    I am hoping someone can help me, please?

    I am trying to simply create a directory on the server side. When I ftp to the server, I run the command

    Code:

    mkdir directory_name

    However, I am getting an error

    Quote:

    500 Invalid Path

    I do not know if I have the server setup properly nor do I understand this error message.

    Thank you in advance.

    If you are using simple directories for the user, this should be possible, but if you do not use simple directories, the user will have to enter a directory first, and then a mkdir (without the ”) should be possible – provided the user have the necessary rights. This is because when not using simple directories, the root is “virtual”. It is not a real directory, only an artifical parent for the directories added to this “virtual root”, and therefore, it is not possible to create directories in it.
