Hi guys! Hope you’re doing fine. I am about to install via my Ubuntu 20.04.LTS system Moodle as a teacher which is a free open-source learning management system written in PHP (and distributed under GNU GPL), to upload exercises and other stuff for my students. To achieve the installation of this platform I have to upload at first all the files from here (and also do some changes in moodle/lib/dml/mysqli_native_moodle_database.php necessary to work for my class) onto the webspace of the school (which they have provided to us). To bypass the 500 permission denied error I have enabled in vsftpd.conf the write access as mentioned here. Nevertheless, when the lib folder gets reached to for uploading (i.e. moddle/lib/), I receive many 500 permission denied errors, despite I have given full access via $sudo chmod 777 -R moodle to the moodle folder and done all the above steps. Why does this happen and what can I do to upload the remaining files? THX.
