Heh, yes. The user with which you login on ftp is probably not the same user that installed firefly. So there’s the reason why you couldn’t write in the admin-root dir.
I was connecting using SSH and logging in as root. Same as when I installed Firefly.
It was just some naff windows file transfer client which doesn’t get on with CHMOD. I tried it with my web server last night and couldn’t change perms on that either, but it was fine with a direct connection.
Anyway, all live with Firefly and Fireplay now. 😀 I’m sat in work and streaming my test tracks using Fireplay…
