FTP Permissions


hey guyz, quick question,
To upload files to via FTP, do you need execute along with write permissions or does just write permission suffice?

you would need execute permissions as well as write for the owner at least of the directory that needed to be uploaded to, otherwise you may see this

Code:
500 OOPS: cannot change directory:/home/user
Login failed.
