FTP user and Joomla

I may be missing something huge here, and I only have experience with
Drupal, but why do ftp users have to be somehow entered into Joomla? In
Drupal, to add files, users just upload files in your account using IMCE or
another file upload module. I do have to install the module, I assume that
is true of Joomla too.

Hi all

I'm having a bit of an issue with a server I set up. Firstly, I'm not that
familiar with server admin but here I am. The problem I'm having is that the
FTP user is set up and works fine from desktop FTP clients, but as soon as I
put the exact same details into Joomla it chokes. Joomla remains unable to
write to files without at least 666 permissions.

I'm really not sure where to start here as the FTP details definitely work
and the FTP layer works on the server I use. Could someone please help point
me in the right direction? I have full SSH access so no problems there.

Many thanks in advance
