Azure Web App FTP 550 Access Denied


I am trying to use FTP to upload specific files (not a full release) to an Azure Web App. Essentially I am using a PowerShell script to FTP files up to the web app in Azure. I can add new files, create files and folders but when I try to overwrite or delete a file, I get a 550 Access is denied.

I tried creating a a new deployment credential and was able to log in but the result was the same when trying to delete anything; 550 Access is Denied.

Is there any way to grant more permissions to this user or is this impossible? Thanks!


Check that you are not using the READ ONL FTP URL.

The publish profile gives two FTP url’s the bottom on is ready only and will always give a 550 error.
