Hi, my website got fixed recently but I need to back it up now. I noticed I got the 500 User: Operation not permitted error, but I wondering if the FTP servers are down, or is it an error that can be resolved.


I got the same error it would seem your site is affected by the current FTP issues sadly


Thank you. I’m just happy that my website works again. I can’t wait to download my website and make something wonderful out of it that I have planned.


yup I have the same issues, my site shows a blank index.html page and my other site I get a 502 error
