Would you please check out a similar ticket? I think you may be having the same problem if you are trying to upload files to the web/themes directory instead of the web/sites/default/themes directory.

Replying to https://id.mayfirst.org/jamie:

Would you please check out a similar ticket? I think you may be having the same problem if you are trying to upload files to the web/themes directory instead of the web/sites/default/themes directory.

I'm being denied access to many, many directories. For example, I can not copy files into the theme directory (web > themes) - get a "permission denied" message. This is the same directory, on the live site, that contains my themes (not core themes). It seems like an .htaccess issue. I am signing in with the mcdev account...

Yes - that's because we installed drupal for you using our central drupal installation.

Rather than copying the core drupal files into your web directory, we have created links for you that link to a single, central installation of drupal. By installing drupal this way - we can update drupal when a security release comes out and automatically everyone gets the update. This makes both your site and the entire server more secure (and that's why we opened ticket #395 when we noticed that you had installed Drupal without using the central system).

With drupal - you are not supposed to edit files in the themes or modules directory. These directories are reserved for Drupal core and get automatically updated. All site specific changes should be placed in the sites/default/ directory.
